Gary Jules to let go of Bird, fly away on tour

November 24, 2008  |  3:00pm
Sure, his cover of Tears for Fears' "Mad World" was featured in cult-time-travel/bunny-horror-flick Donnie Darko and combat game Gears of War, but singer/songwriter Gary Jules looks to rise above such things. Perhaps his new album, Bird, will do the trick.

On his fourth full-length, Jules is backed by The Group Rules, a collective that features a number of figures from Los Angeles' Hotel Cafe. The album will be released via CDbaby and the iTunes Music Store on Nov. 25, when Jules will also begin a four-week, Tuesday night residency at the Hotel Cafe (with one night at San Francisco's Cafe Du Nord). West Coast tour dates with Donavon Frankenreiter fill out Jules' schedule through February and March.

Bird tracklist:
1. Beautiful
2. My Familiar
3. The Road Beside the Highway
4. Dreaming By Needle and Gun
5. Ghosts in the Cotton
6. Goodnight Billie
7. Been a Long Time (feat. Jim Bianco)
8. Little Greenie
9. The Old Days Are Gone
