Andrew Bird is on one hell of a roll. The singer/songwriter's second full-length album of the year, Hands of Glory, is now streaming in its entirety for your listening pleasure via The Guardian.

The album serves as a follow-up and companion piece to Break It Yourself, which was released back in March of 2012. Hands of Glory arrives properly on October 30 via Mom + Pop, featuring alternate Break It Yourself takes and covers of Townes Van Zandt, the Handsome Family, Alpha Consumer, and the Carter Family.
