Lady & Bird is the sideproject of Keren Ann and Bardi Johannsson, together they made one album (in English). A project that was ahead of similar sounding (and equally great) teamups like She & Him, and Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs. Been a while since we heard from both Keren and Bardi, but this week a track from an upcoming live album was released. Forward and Reverse is a dramatic song that was released first in 2003 on the album Something Wrong by Bang Gang (= Bardi). @Fillessourires.com, we love everything by Keren Ann, and we're glad she resurfaced again - although we hope and pray she will return to her French Luka Philipsen days.
On the forum of this fansite, I read that there was a title for a new KA-album posted on Wikipedia, The badger and the steam engine, release 2009. But no news after that. Also on that forum news that Keren Ann worked with Emmanuelle Seigner on her new album (in French, yay!).
