MP3: Mark Olson – “Little Bird of Freedom” (feat. Jolie Holland) from Many Colored Kite, out now on Ryko.
The former Jayhawk and Creekdipper has a new solo album out. Olson recently talked to the Huffington Post:
“Little Bird Of Freedom” is a song about the things we start out in life, and what we hope to do and hope to become. What happens to us when those things don’t work out for us, and how we adjust ourselves and keep going is the basic morality tale of the song. I worked it up on an electric guitar, but I messed around with it quite a bit over the course of a year.
