A trembling Hammond returns to frame “Nightbirds” between plaintive, fingerpicked classical guitar and a soaring crystalline melody. An ode to escapism, the song was written on a dusty evening on the balearic island of Formentera surrounded by the scents of rosemary and juniper. The nightbirds of the title singing a plaintive want for peace and space at dusk.
