Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle is the second solo studio album by American singer songwriter Bill Callahan, released in April 2009 via Drag City.

Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle is about as beautiful an album as you can expect to hear sung circa 2009. Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle surveys a landscape that grows organically, like the time two people spend together - or the time one person spends alone (with another).

In an interview with Uncut (music magazein), Callahan described the recording of the album:  “…I recorded the basic tracks with a band, in August I think. Then gave the tracks to the arranger Brian Beattie to write some string and horn parts while I was on tour in South America and North America. When I got back we put the overdubs on, in an old fashioned way – four or five string players gathered around one microphone. The basic band is a couple fellers who I'd been touring with a bit lately, Jaime Zuverza on fine and pretty guitar – Brian described his playing style as "unmacho" which I thought was great. And Luis Martinez on special drums. The bassist was Bobby Weaver who was a friend of the engineer John Congleton…”.

Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle received very positive reviews from music critics and made several publications' year-end best album lists, notably being named the second best album of 2009 by Mojo music magazine.

This album is on black vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, pressed in the US via Drag City.
