Rare Birds is the third studio album by American folk and progressive rock musician Jonathan Wilson, released in March 2018 via Bella Union.

Jonathan Wilson has released two critically acclaimed solo studio albums to date, Gentle Spirit (2011) and Fanfare (2014). His first two albums featured many special guest artists including David Crosby, Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, Father John Misty, Barry Goldberg, Chris Robinson, Gary Louris, Andy Cabic and Roy Harper.

Wilson is renowned as an in-demand producer, helming Father John Misty’s Grammy-nominated Pure Comedy, as well as albums for Conor Oberst, Karen Elson and Dawes.

Most recently Wilson contributed guitars and keyboards to Roger Waters latest solo album Is This The Life We Really Want (2017). Wilson is currently touring with Waters on the Us + Them World Tour, contributing lead vocals and guitars to the touring band.

His latest studio album Rare Birds features contributions from a high-profile set of guests including Father John Misty, Lana Del Ray, Laraaji and Lucius.

The album features the singles “Loving You” and “Over The Midnight”.

The album has been released to critical acclaim and James McNair reviewing the album for Mojo magazine rates the album 4 stars (out of 5) summarising as follows “….still, it’s the pensive sensibility of Roger Waters…that seems to inform “49 Hair Flips”, “Me” and “Sunset Blvd.”, while the delicate coda of joyful album stand-out “There’s A Light”, is an obvious Floyd homage. This is the first Wilson solo album to use synths and drum machines, and as he picks over a failed relationship and its aftermath via cosmic-sounding lyrics, Rare Birds unpacks a wealth of sonic detail. In the best way, this feels like a record you could lose yourself in for months…”.

Check out the tracks:  Loving You”; “Over The Midnight”; “Over The Midnight (Live)”; “Sunset Blvd.”; “49 Hair Flips”; “Me”; and There’s A Light”.

This limited indies only edition double album 2LP record set is on gold vinyl housed in a gold foiled gatefold sleeve with 32 page booklet, poster, stickers and digital download code, pressed in Europe.
