Another Is Waiting

Album: Magpie and the Dandelion (2013)
  • The first single from The Avett Brothers' Magpie and the Dandelion album features plenty of banjo strumming and lyrics about the conveyor belt nature of the music business.
  • The band explained in a open letter to fans how the album's title reflects the music: "If you think about a Magpie, it's a bird from the crow family," they wrote. "You can see them everywhere, and they've got this strange grace. And, we all know what a dandelion is. It reminds you of being a kid and watching a flower come apart on a summer day. There's a youthful wonder in that. Those kinds of feelings live and breathe inside this album."
