Xavier Rudd puts Australia’s roots back into roots music with his new album Spirit Bird. He discusses spirituality, Australiana, bird song, activism and more.

Rudd has long been Australia’s most authentic roots musician, playing multiple conventional and indigenous instruments (often concurrently) and exporting the ancient spirituality of our country.

Back with his new album Spirit Bird, he talks about sampling native birdlife and a New Orleans preacher into the album, how his spirituality draws on indigenous culture, his political bent, the forthcoming hectic Australian tour, and how he’s trying to convince the world Mike Rudd from Spectrum is his dad.
