After she releases her new amazing single ‘Surrender‘, Birdy is back with a new single “Deepest Lonely” and new Livestream event
The new single ‘Young Heart’ is quite the departure from Birdy’s previous album, 2015’s dramatic Beautiful Lies. Where Beautiful Lies was a fairy tale, Young Heart is a gritty realist portrait of the artist in pain, looking for the light.
With the huge announcement of her Livestream event, Birdy will perform a career-spanning set ahead of the release of her new album ‘Young Heart’, out 30th April. Accompanied by a brand new band that includes 8 string players, a clarinet player, and a French horn player, this show will be different from anything Birdy has ever done before and beautifully shot by acclaimed film director Ed Coleman.
Birdy shares, “I can’t put into words how excited I am to be in a room with my band rehearsing, (We’re also going to have a string section which I’m SO excited about!) Can’t wait to perform old and new songs for you all, playing live is what I love doing most and I have missed it so much!”
As befits such a special occasion this will be a one-off live event only with ticket purchase being the only way to see Birdy’s performance in this extraordinary venue. There will be no access to replays.
The global star also released a brand new track ‘Deepest Lonely’. Accompanied by a stunning live performance video from The Pool Studios, this heartfelt track is the third single to be lifted from her long-awaited new album ‘Young Heart’, following previous singles ‘Loneliness’ and ‘Surrender’
The songs on the album tussle between light and dark, between that vastness of space and the interior of home. The conflict between wanting to hide away and being compelled to go away, to new places and new experiences play out across the record.
The album opener Voyager is a beautifully written song about the knowledge and pain that you need to end a relationship, but the no-mans land where your partner doesn’t know yet. From there, the record speaks of the fallout – the loneliness, the pain of missing the person she still loves, the acceptance of grief being central to love and loss, longing for travel but the pull of the familiarity of home
