Unless you live under a rock, you know who Birdy is. Her music has been featured in several shows, including the hit show Vampire Diaries. That was the first time I heard her rendition of Bon Iver’s, Skinny Lover. Then a few month’s later her xx – Shelter cover was featured on the show. Afterward, I could NOT escape the covers and the moody Sophie Mueller translation of the track via the delicious video did not make me forget her at all. In fact, I could not wait to hear the rest of her record. Birdy’s UK debut topped the UK Charts at Number 13 and has already reached Silver certification (it was only released in November).
Come March, Warner Brothers is releasing the 11-track debut here in the US. The debut features her renditions of Songs by Bon Iver (first single “Skinny Love”), The xx (second U.K. single “Shelter”), Fleet Foxes, The National, Phoenix, The Postal Service, and veteran troubadour James Taylor (“Fire and Rain”). The album was recorded in London and Los Angeles with producers Rich Costey (Muse, TV On The Radio), James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, The Klaxons), and Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys)! Uhm, could this all be written out for her successes any further??? We will have to wait and see. Preview the record below, grab a free track below, and buy the record when it comes out… YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED!
