Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Birdy had dropped her new single Deepest Lonely, set to feature on the musicians fourth studio album, Young Heart. The singer has also announced her first ever global livestream performance, taking place next month.
Taking to the stage at the oldest music hall in the world, the musician will perform a songs from her illustrious career, covering the last twelve years. Accompanied by a band that includes eight string players, a clarinet player and a French horn player, the show will be different to anything ever undertaken by the artist before, with the performance being filmed by acclaimed film director Ed Coleman.
Speaking about the global livestream, 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!”
With Young Heart scheduled to drop in April, the record is set to 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. Where previous records have had a magical aura around them, Young Heart navigates uncharted territory, painting a portrait of an artist in pain, looking for the light.
Having been discovered at the age of twelve, Birdy shot to fame in 2011 with the release of her debut self-titled record. The album featured the singers cover of Bon Iver’s Skinny Love, which sent her to the top of the charts in Australia, gaining critical acclaim which led to a sold-out headline performance at the Sydney Opera House. Fast forward ten years later and van den Bogaerde has 21 platinum singles worldwide, 1.6 billion audio streams worldwide, 1 billion YouTube views, GRAMMY and Bird Award nominations and penned tracks for blockbuster films including The Hunger Games, Disney PIXAR’s Brave and The Fault in Our Stars.
