Title : Birdy – Young Heart. Format : Vinyl Record. Label : Warner Music. Cat Num / Barcode : 0190295089603

Release Date : April 30th 2021

Five years on from Birdy’s last studio album ‘Beautiful Lies’, it may sound like a long break between albums but for Birdy, taking time to stop, experience the world and find out who she really is, was a necessary circuit break. Travelling to Nashville, home to the greatest heartache songs ever written and visiting LA drawing from classic artists Joni Mitchell and Nick Dave was the perfect way to seek inspiration. These gorgeous surroundings and collaborators seemed to know, instinctively, how to draw the words out from Birdy imbued Young Heart with strokes of the artists who had gone before.

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.

‘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.
