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.

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.

“It’s been a long journey making and finishing this record and it’s been the most difficult but special thing I’ve ever done, I hope if you listen to it you’ll be able to feel the love and tears that have gone into it and that it moves you in some way.” Birdy x
