‘Keeping Your Head Up’ is out today!

Birdy –

"Hey!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I've spent the last year and a half writing and recording my new album. My whole heart has gone into these songs and I can't wait to share them with you.

My new single ‘Keeping Your Head Up’ is out today! It's a side to me you haven't heard before and I really hope you like it. You can find it wherever you’d normally go to enjoy your music, buttons below...

The song is taken from my forthcoming album which is out soon! I recorded the whole album in London and it's something I’m SO proud of. More info coming soon, keep your eyes peeled xx"


That news article appeared on her website briefly before being taken down as it should be posted on January 1st. If you search Birdy - Keeping Your Head Up on Google, you'll see the article link at the top of the search results. It's apparently co-written with Steve Mac and Wayne Hector, excited to hear it!

But seriously, hope this does well for her, shes due a hit after so many long burners that never really got anywhere.

I'd say those two long burners qualify as pretty massive hits, surely?

I already have her first two albums so am eagerly awaiting to hear her new material. She has a great voice and is a bit underrated and doesn't seem to receive half as much attention as some other female singers who aren't half as good.

Depends what you define as a hit, but yes I guess.

Epically long chart runs and sold a huge amount?

It's not even like #8 and #17 are bad peaks for both either.

^^ I certainly call both big hits! 'Skinny Love' - Platinum and 'Wings' - Gold, Both charted for ages too. I'd love this era to be a 'proper' success for her as even though her albums have done well neither seemed the success they should/could have been.

90 second preview:



Birdy serving us a pop stomper! ohmy.gif (A little bit of drum and bass in the chorus too I think) Reminds me a little bit of Foxes' recent output, hopefully it will see more success than she has had.

I like this a lot more than Foxes' recent non-'Body Talk' stuff, which surprises me as I hold Foxes in far higher regard (and Birdy pretty much none).

Really hope this can somehow be a hit but not sure a January 1st OA/OS release was the best idea?
