product details & reviews
Following the release of her three singles ‘Skinny Love’, ‘Shelter’ and ‘People Help the People’, Birdy (AKA Jasmine Van den Bogaerde) is proud to announce her debut album.
Entitled BIRDY, the album will feature her unique interpretation of songs by Bon Iver, Cherry Ghost, Phoenix, The National, The Postal Service and The xx.
Birdy has recorded the album in the UK and US and worked with some of the best producers of the moment including Rich Costey (Muse, TV on the Radio), James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Last Shadow Puppets and Klaxons) and Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys).
Her fragile and emotive vocals have captured the hearts of some big fans in the UK media. One of her main supporters, Fearne Cotton had Birdy on to do her first live radio interview and performance on Radio 1’s Live Lounge. After her spine-tingling performances of ‘Shelter’ and her cover of Ed Sheeran’s ‘The A Team’, she was the 2nd most viewed UK musician on YouTube and she was trending on twitter. In under 6 months, she’s had more than 8 million views of her content on YouTube including 400k of her cover of ‘The A Team’ and 5 million views of ‘Skinny Love’. ‘Skinny Love’ and ‘Shelter’ have featured in an episode of ‘Vampire Diaries’ and was in the top 10 alternative chart in iTunes in the US, France and Germany.
Birdy commented, ‘'I'm so excited to be releasing my very first album. I’ve had so many amazing experiences in the past year. It has all felt like a dream come true. I just can't wait for everyone to hear it.'
