Written and produced independently during her time away from the spotlight, ‘Piano Sketches’ offers fans a 4 track reintroduction to Birdy’s incredible talent and artistic growth since 2016’s critically acclaimed album ‘Beautiful Lies’. Now aged 24, the multi-platinum, internationally acclaimed, Brit and Grammy nominated artist also recently announced her highly anticipated new album for 2021, details will be announced in due course.
Birdy says“I’ve been away for a while so I wanted to put something out before the album for the fans who’ve been patiently waiting for new music. As well as writing I’ve always loved drawing and painting, the EP is called ‘Piano Sketches’ because the songs are recorded as raw acoustic performances and I made little pieces of art to go alongside each one. The stories are about heartbreak, being far from home and moving on.”
In addition to Piano Sketches, Birdy proudly presents a livestream performance on Tuesday 10th November - an intimate performance via a private YouTube Premiere of four tracks filmed at her home. The setlist will include special first performances of EP tracks, plus two tracks most requested by fans on socials.
