We can’t begin to speculate over the reasons why, but it would appear that UK songstress Birdy has had her wings clipped.
The starlet rose to fame across the globe via her breakout smash – the cover of Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love’ – and its follow-up ‘People Help The People’. She garnered international acclaim and achieved multi-platinum success across the globe; success that translated to platinum local sales for her self-titled debut.
But the notoriously difficult sophomore album ‘Fire Within’, released at the end of last year, failed to fire; a result that would no doubt be disappointing to both the songstress herself and her label. Only lead single ‘Wings’ has achieved any sort of chart love.
‘Words As Weapons’ has the arsenal to get Birdy back onto the radio… it’s upbeat and friendly. But the clip might make you never look at Birdy in the same way again.
She’s going to do a great job of haunting your dreams.
