New Single: Birdy – ‘Keeping Your Head Up’
Has 2016’s first truly solid pop song emerged? UK indie pop star is ready to drop her third album, ‘Beautiful Lies’ in March and it sounds like she’s got quite the record prepared for us judging by the first single, ‘Keeping Your Head Up’.
Admittedly we slept on this track for a while, but don’t make the same mistake we did. Everything works hand in hand (the simple lyrics, the beautifully flowing melody, the thunderous drums) to give Birdy something bigger compared to some of the other music she’s released. Even she seems to think she’s tapped into something special.
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..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…
Yes, we’ve had our fill of empowerment anthems over the past five years; but there’s something authentic about this one that makes it stand out against the other dribble that we’re usually given.
Is ‘Keeping Your Head Up’ one of your top songs of 2016 so far?
