‘Fire Within’ is the second studio album release from Birdy and features the #1 smash hit ‘Wings’. Over the past year, Birdy has been in the studio collaborating with some of the biggest names in the business including Ryan Tedder (Beyonce), Dan Wilson (co-wrote and produced ‘Someone Like You’ for Adele), Rich Costey (Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Sigur Ros) and Ben Lovett from Mumford & Sons, whom she’s collaborated with in the past. She has also worked with some amazing musicians including Rage Against the Machine bass player Timmy C and Paul Jackson Jnr and Omar Hakim (Daft Punk’s band on latest album Random Access Memories). The album also sees Birdy expanding on her already amazing musical abilities by taking on the role of guitarist in both the recording sessions and live performances.
Since emerging onto the scene in 2011, Birdy has catapulted herself into a realm of pop stardom across the world and picked up many accolades along the way. Take her debut single: a spine-tingling rendition of Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love’; a song that has been breaking the airwaves across the world for a couple of years and safely placed Birdy amongst some of the UK’s most important singer/songwriters of our present time. The track proved to be a huge success around the world, reaching gold certification in the UK and Ireland, platinum certification in Belgium, France and Switzerland, triple platinum in Holland and a ground-breaking five times platinum in Australia. Her follow-up singles ‘People Help The People’ and ‘1901’ again followed suit, selling hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide.
Birdy’s self-titled, UK gold-certified debut album shot straight to #1 in Australia, Belgium, Holland and France upon its release in 2011 and debuted in the Official Top 20 in the UK. The album featured her unique interpretations of songs by much-loved artists of the singer such as Bon Iver, Cherry Ghost, Phoenix, The National and The xx. The album also featured one of Birdy’s self-penned songs ‘Without A Word’. With the huge success, the acclaim rolled in with Uncut stating Birdy was ‘a talent to be reckoned with,’ while The Observer said ‘her voice blooms from fragility into something spine-tingingly plangent.’
