Today, Birdy reveals her new EP Piano Sketches via Atlantic Records. Featuring recently released tracks “If This Is it Now,” “Island Lights” and “Open Your Heart,” the EP showcases the maturity, honesty, and clarity of Birdy’s beautiful vocals. Lyrically, the EP is undoubtedly Birdy’s most heartfelt yet, featuring her stunningly poetic perspective on growing up, moving on from love lost, and learning to find independence—paired with Birdy’s own hand-drawn and painted artwork.
Speaking on the EP, she stated, “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.” She continued, “the stories are about heartbreak, being far from home and moving on.”
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. Check out the project below.
