Description

    This special re-release of her debut self-titled 'Birdy'; features 2 extra tracks including the song she wrote for the The Hunger Games film - 'Just A Game' and for Australian audiences only, an exclusive cover of the John Butler Trio's track - 'What You Want.'

    The word 'special' gets bandied about so carelessly that we no longer hear it, but then every so often something comes along to give it new meaning. Something like Birdy. It's hard to believe that such a pure, powerful voice can come from such a tiny frame, or that such raw, deep emotion can be expressed by someone so young. But mainly, what all these new fans recognise is an artist who can take even a familiar song and make it completely her own. Birdy's self-titled debut is a collection of covers; this is what Birdy has said about the process, "Choosing songs for the album has been fun, she says, but also hard work. I'd listen to them, and then decide which ones I'd try out. Usually I just sit at the piano and work out an arrangement that feels like it's my style, then I'll work with the voice. And from that, I'd choose which ones I thought would be good for the album." The album features Birdy's soulful and sophisticated take on songs by Bon Iver (first single "Skinny Love"), The xx, Fleet Foxes, The National, Phoenix and The Postal Service.
