Critically-acclaimed British singer/songwriter Birdy has announced the release of her U.S.-only EP, BREATHE, out September 24th on Atlantic Records. BREATHE comes on the heels of Birdy’s globally successful self-titled debut album which was released in 2011. The EP features Birdy’s spine tingling rendition of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love”, a song that has been breaking the airwaves across the globe for the last few years. In addition the BREATHE EP features the recently released new track “Wings” which will also be featured on Birdy’s next full length album set for a Spring ’14 U.S. release. Since emerging onto the scene just two years ago, 17-year old Birdy (born Jasmine van den Bogaerde) has catapulted herself into a realm of pop stardom across the world and picked up many accolades along the way. Birdy’s first single, “Skinny Love” has reached 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. From performing on the likes of shows such as Conan O’Brien and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, closing Holland’s and Germany’s finale of The Voice, selling-out three nights at the Sydney Opera House to performing at London’s Paralympic Opening Ceremony, it’s safe to say that Birdy has been building her career to great heights. The singer wrote ‘Just A Game’ for the official soundtrack to box office smash The Hunger Games last year, where she worked with the legendary T Bone Burnett and also featured on the song ‘Learn Me Right’ with Mumford & Sons for the Pixar film Brave. She’s now reached over 1.1 million likes on her Facebook and over an astonishing 138 million views on her official YouTube channel. 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’. Over the past year, Birdy’s 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. Birdy is also expanding on her already amazing musical abilities by taking on the role of guitarist in both the recording sessions and live performances.
