Release Due 30th April
Young Heart is the fourth studio album from Jasmine van den Bogaerde aka Birdy. Following a half-decade hiatus that saw her essentially rediscover her artistic muse and re-energise, the new album is a world away from the dreamy folk that characterised her first three albums. It’s earthy and powerful, stripped of the showy theatrics of 2015’s Beautiful Lies.
Birdy says: “I’m so proud of this album, my last record was a lot more theatrical – there was a lot going on, it was a big production. Whereas this is quite stripped back - anything that didn’t need to be there, isn’t. There’s no decoration. This album just feels very personal – I’ve grown up a lot over the past five years and have experienced new things that have shaped my understanding of the world, but also of who I am as an artist. This album means a lot to me - I want to protect it.”
