Birdy is back! Today – 3rd March 2023 – Birdy releases her bold and striking new single, ‘Raincatchers’, out via Warner Music. If you think you know Birdy, think again. The track – undoubtedly her most exciting and unforgettable to date – is the first release taken from her upcoming new album, Portraits, out on 14th July 2023. ‘Raincatchers’ is accompanied by a new music video which is available to watch below.
On ‘Raincatchers’, Birdy shifts from her customary stripped-back motifs and moves to an 80s influenced aesthetic laden with polished and gleaming alt-pop overtones.
In her most confident album yet, Portraits sees Birdy take a liberated leap into the unknown, her timeless songwriting style now infused with a fresh, exuberant rush of energy. It’s the sound of a true creative stepping into a new world and finding her true voice.
At the end of March, Birdy will embark on a European tour which includes what will be a standout date at London’s Eventim Apollo on Sunday 23rd April.
Birdy will also be playing a show at Annabel’s, London, on 8th March as a part of International Women’s Day.

My life is a soundtrack, i track my life through music, photography is my passion, my escape, my expression. Without both i have pieces missing, thankfully i’m blessed and get to combine both.
Born in Manchester, lived in Australia for 22 years where i was heavily involved in the Australian Music Industry, firstly in bands (Singer) and then managing bands (all original), I moved back to the UK, Wales specifically 10 years ago and married my childhood sweetheart and life is good.
