Jade Bird Announces Second Album 'Different Kinds Of Light', Shares Title Track

Thursday, 20 May 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Jade Bird has announced her second album.

The follow-up to her 2019 self-titled debut is called 'Different Kinds Of Light' and will arrive on August 13 via Glassnote Records.

Recorded with producer Dave Cobb mainly at the RCA studios in Nashville, it'll feature the pre-release singles Headstart, Houdini, and Open Up The Heavens, along with the new shared title track, a soothing composition that flows over a gentle loop of acoustic guitar and light percussion. Its accompanying video will premiere on YouTube tonight at 7pm BST. Bird said:

"'Different Kinds of Light' at its most basic is about falling in love and at its most complex, the chaos of trying to get away from your past. I’ve written about fictional characters, about myself and people who don’t exist or at least only exist in my mind, memory and imagination.

"This record started in Japan, a small getaway from a busy year. We took it to Mexico, to Nashville and to upstate New York adding pieces of songs along the way until it became the different phases of who I am, what my relationship is and what my relationship to other people has become.

"It’s been a big exploration through evenings and mornings spent under strange skies. With 'Different Kinds of Light' came different kinds of clarity in my life."

The 23-year-old will appear at various festivals across North America, Europe, and the UK this summer, including Black Deer Festival in Tunbridge Wells in June, Bingley Weekender and London's All Points East festival in August, and Moseley Folk and Arts Festival, and Neighbourhood Weekender in September.
