Shares new live video for ‘What Am I Here For’
New EP ‘Something American’ out now
“She possesses a crystalline soprano so pure that it calls to mind bubbling spring water and untouched snowfall” Pitchfork
Today, Jade Bird shares the second live video from her brand new EP, this time for ‘What Am I Here For’.
Following in the footsteps of the recently shared live video for ‘Cathedral’, the new video carries on Jade Bird story perfectly. This time, she is performing ‘What Am I Here For’ – one of the EP’s most poignant and heartrending tracks – a fragile and tender call for someone who you can trust and find your place in the world alongside.
Watch the live video
Jade’s extraordinarily accomplished debut EP –‘Something American’ – has been receiving critical acclaim of the highest order all around the globe. Across the 5 tracks, her voice has arrived like a total breath of fresh air in the current musical landscape – putting her own positive, refreshing spin on a richly complex personal and musical heritage. Within the EP, Jade manages to twist huge themes including disillusionment, divorce, cheating and sorrow into the realities of an independent-minded modern British teenager.
Produced by Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes etc), the EP was recorded at Clubhouse Studio in Rhinebeck, NY and features Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, St Vincent) on drums, Will Rees (Mystery Jets) on guitar and Sara Lee (B-52’s) on bass. Listen to the full EP on Spotify HERE
