Azniv Korkejian, aka Bedouine, has announced her second album Bird Songs of a Killjoy with the lead offering, "Bird".
On the new single, Korkeijan says, ""Bird" is about loving someone so much that you’re willing to loosen your grip on them. It was written as a love letter with the intent of delivering it. It’s one of my favorite memories regarding the power of song. I had so much to communicate and this was the only way I was able to get it all down. I drafted it on my recorder and emailed it that evening. The next morning there was a freshly written song in response to mine in my inbox. I was totally astonished by this perfect exchange. It seemed to prove that sometimes when you’re willing to let something go is when you’re given it entirely."
Bird Songs of a Killjoy follows on from her self-titled 2017 debut record, and sees her reunite with producer Gus Seyffert.
Expanding on the new album, Bedouine explains, "It's called Bird Songs of a Killjoy, and I'm the killjoy. Dare I say – a difficult woman. I'm taking ownership of that stereotype, proudly."
