Jade Bird announces second album with title-track "Different Kinds of Light"

Jade Bird has returned with the announcement of her sophomore album Different Kinds of Light, and has unveiled the title-track to accompany the news.

After teasing her second album title in a clip posted to socials earlier this week, Jade Bird has officially announced Different Kinds of Light, as well as sharing the album's title-track.

The track will feature on Bird's new album alongside February's "Open up the heavens", and last year's"Houdini" and "Headstart" singles.

Different Kinds of Light will follow Bird's 2019 self-titled debut, and was largely recorded at Nashville's RCA studios with producer Dave Cobb (John Prine, Lady Gaga).

Bird says of the album, "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," Bird continues. "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."

She adds, "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."
