20 year-old Jade Bird returns with the punchy new single "I Get No Joy", taken from her upcoming self-titled debut album.

"I Get No Joy" is the first single to land after Jade Bird announced her debut album.

Expanding on the track, Bird explains, "This song is about the stream of thought that runs through your head at all times as an over thinker. It’s about how that gets in the way of being present in the moment and ultimately "getting no joy" and about the frustration of everyone’s cliche of happiness not making you feel fulfilled either."

"I Get No Joy" follows on from Jade Bird's 2018 singles "Uh Huh", "Lottery", and "Love Has All Been Done Before", all of which feature on her forthcoming debut record.

Explaining more about her debut record, Jade Bird says, "This album is my experience, direct and undiluted, of the past two years. Every decision I’ve made has culminated into this magical process, just as every word I’ve written has spun into these songs. It changes in style, like most of my music, and tries to dodge boxes and genres but the consistency is me - a young woman really trying to figure it out.”

"I Get No Joy" is out now. Jade Bird lands on 19 April via Glassnote, and is available to pre-order now.
