The new single sees Lowe recruit an incredible team of backing vocalists, including Jamie Woon, Jamie Lidell, Jordan Rakei, and Kwabs, with production helmed by Dave Okumu (The Invisible, Grace Jones, Jessie Ware).

Inspired by "lust and desire, but with the lingering sense of insecurity and longing", "Birdsong" was debuted last night (28 January) as Annie Mac's Hottest Record In The World, and arrives with visuals directed by Jovan Todorovic.

YU follows on from Lowe's 2016 debut record Control. She explains, "I wanted to write about my experience of sharing my life with another as a lover, friend and partner."
