This is going to be huge.

It's like Leona does Coldplay. She's got such a beautiful voice and I can't wait to hear the rest of the album now she's doing all original material!

A massive talent. And the record company are clearly giving her a massive push by getting people like Ryan Tedder in to co-write. Having said that, my guess is he had an input here because it does sound very similar to Stop and Stare. I really hope she doesn't lose her 'quirkiness' in the quest for global success.

Her cover of Comforting Sounds was dreadful. Took something wonderful and completely destroyed it.

I think her cover of Shelter is soo much better than Skinny Love. It's so haunting and beautiful!

Apart from the singles and Without a word, her album was poorly produced and her vocals became lost in the production. That's why i reckon she never hit the ground running. It's a shame because she has one of the most haunting voices I have heard from a female in a long time.

I always felt she could become huge with her second album and this new song is very promising. It's very Oasis-esque in the production.

For some reason, i could see this song being played in a scene of The Vampire Diaries

She's already had a song played in The Vampire Diaries (i think it was Skinny Love). But i hope you are right because she deserves to be huge imo.

Skinny Love and Shelter were both played on The Vampire diaries and one of them even got a play on Grey's anatomy.

Imo, Birdy has probably had a lot of weight on her shoulders with this single (and a second album) because it's gonna be original material. I can honestly say this song is incredible! I really hope it does well for her because it has 'hit' written all over it! Far superior to the stuff from her debut.

Love the video

Very nice indeed. Jasmine was made for playing the piano - not only is her mom a concert pianist but she has possibly the longest fingers I've ever seen

PS Is that Native Roses (her brother's band) backing her here?

Definitely my song of the moment - she should hold the fort nicely whilst Florence is on a break (even down to the dressing in expensive old fashioned costume and having a party in a rural area video!)

It's going to go top 20 - but probably too AOR to be a massive hit.
