The UK’s most exciting new pop talent – Jade Bird – has dropped her brand new single. ‘Uh Huh’ is out now on Glassnote.
If Dolly Parton had written her own version of Dua Lipa’s ‘New Rules’, it would probably have sounded like Jade Bird’s new single ‘Uh Huh’. A raw power-pop anthem from the second it begins, listeners are thrown into the heart of the chaos as a fierce Jade Bird imparts some tough love and important relationship advice to a man potentially blinded by lust.
‘Uh Huh’ marks another cornerstone of Jade Bird’s thrilling ascent. In the time since her arrival last year with debut EP ‘Something American’, the world has opened its arms to the 20 year old pop singer-songwriter. Not only has she toured profusely across the globe playing packed-out shows in all corners, supported First Aid Kit across North America, but she’s performed her breakthrough single ‘Lottery’ on Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and most recently the UK’s Later…With Jools Holland too. Along the way, she’s found adoring fans and connected with captivated audiences wherever she goes.
All the while, she’s been writing new music and working on her very own debut album. By self-admission, she’s setting her bar high and learning from some current icons that have proved the hugely inspiring over the last few years – Alanis Morisette, Alvvays, Christine & The Queens and HAIM to name just a few. Jade Bird is one of the most refreshing pop prospects we’ve seen in a long time; a prolific writer of intelligent but equally catchy songs that address themes that others are less brave too – disillusionment, divorce, cheating, sorrow – all twisted into the realities of an independent-minded, modern British female voice.
In November, Jade will once again hit the road, this time on her biggest ever UK headline tour to date – an 11-stop run taking in all the major cities including a stop-off in London on the 21st November at Brixton Electric. Full UK dates below.
