In 2023, Birdy released her new studio album Portraits – a new chapter and a confident change of direction for an artist who has achieved an incredible amount since the release of her debut album Birdy. It is undoubtedly her most confident album to date, on which she takes a liberated leap into the unknown. Her timeless songwriting style is now infused with a fresh, exuberant energy and original, quirky production. It’s the sound of a creative person stepping into a new world and finding her true voice in the process. To date, ‘Portraits’ has reached a top 20 position in the UK charts and has been streamed 21 million times worldwide. It has also achieved immense critical and commercial success, with The Guardian calling it an “…irresistibly melodic 80s nostalgia trip” in a 4-star review.
