Beautiful Birds feat. BIRDY – Official Video

March 5, 2017

hey everyone ,

hope this finds you well ….

i just landed in PHILADELPHIA and I’m hugely looking forward to getting going with the NORTH AMERICAN tour 🙂 half of the shows are now sold out and most of the others are getting really close … head over to to get yours !

for now though , something a bit special …. we’ve been working on this over the last few months and I’m delighted to finally be able to share it with you .

as soon as i wrote “beautiful birds” i felt like it would work really well as a male / female duet . i also kept on picturing an animated video for it . I’m so delighted that both ideas were able to come to fruition and i couldn’t be happier with how they have turned out .

massive thanks to the wonderful BIRDY for finding time to sing on this song . such an amazing talent and so easy and lovely to work with too .

a huge thanks also to Jess Cope, Adam Oehlers, Luke Simpson and Partizan for their incredible patience and for working so hard to make this video what it is .

please do share this video if you can – its something that we’re all really proud of and would obviously love for it to reach as many people as possible .

thanks so much for watching .
