- Jade Byrd didn’t want to make a country album.
The Austin-based singer-songwriter, Jade Byrd, who is known for his big voice and boisterous American-pop tunes, is looking to follow up his eponymous project in 2019 with a collection that feels like it’s grown. However, he also wanted to preserve his roots. “I’m an English girl,” Bird told MTV News. “I’m in the country, but I don’t think the songs I write are all country.”
What happened following challenges that view. At the legendary RCA Studios in Nashville, he booked time with producer Dave Cobb, best known for his Grammy-winning work with Chris Stapleton and Brandi Carlisle and the soundtrack to A Star Is Born. All things are geared towards country albums.
And then I got there, and I started to realize that Dave was in a Britpop band as a kid!” Bird said and referred to Cobb’s tenure with The Tender Idols in the 1990s. “Elizabeth Fraser is mentioned in the [Cocteau Twins], and even Iggy Pop is mentioned once, even though she’s not British. The weirdest and weirdest reference about the Bee Gees.
Jade Byrd fear is like – it’s not even worth it.”
The result of the energetic collaboration between Bird and Cobb is Different Kinds of Light, Bird’s second incandescent album to be released tomorrow (August 13): it is a Britpop album, formed by trademark Americana. The combo immediately resulted in a captivating collection that only shone warmer in its 43 minutes.
Bird, 23, has embraced South American music’s soulful and fundamental elements since his early days, unabashedly leading him to embrace the embrace of British melodies for a return of bold new form and direction. This stems from years of global patronage, the kind of agility that eventually turned them into this scholarship for just over two weeks.
Jade Byrd knew he needed a more holistic approach to album 2.
So he returned to the Catskills in early 2020. Felice’s Barn, where he wrote several brilliant singles (“The Lottery,” “Love Was Done and Before”) only to find that he had changed it. and can no longer be used as a place to write. “I was scared because I thought I needed this Barn. I needed this Barn. And he said, ‘No, you superstitious freak.’ “And he’s right,” Byrd said. He improvised. “I just found a shed down the road and ended up writing some of my favorite songs.”
