Song of the Day – 11/11/11 – Birdy

Seeing that it’s 11/11/11, I should probably post something about it being Veterans Day, or even Nigel Tunfel Day, right? Wrong. Today is Birdy Day.

Birdy, otherwise known as Jasmine Van den Bogarde, is a 15-year-old (yes, 15) British songbird who was originally discovered when she won the Open Mic UK competition when she was 12. What the hell were YOU doing when you were 12?

Anyways, her first album is now out, and it’s filled with cover songs by original artists like The National, Phoenix, The XX, and of course, Bon Iver. I tried to buy the whole album last night from iTunes, but it’s only on sale in the UK Store right now. Psh.

Prepare to have your mind ripped in half. It may have been the red wine, but the first time I heard this, I almost cried.
