The album will feature 16 songs including “Voyager”, “Loneliness”, “The Otherside” and “Surrender”.
For this album, she worked with producers Ian Fitchuk and Daniel Tashian. The taping took place in Nashville and ended just before the pandemic hit us in March 2020.

Some of the changes were made in a temporary studio at his home in New Forest.
Birdy performed on April 15 in a live broadcast concert at Wilton’s Music hall in London accompanied by a band including eight string players, a clarinetist and a French horn player. The show was shot by director Ed Coleman. The performance was rated four out of five stars by iNews and called “a masterful livestream, full of gorgeous noise”. On April 30, coinciding with the release of the album, Birdy hosted an album launch party on YouTube.
