Jade Bird is the latest artist to take part in our Live From Home series, where she performed a raucous rendition of her gritty new single, “Open Up The Heavens.”
The stunning performance sees Bird and her backing band delving into the catchy, rock-driven energy of the track from inside of an expansive studio. Bird’s vocals take the lead on this rendition, as she delivers lines like, “Do you really know/ What it feels like/ Ending up alone/ In the middle of the night.”
“‘Open Up The Heavens’ was written and recorded two days before I had to fly home from recording in Nashville,” Bird explained upon the track’s release last week. “I’d heard stories about the last song you write for a record being the best, so I was searching for that in the vocal booth of RCA that evening. Halfway into the riff Dave (Cobb) pops his head in and says ‘You should really do something with that.’ So I did. I sent the song to him two hours later and before I knew it, everyone was brought back in and we were tracking my favourite song on the record.”
