Jade Bird has taken part in our new recurring Live From Home series, where she performed her recent single “Headstart.”
Bird delivers an entirely acoustic session, performing outside with a guitar in hand as cars pass by in the background. Her powerhouse vocal lines truly take the lead on this session, as she delivers lines like, “Why’s it so hard?/ Why’s it so hard?/ I’ve given you a headstart.”
“‘Headstart’ came out of a trip I made to upstate New York at the beginning of the year,” Bird explains. “It’s quite a light-hearted song, about liking someone who just can’t see the signs, and releasing it feels like community to me, and it makes me want to sing again.”
