While gearing up for the release of her sophomore album, which is set for release next year, Jade Bird has shared a new breakup song called “Houdini.”
The new track sees Bird using magician and illusionist Harry Houdini’s name as a metaphor to reflect on someone leaving from her life. As the track progresses, Bird reveals that she always knew they would leave without a reason.
“I’ve loved the word/concept for a really long time,” Bird explains. “All of a sudden, it seemed to be the perfect metaphor for the figures who had left my life in the past. I had no control or choice on their appearances and disappearances – sort of like the man himself.”
