Listen: Jade Bird releases new breakup track ‘Houdini’

Her sophomore album is set for release next year

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.”
