Jade Bird has dropped a brand new single, ‘Now Is The Time’.
Premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show as her Hottest Record last night, it’s the latest taster from her forthcoming second album ‘Different Kinds of Light’, which is set for release on 13th August.
“’Now is the Time’ is the only song to have me smiling and laughing listening to it back in RCA,” she explains. “We had the Bee Gee’s in mind and soul, triple tracking the vocals and putting a load of chorus on the guitar. I wrote it at the foot of our hotel bed in Mexico City, it’s a big motivational anthem for someone I want to put my arms around or lift them in the darkest time. Given that I wrote it mid pandemic, the sentiment to getting to the backend of this hell is heavily felt now, when I play it live and do a two step with my bass player!!!”
The track follows up on the previously revealed ‘Headstart’ and ‘Houdini’ – revealed at the back end of 2020 – as well as the record’s title-track, which was debuted last month.
