    Chirp Chrip!

    The 17-year old British singer/songwriter Birdy released the new video for her beautiful rendition of Bon Iver's "Skinny Love" from her EP Breathe. She recorded the cover a while ago but this is a new video version.

    Filmed at The Hope & Anchor Pub in Islington, U.K., Birdy is shot with just her piano and a hauntingly raw atmosphere exposing a much more mature version of herself.

    Birdy will release Fire Within, in the U.S., later this year.

    Check out the "Skinny Love" video below.



    She will also tour in April and May, opening for Christina Perri. Go see Birdy! Chirp Chirp.
