Birdy + the Mumfords = awesome!
"Learn Me Right" - an original song featuring British-born singer and songwriter Birdy- will be featured on the upcoming soundtrack to the animated Disney*Pixar film Brave, which will be released by Walt Disney Records on June 19. That's tomorrow. The track was written, arranged and produced by Grammy-nominated British folk-rock group Mumford & Sons.
"We liked the idea of having a girl like Birdy sing," says the group's leader Marcus Mumford. It's been quite liberating." Adds Birdy: "I love it because it tells a story. Although it has a lot of emotion, it's also very upbeat and you want to dance to it, which is why it works so well." The song can be heard during the epilogue to the film, which hits theaters on June 22.
Also in August, Birdy will return to the U.S. for three special shows, including an appearance at the Outside Lands festival in San Francisco on Aug. 12. She will also perform at the Roxy in Los Angeles on Aug. 13 and at Joe's Pub in New York City on Aug. 15.
