All About You

Album: Fire Within (2013)
  • Birdy penned this song with Dan Wilson, who also co-wrote and produced "Someone Like You" for Adele. It is one of several heartfelt love songs on Fire Within.

    You magazine asked the teenage singer if she was inspired to write them by anything in her own romantic past, or even present? She replied: "I am so busy with my music that I don't have time for boyfriends. I think it would be unfair if I was in a relationship so I guess I will have to wait a while."
  • Birdy told Coup De Main magazine that this is her favorite song on Fire Within, as "it is the first one I wrote on my Tenor guitar, and yeah it just means a lot."
