NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/14 -- Atlantic recording artist Birdy has announced details of her much-anticipated full-length US debut album. "FIRE WITHIN" -- which includes the hit single, "Skinny Love" -- arrives on June 3rd.
Released last year to great acclaim in Birdy's native England, "FIRE WITHIN" sees the talented singer/songwriter furthering her distinctive songwriting in collaboration with some of today's most talented studio superstars, including Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic, Adele, One Direction), Dan Wilson (Taylor Swift, Pink, Adele), Sia and Mumford & Sons' Ben Lovett. What's more, the new US edition of "FIRE WITHIN" has been amended to further include the smash single, "People Help The People," as well as her worldwide hit rendition of Bon Iver's "Skinny Love," which topped charts around the planet upon its initial 2011 arrival (see tracklisting below).
In addition Birdy has recorded three new tracks for the highly anticipated soundtrack to the 20th Century Fox film, The Fault in Our Stars. The Fault in Our Stars -- Music From the Motion Picture soundtrack will be released on May 19th while the film based on John Greene's #1 bestseller will be out on June 6th. The soundtrack is currently available for pre-order at iTunes. All pre-orders will received an instant grat track of "Not About Angels" which can be heard here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9gmhxv_ny0.
Currently showcased among the rising stars included in Gap's Spring 2014 "Lived In" global marketing campaign, Birdy will celebrate the domestic release of "FIRE WITHIN" by joining fellow Atlantic recording artist Christina Perri as special guest on her eagerly anticipated North American tour. The dates -- many of which are long sold out -- are underway and continue through late May (see itinerary below). For up-to-the-minute details, please visit officialbirdy.com/live.htm.
A remarkably powerful and charismatic live performer, Birdy recently performed "Skinny Love" live on the nationally syndicated Queen Latifah Show, on Wednesday, April 2nd. The appearance continues a series of high profile TV performances for Birdy, including a recent show-stopping visit to NBC's TODAY.
Birdy -- who recently earned a BRIT Awards 2014 nomination in the "British Female Solo Artist" category -- made her long anticipated US debut late last year with the extraordinary "BREATHE" EP. In addition to songs such as the new album's "Wings," the EP was accompanied by a stunning new companion video for "Skinny Love." The clip -- directed by Sophie Muller (Rihanna, Beyoncé, Lana Del Rey) -- is streaming now alongside an array of other videos and live performances at Birdy's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/OfficialBirdy.
Known to friends and family as Jasmine van den Bogaerde, Birdy has been widely acclaimed as one the most gifted young singer/songwriters in modern pop. The soon-to-be 18-year-old artist proved an international sensation from the start as her eponymous 2011 debut album made a top 20 debut in her native UK while shooting straight to #1 in Australia, Belgium, France, and the Netherlands. Singles such as "People Help The People," "Shelter," and "1901" were equally successful, scoring gold and platinum certifications in such countries as the UK, Ireland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Australia (where "Skinny Love" was a chart-topping, 5x-platinum certified sensation).
As if that weren't enough, Birdy's songs have also been highlighted in a number of other high profile film blockbusters, including "Just A Game" (found on 2012's #1 smash, "THE HUNGER GAMES: SONGS FROM DISTRICT 12 AND BEYOND") and "Learn Me Right," the GRAMMY®-nominated collaboration with Mumford & Sons featured on Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios' Brave.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

Building a cross-cloud operational model can be a daunting task.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Wolf, VP & Chief Technology Officer, Global Field & Industry at VMware, will discuss how successful organizations approach cloud operations and management, with insights into where operations should be centralized and when it’s best to decentraliz...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
