Birdy to Light Up America With "FIRE WITHIN"; US Edition of Internationally Acclaimed Album Includes Worldwide Hit Singles, "Skinny Love" and "People Help The People"; "FIRE WITHIN" Arrives on June 3rd

Birdy Also to Release 3 New Songs on The Fault in Our Stars -- Music From the Motion Picture Soundtrack out May 19th

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.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.
