Birdy has released one of the best pop songs we've heard all year with her current single 'Keeping Your Head Up', which is A-listed on Radio 1. Today she has released a video to accompany it, which you can watch below.

The stunning new video appears to enter Birdy's fantastical dream world as a host of unusual characters, dressed in masks dance around her - it's a strong visual accompaniment to her best song to date .

'Keeping Your Head Up' was performed at the BRIT's launch party earlier this month. It serves as a welcome introduction to to her forthcoming album, Beautiful Lies, which will be released on 25 March. As well as writing all the songs on the album, she co-produced six of the tracks. Producing credits go to Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys/Adele) and MyRiot (London Grammar) while mixing duties were taken on by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire/Florence and the Machine).

Discussing the album, Birdy said; “This is my coming of age record. I’ve learned so much in the last few years and have been able to use the many experiences – good and bad - as inspiration when writing this album. This is the album that I’ve been able to steer most confidently and proudly, from the writing to the production to the artwork. A lot of the album is about finding light in the dark and overcoming the times when we feel completely lost.”

Birdy will play a special intimate show at London’s Oslo on February 9th – the show sold out in under two minutes.

The track listing for the album is:
