Jade Bird – Lottery
“Lottery” follows the 2017 release of Bird’s debut EP, Something American — an aptly titled release, as Bird’s material often finds its way into the Americana vein of music popularized across the pond, with Loretta Lynn one of her many obvious touchstones. Bird says “Lottery” was produced with the same group (Simone Felice and David Baron) that helmed Something American and that she’s soon looking to “release an album, which I’ve got a concept for,” in the near future.
The song, which received early airplay on multiple Triple A radio stations in the United States upon its Jan. 11 release, led by Sirius XM Radio’s The Spectrum station. It’s not Bird’s first foray onto American radio; Something American‘s “Cathedral” also received some airplay across the U.S. Appreciative of the support so far, Bird chalks her early success up in part to her material being “honest, and the common thread through it is very much being who I am: kind of a young, ballsy teenager who wants to do something a little bit differently.”
