In one of the most exciting music collaborations of 2021 so far, the latest single and clip from Birdz, featuring multi-award winning artist Ngaiire, is an empowering display of humanity.

Melbourne based hip-hop artist Birdz, who was recently named MTV‘s ‘Indigenous Artist Of The Moment’, premiered ‘Fly’ on triple j drive and it was instantly added to full rotation.

The love for the song has only grown since. It’s been added to double j, 2SER, Triple R, SYN FM, 4ZZZ, Edge Radio and PBS, and playlisted on Spotify’s New Music Friday, The Local List, The Drip, Deadly Beats and Apple Music’s New Music Daily, Best New Songs, First, The New Australia, New Fire, Vibes and Alt Rap.

The visual, an uplifting and cinematic display, was directed by Josh Lee from Sonder Films and filmed in Sydney.

“We went with strong performance shots revolving around golden light, showcasing the beauty and strength that these individuals (specifically focusing on Indigenous Australians) have within themselves,” said Josh Lee.

‘Fly’ was one of the first songs Birdz wrote for his upcoming second album project, set for release later this year. The record will follow his critically acclaimed award-winning debut album Train Of Thought (2017) and his 2019 EP release, Place of Dreams.
