As you know, I'm obsessed with Birdy and her music, having her songs on repeat on my iPod at home and in my car.  It seems like I hear her everywhere now, thinking it has become part of my subconscious, seeping out of my pores.  So when I heard a faint melody on my television one night while doing chores, I'd imagine I was once again humming in my mind one of Birdy's songs.  But this time, the melody was too focused to be part of my imagination.  That's when I turned to the television and saw the trailer for the Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin film "Labor Day." And it featured none other that Birdy's "Wings" off her sophomore album Fire Within. Just for including that song alone will make me watch the flick when it hits theater's January 31st.. 

"Wings" is becoming a favorite song for movie studios to use in their movie trailers.  Recently, it was also featured on the trailer for "Winter's Tale" starring Colin Farrell, Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly. 

2014 is shaping up to be a breakout year for Birdy. Her second studio album Fire Within gets its U.S. release sometime this year.   She recently got nominated for Best British Female Solo Artist at The BRIT Awards which takes place February 19th at London's O2 Arena and it was recently announced that she will be touring with Christina Perri on her North American tour starting this April.  

 Check out both trailers below.
