Jade Bird's latest single Open up the Heavens is an absolute banger and it's even better live.

The singer-songwriter first unveiled the energetic track, which is our Radio X Record Of The Week, back in February and the following month shared a video of her performing the tune in Nashville's RCA studios.

Open up the Heavens marks Jade Bird's first official release since her self-titled debut album in 2019, which included the likes of I Get No Joy, Uh Huh and Love Has All Been Done Before.

Listen to the official audio for the track here:

Jade has been busily working on her follow-up album and revealed she shot the artwork for it just last month.

Taking to Twitter, she shared behind the scenes snaps from the shoot and wrote: "We just shot the album cover, and though it’ll be awhile before you see it. Here are the incredible people that made it happen".

She added: "I can’t describe how many of my visions and creative dreams have been realised on this record, It’ll be worth the wait tenfold..."
