micky blue firebird

Micky Blue is dropping the fourth single today, off her new EP Wild Things – a collection of five songs that she disaggregated and released track-by-track, building momentum and buzz along the way. “Firebird”, is a gleaming bubblegum pop gem, showcasing soaring, anthemic top lines and infectious beats. Of the track, the artist waxes personal: “Years ago a close friend gave me an out of print copy of my favorite children’s book The Firebird and other Russian Tales. Long story short I wrote Firebird for her. She is gay and struggled (like so many) with coming out and self acceptance. The story of the Firebird is a long and difficult journey trying to capture something elusive and beautiful. I think everyone has put something or someone up on a pedestal, and you let your journey get in the way of claiming your firebird which to me is self acceptance and self love.” We can’t wait to hear the follow-up fifth track from her, but in the meantime check her out below for a first listen to “Firebird”.
