Birdy has wisely chosen Ryan Tedder-penned/produced “Words As Weapons” as the next single from sophomore set Fire Within. (At least internationally, it still hasn’t been released stateside). The cutting folk-pop song is one of the most immediate tracks on the Brit’s album and serves (surprisingly bitter) lyrics that most of us can identify with.
The 17-year-old really steps out of her comfort zone in the eerie video. The typically ethereal diva plays a ghost, who dedicates her time to haunting an ex-boyfriend. At first, she just kind of stands around looking deathly pale but things take a turn towards The Conjuring when the “Skinny Love” songstress starts messing with her former flame’s head. Watch up top.
Is this Birdy’s best video? Let us know in the comments below.
