February 7, 2020 (Los Angeles, CA) – Pop superstar Anne-Marie returns with her brand-new single and video “Birthday,” available today via Warner Records. Listen/Watch HERE.
“Birthday” is an assured slice of empowering pop that exudes Anne-Marie’s much-loved mischievous personality and renowned vocals. Her first musical release in a little over a year, the global star – who has now amassed over 11 billion streams, co-wrote the birthday anthem with Delacey (Halsey, Demi Lovato, Chainsmokers) and Oak (Rihanna, Lizzo, Ariana Grande), with the latter also lending his name to production.
The accompanying official video – a modern-day nod to Cinderella – is directed by Hannah Lux Davis (Ariana Grande, Halsey, Miley Cyrus) with creative direction from Kate Moross (Spice Girls, Sam Smith). A wonderfully shot, playful visual, the video sees Anne-Marie celebrating her birthday like a princess, complete with a lavish, show-stealing ball gown and dancing in a huge, opulent drawing room. But at the stroke of midnight, she finds herself back in more modest surroundings at home, celebrating with her friends.
Anne-Marie has proven to be one of the most exciting, dynamic and successful British breakthrough popstars of recent years. A former 3x world karate champion and West End child star, Anne-Marie’s rise has been nothing short of meteoric. She was featured on Clean Bandit’s 2017 5x-platinum, Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit “Rockabye” and released her debut album Speak Your Mind in 2018, which is approaching platinum status in the U.S. Rolling Stone described the album as “packed with sensitively swagged-out dance pop…” and Paper Magazine exclaimed it “has fierce, four-to-the-floor bangers…,” Speak Your Mind was the UK’s biggest-selling debut of the 2018 and has earned 1x-Diamond, 8x-platinum and 7x-Gold certifications, worldwide. The album spawned massive hits including the platinum single “2002” feat. Ed Sheeran and 2x-platinum smash “FRIENDS” with Marshmello which hit #2 on the U.S. Top 40 radio charts.
Anne-Marie has countless global award nominations including 9 BRIT Awards, 3 MTV Europe Music Awards, 2 Teen Choice Awards, 2 iHeart Radio Music Awards and a Billboard Music Award. She sold out a worldwide headline tour and played stadiums supporting long-time friend and champion Ed Sheeran. With her sophomore album on the way, 2020 is primed to be Anne-Marie’s biggest year yet!
