Jade Bird is a British singer-songwriter whose blend of indie, folk, and country music has been captivating audiences since the release of her self-titled debut album in 2019. “Love Has All Been Done Before” is a track from that album that showcases Bird’s powerful vocals and heartfelt lyrics. The song tackles the universal theme of love and the feeling of repetition and futility that can sometimes accompany it.
The track begins with a simple guitar riff and gradually builds into an anthem of sorts, with soaring vocals and crashing drums. Bird’s lyrics capture the frustration that can come with trying to find new love in a world where everything seems to have been done before. “It’s not that love is new, it’s just the faces change,” she sings. “It’s all been done before, and I’m just bored of the game.” Despite the somewhat melancholy message, the song is ultimately uplifting and empowering, encouraging listeners to keep searching for love even when it seems like a tired and worn-out concept.
“Love Has All Been Done Before” is just one example of the powerful and introspective songwriting that Jade Bird is known for. With her distinctive voice and unique blend of genres, she continues to be an exciting and innovative force in the music world.
The song was inspired by Jade Bird’s own experiences with heartbreak and her disillusionment with love.
Jade Bird has revealed that the inspiration for “Love Has All Been Done Before” came from her experience working with a producer who seemed to rely too much on formulas and lacked a willingness to experiment and push boundaries in the studio.
