“She’s cheaper than a dollar-store version of me,” Jade Bird rails on the R&B-flavored “Good Woman,” from her 2017 debut EP, Something American. On the record, as well as on the three singles she’s released this year, the British singer charts all the ways love can go wrong. On “Furious,” Bird asks a cheating lover, “When was the turning point when you put out your joint and you laid her down?” On the stormy, acoustic guitar–driven “Uh Huh,” she complains about a romantic rival, “She’s got you on your knees like a little boy.” Bird is more ruefully contemplative on “Lottery” even as she realizes that love is ultimately just a gamble. The 20-year-old vocalist’s country-pop originals have a simple, appealing charm, but Bird hints at greater emotional heft on her stark, solo-piano arrangement of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.”
