He released his fourth studio album, ‘Birdy’ in June via Mas Pam Records. The album’s title track notably drew accusations of plagiarism over the song’s original lyrics, which contained notable similarities to Charles Bukowski’s poem “The Bluebird”. Pamungkas later released a new version of ‘Birdy’ featuring reworked lyrics that distanced the song from Bukowski’s poem, but did not offer any further explanation.

The 11-track album also featured the previously released singles ‘Please Baby Please’‘Trust Me With This (Mama)’ and ‘Happy Birthday To You’.

‘Birdy’ a two-star review from NME‘s Daniel Peters, who wrote that while “Pamungkas’ vulnerability is occasionally moving,” the album ultimately chooses to wallow in melancholy instead of ever ‘taking off’ like a titular bird. “Birdy,” he wrote, “wearies the listener by reexamining, yet again, personal faults and desires.”
