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.”
