German-based Singer-Songwriter M. Byrd Unveils Reimagined Version of “Seed (In Bloom)” feat. Philine Sonny

July 21, 2023 BY Jason Currell

German-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer M. Byrd releases an enchanting, reimagined version of “Seed (In Bloom).” The extended version of the song, previously released on his debut album The Seed, was conceived in Castelbuono, Sicily and features delicate vocals from Philine Sonny and additional soundscapes by German indietronic artist orbit. Listen HERE

“After the original version of ‘Seed’ was more of an intro to the album, I wanted to work on a longer version of it. I wanted to use the simplistic approach and structure of the song as an experiment to remotely work with people I very much appreciate and encourage them to find their space in the music and elevate the song. It feels good to see that there is a community that is starting to build around the album and the music we make and I am so excited to further grow it with Philine and Marcel,” shares M. Byrd. 

Byrd unearths universality from intensely personal songwriting. In 2020, he turned heads with the single “Mountain”, followed by “Morning Sun”, gaining millions of streams and praise from Ones To Watch, Earmilk, Atwood, etc. At the end of 2020, he holed up in Detmold, Germany in a WWII-era British Corps squash hall rechristened as a studio with producer Eugen Koop to create The Seed. Leaving his mark on each level of the music, M. Byrd personally plays guitar, synthesizers and bass on the record. After generating 10 million-plus streams and acclaim from outlets worldwide, he continues to perfect his vision on The Seed. Listen HERE.
