Birdy’s ‘Not About Angels’ Video Is Sad Yet Hauntingly Beautiful

Posted on June 12, 2014 by

You probably cried your eyes out watching The Fault in Our Stars. But if you’ve still got some tears left over, take a listen and watch the music video for Birdy’s ‘Not About Angels’ (you may remember it as the song featured near the end of the film).

While a simple music video, it’s still hauntingly gorgeous. In it, we see the 18-year-old Birdy (real name is Jasmine van den Bogaerde) playing a grand piano and walking among a room full of stars.

This isn’t the only song the British singer has written for the movie. In total, she’s contributed three songs to the TFIOS movie soundtrack including ‘Tee-Shirt” and a bonus track called “Best Shot” featuring Jaymes Young.

According to an interview with The Huffington Post, the film’s official music supervisor Season Kent said the song is perfect for the movie because, “There’s this whole back and forth that Gus and Hazel have about believing in God and believing in angels, and that’s what her song is about: it’s not about angels, it’s about us.”
