SHARDS’ latest single – My Birthday – is out on Jacaranda Records today.
The Liverpool four pieces’ second release as part of the Jacaranda Records roster celebrates SHARDS’ debut year on the scene, following hard on the heels of their debut 27-track EP Refractions, which hit streaming sites last month.
Mixed and mastered in the label’s purpose-built 3D audio studio, My Birthday was produced by immersive audio producer mrmmr in collaboration with Elton John & KD Lang Engineer/Producer Greg Penny, and SHARDS.
Jacaranda Records Capomaestro Ray Mia said:
“How do you follow releasing a hugely ambitious 27-track immersive audio EP as part of your debut? Whatever you do, it had better be bloody good.
“My Birthday stands alone as a single track release, but punches well above its weight. If you want to know why SHARDS are going to be epic, just listen to this.”

About Jacaranda Records
Jacaranda Records is a reimagined record label driven by immersive audio, with a street network of live music venues and record stores in the heart of Liverpool – The UK’s music city.
Working with a wide international coalition of musicians, producers, managers and audio visual experts, the label provides a disruptive antidote to the traditional music industry ethos, forging new approaches to music creation, manufacture, promotion and distribution that leave control and revenues firmly in the hands of our artists.
We provide developing and established artists with a range of creative, technical and monetization services while preserving their full mechanical, publishing and IP rights. Artist focused, forward-thinking and expert in deploying innovative technologies and techniques through every stage of the recording, release, distribution and commercialisation cycles, the label works with a diverse range of creatives and performers to maximise the impact and returns for their work, all the while re-imagining, re-inventing and re-defining what impact and return means.
The latest evolution of the brand that launched The Beatles, Jacaranda Records is taking the soul of an organisation built on launching talent in a City where music is in its DNA, and forging a new path to support and build on the breadth of talent that walks its streets – all with an attitude and vision befitting its people and the global audiences who care about music.
