One of three bonus tracks on the deluxe edition of Origins, “Birds” muses on fading memories and a couple’s gradual parting of ways and promises eternal love, using a metaphor of migrating birds; a natural part of life.

Likely inspired by Dan Reynolds‘ changing relationship with his wife Aja Volkman, Dan insisted they would remain best friends even after their temporary split.

Although not originally a single from the album, the song became a fan favorite, being broadcast on numerous international radio stations and encouraging the creation and release of a remix with Italian singer-songwriter, Elisa.
