 More than 80% of people said birdsong made them feel positive, according to YouGov.

The track was put together by Bill Barclay, the music director at Shakespeare’s Globe, and the Mercury-prize-nominated folk artist Sam Lee.

    The record is already number 11 on the midweek chart. It would be great to see it climb higher. And the birds were singing, a record by Sweet People, reached number 4 in 1980. This featured continuous birdsong recorded over an instrumental track.
