Night Birds, released in 1982 on the Polydor label, is the second album by English jazz-funk band Shakatak. Night Birds established Shakatak's trademark jazz-funk sound, and contains two of the band's biggest hits, "Easier Said than Done" and "Night Birds", the former reaching the No. 12 spot in 1981, the latter climbing to No. 9 in the following year. All tracks written by William "Bill" Sharpe and Roger Odell except where indicated.

Taking a chance on a female vocalist, Jill Saward, they released their second album, Nightbirds, which featured a radio-friendly vocal over the top of their jazz meanderings, and suddenly the pop market opened up for them with the hit single "Easier Said Than Done" with its mainly piano based tinkling and a dance beat, and Saward's vocal on the chorus. They followed this with an even bigger hit, "Night Birds" which became the title track of the second album, still with the trademark piano and jazz bassline.

Album The Coolest Cuts. Flyin through the night Floating on a wind To the city lights Night birds With the love they bring Flyin through the night Floating on a wind To the city lights Night birds With the love they bring Slowing they decend Through the darkened sky To the night again Night birds Kiss the day goodbye Flyin through the night Floating on a wind. To the city lights Night birds With the love they bring Slowing they decend Through the darkened sky To the night again Night birds Kiss the day goodbye.
