sara bareilles

Let the anticipation begin…

Sara Bareilles has recently released the first single off her sophomore album.  The album will be named “Kaleidoscope Heart” and will be released sometime late this summer.

I am so fucking stoked is all I can really say.  It has been three years since “Little Voice” came out and I have just about played out the cd.  It is not very often that an album comes along that every song is great.  The album is so good that I hate to split the songs up by putting them on my mp3 player or a mix tape.

“Little Voice” was influential and changing in my life and has earned its place on my top 10 albums of all time list.  Can not wait to hear what she has for us next.

OK, enough gushing.

The new single is called “King of Anything” and it has me very excited to hear the rest of the album.  It is a bit of a Fuck You song, which is always great but it also has the driving piano melody, pointed lyrics, sing-a-long, dance in your car with it blaring out the windows thing that makes Sara so phenomenal.

Check it out and enjoy!

I was on the Amazon associate website today and found this very cool widget. How fun, to share the music I am listening to right now. My taste in music travels with my mood and therefore varies considerably from day to day and week to week. 

This week I have been feeling unable to choose for myself and in need of an energy boost, so what better to serve that purpose than the top tracks play list at Rhapsody. That’s why you will find the latest in club rage on this week’s list. This is a little outside the norm for me, but I genuinely enjoy each one of them.

Also on my list is the lovely Sara Bareilles. This is hands down my favorite album of the year. Don’t be put off by the overplaying of “Love Song”, although I have to say that I still am enjoying that song, it’s actually one of Ada’s favorites. But, this whole album is really amazing. Her voice resonates in your head long after your done listening. The song “Between the Lines” that is in the above widget will go on my all time favorite lists. I do have to admit that part of that is because her range matches mine and this song is just so much fun to sing.
