New Music Tuesday: The Blessed Unrest – Sara Bareilles

16 Jul

Sara Bareilles has released her third full-length record entitled The Blessed Unrest (pronounced blest). In contrast to her previous records Little Voice (Love Song, Gravity, Fairytale) and Kaleidoscope Heart (King of Anything, Gonna Get Over You, Uncharted), this record displays a different sound for Sara’s music. Despite the more experimental and electronic sounds (think Radiohead, or St. Vincent) of ‘Satellite Call’ and ‘Cassiopeia’,  Sara’s familiar soulful voice and heart-felt lyrics shine through. The tracks on this record seem more philosophical, existential, and darker than her previous records. The songs have themes of mortality, loss, and strength.  There are also some catchy and cute love songs like the adorable ‘I Choose You’, and the get up off your feet and dance, ‘Little Black Dress’. This record has a song for everyone; every Sara Bareilles fan I’ve talked to have embraced the new sound. Personally, I have fallen in love with the song ‘Chasing The Sun’. It has been added to my list of top favorite songs… EVER. iTunes streamed the record a week before it’s release and it has been on repeat for a week. I love it and I know you will too. Here, take a listen. I promise you’ll love it.


here is my favorite track on the record:
