Time for some melodic gurl power, everyone!!
Sara Bareilles is back with a smashing new EP - Once Upon Another Time!!
And we have an EXCLUSIVE first-listen to one of brilliant songs in her shiny new collection of musical masterpieces.
Produced by Ben Folds, Sweet As Whole is a delicate yet aggressive nod to the familiar experience of, well quite frankly, meeting an *sshole! hah!
It's a GREAT Friday night song, especially if you need to rid yourself of some icky vibes a certain *sshole might have given you during the week! Did we mention how funny it is too?? Definitely lookin' forward to the whole EP!!
Sara says of her latest project:
Once Upon Another Time was a sort-of experiment in exploration for me. I was interested in pursuing something creatively that didn't have to fit any formula or format. I wanted to approach the recording in a different way, and hopefully show another side of myself as an artist. It was quite a roller coaster ride, and ultimately made me recognize a lot of my own strengths and weaknesses, which I tried to convey with honesty. With the help of my producer and dear friend, Ben Folds, I learned to let go a little bit, and hopefully opened the door to the next chapter of music in my life. Oh, and there's a song with a lot of swear words, so that's always fun. Hope you enjoy.
Ha! Yup!! It's a little more explicit than we're used to..
Sara is totally channeling her inner '90s Alanis Morissette it seems… and WE LOVE IT!!
