Lea’s gettin’ loud. Make that ‘Louder.’ And you know what? We like it.
Lea Michele will finally drop her solo album ‘Louder’ on March 4. We’ve already heard the big and bold ‘Cannonball,’ which is the awesome first single, and also the new song ‘Battlefield.’ Now, the title track is upon us and it’s a synthy, dancefloor-ready song, the battery of which is Michele’s powerhouse voice. It’s different than what we’ve heard from her, but it makes us want to shake our groove thangs.
Michele spoke about the song, which is not a single, saying she worked on this particular track toward the end of the recording process. She realized that the album was pop-heavy, and she wanted to have a little bit of a directional shift of sorts, and that’s where ‘Louder’ came into play.
Michele herself described the title tune as such: “It’s a song that, no matter what, I can play in my car with the windows down. But at the same time, I feel like it shows off my voice as a singer, which is really important to me, because that’s what I do. I want to make sure that every song on my record is fun and enjoyable, but also, you hear my voice in them.”
The ebullient and effervescent singer explained why she chose this as her title track, saying, “I always think it’s so important to live your life to the fullest, and love as hard as you can love, and fight as hard as you can fight. Be loud, be bold, be yourself, whether or not people understand that message. That’s what I think of when I think of the song and album.”
It’s certainly giving us an idea of what we can expect on ‘Louder.’ Love hard, fight hard, listen hard.
