Posted On May 10, 2017
Do you suffer from obsessively singing “Stand By You“or “Fight Song” at the top of your lungs in the car or the shower? Don’t worry, you’re not crazy or the only one. Rachel Platten had some exciting news for NEW YOU readers; she’ll be working on her third album this summer. There will be plenty more singing at the top of your lungs, about the ups and downs of life and everything in between. The New York City native attended the BMI Awards in Los Angeles this week to honor some of the biggest music icons like Barry Manilow, in addition to up and coming songwriters. The event was near and dear to Rachel’s heart, she told NEW YOU that songwriting is “the most important part of my career so a night that honors songwriting is my favorite thing to celebrate.” Rachel began her career in 2003 when she released her debut album “Trust in Me” but her true break came in 2011 when she released “Fight Song” from her Wildfire album. For someone who’s had as much success as she has, you have to wonder how she connects with fans so easily. Rachel just keeps it simple and she tells the truth, imagine that? “I just try to be as open as possible, and be as honest as possible with what I’m feeling.” It’s the truth in her lyrics that allows her to reach fans on and emotional level. There’s a reason we all want to belt out her songs whenever we can. “I find that the things that resonate the most are when I’m accessing some truth inside of me, that maybe I was uncomfortable saying or didn’t know how to express, and a song was the only way I could bring it to the light.” The great news is there will be many soul-belting songs to look forward to in the future.
