With Wildfire just two weeks away from dropping on January 1st, Rachel Platten has decided to provide us with even more reassuring glimpses into her anticipated full-length debut LP!
This week, the “Fight Song” breakout star has thrown “Better Place” into the ring as the album’s latest pre-order grat track. Unlike the previous cuts, Rachel doesn’t rely on big anthemic production or on-trend radio tricks, which is largely why “Better Place” feels so compelling: The song organically builds along a slow-moving piano melody and gorgeous orchestral strings. “And I hold my favorite thing/ I hold the love that you bring/ But it feels like I’ve opened my eyes again,” she softly sings in the chorus. “And the colors are golden and bright again/ There’s a song in my heart, I feel like I belong/ It’s a better place since you came along…” SO PRETTY – WIN!
