Dearest lover, Michelle Branch has got a message for you…
With her upcoming comeback album Hopeless Romantic just weeks away from release on April 7, Michelle‘s gone ahead and unveiled a new song from the set called “Best You Ever,” a punchy, psychedelic nostalgic ode to a former flame that, like lead single “Hopeless Romantic,” combines the pop-heavy acoustics that characterized her early records with a driving electro-guitar pulse, similar to the work of the Black Keys — it’s old school and new school, all at once.
“I want you to remember me/ In lucid dream/ As the best you ever,” Michelle achingly laments across the infectious chorus, her voice complimented by subtle flares of alluring synths and haunting background coos. The song maintains the swaggering vibes of the title track, but there’s a distinctly more “accessible” approach this time around. The perfect modernization of what made us all fall in love with Michelle‘s songwriting in the first place – LOVE!
