Lindsay Lohan is back! (Words I never thought I’d be saying in 2020)
Yes, you read that correctly: Singer, actress, paparazzi target Lindsay Dee Lohan has returned with brand new music: “Back To Me,” her first official new music since the release of 2008’s “Bossy.”
Much like “Bossy,” “Back To Me” sees Lilo returning to her roots and dialing up the BPM on the ALMA-co-penned, Mark Ralph-produced EDM throb, bouncing along atop island-infused pulsations and stuttering break-downs. “I used to blame me when shit got crazy / I can’t think too much about what they say,” she sings on the opening lines, channeling a little bit of that classic “Rumors” energy before continuing to liberate herself from the past. “And now these Sundays got me feeling like Mondays / I know I drink too much, but it’s OK.”
Lindsay said in a statement that “the song is about rediscovering and accepting oneself, shutting out the noise and moving forward and letting the past go. Living in the now.”
“My life is full of ripped-up pages / I’ve been weak, contagious / But I’m coming back, I’m coming back to me,” she sings on the chorus. It’s very much “A Little More Personal (Raw)” kind of track if you will.
There are a lot of things to appreciate about “Back To Me,” even if it does sound a bit dated and generic: The bass-heavy pulse. The instant ear-worm of a chorus, the post-chorus break down, and Lindsay‘s signature rasp. It knocks in it’s own special way — and, with proper effort, it shall knock her straight back into the media’s good gracious. Welcome back, Lindsay! This is how you throw a party in quarantine, bitch!
