Rachel Platten – who by now you should be familiar with thanks to her chart-topping, double platinum-selling breakout single “Fight Song” – has just released her much-anticipated new single “Stand By You“!
As expected, “Stand By You” is an equally inspiring slice of foot-stomping empowerment pop that doesn’t stray too far from her life-changing smash. “Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through/ Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through hell with you/ Love, you’re not alone, cause I’m gonna stand by you/ Even if we can’t find heaven, I’m gonna stand by you,” Rachel declares on the uplifting hook. As much as I don’t want to like her (she’s just a little basic for my taste), there’s a very genuine appeal to Rachel. She’s got the story, the songs are catchy and she sounds good.
“‘Stand By You‘ is a stomp-your-feet, throw-your-hands-up, all-out celebration of love,” Rachel explained. “It’s a love song at its core, and it’s about being the hands to catch someone if they need to fall. I’m honestly obsessed with this song. Is that okay to say?” HIT OR MISS Y’ALL?
