Michelle Branch is back and it sounds beautiful. The singer/songwriter is tapping into her rock side on “Hopeless Romantic,” premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Feb. 2).
The track kicks off with powerful lyrics as Branch sings “’Cause I’m a hopeless romantic/ When I should run for my life/ You got me on my knees/ You got me crawlin’.” From there, her smooth vocals perfectly complement the mid-tempo, laid-back drums and guitar throughout the song.
“Hopeless Romantic” is the title track off Branch’s upcoming album due out April 7 which she produced with her now-partner Patrick Carney of the Black Keys. Her last release was the EP Everything Comes and Goes, which dropped in 2010.
