Christina Perri continues to release new music from her forthcoming “Head or Heart” album, with the singer-songwriter dropping the new album track “Burning Gold” on Tuesday (Mar. 11). Listen below:
“I’m setting fire to the life that I know,” Perri declares on the chorus of the mid-tempo pop-rock track. Whereas current single “Human” is fragile and emotionally piercing, “Burning Gold” flashes its defiance in a handful of compact hooks, even taking a moment to showcase a ukulele solo during the bridge.
“Head or Heart” arrives on April 1 on Atlantic Records, and the “Jar of Hearts” singer will appear on “The View” and on “The Late Show with David Letterman” later in April. “Human” has sold 323,000 downloads to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan, while the album track “I Don’t Wanna Break” was also featured on the recent “Girls Volume 2” soundtrack.
Three days after the release of “Head or Heart,” Perri will embark on a North American tour, beginning Apr. 4 in Denver. Birdy will serve as her opening act.
