Does Sara Bareilles Have A New Album Coming Out? It Might Be Here Sooner Than You Think
I like to think I have pretty good taste in music, and I really love pop in particular. There's nothing better than a big pop number to really make you feel like life is big and amazing and beautiful — oh, and a lot of fun, too. With that in mind, it's no surprise that I've loved Sara Bareilles since "Love Song" back in 2007. I've been following her career ever since, and every time she releases a new single, I fall in love with her music all over again. Last year, she wrote the music and lyrics to the Waitress musical (based on the 2007 film of the same name), and last week she released a song from it called "She Used To Be Mine". A new single should mean a new album, right? Turns out, the track will serve as the lead single to Bareilles' new album What’s Inside: Songs From Waitress, which is due out next month. Yay!
To say that Bareilles has been busy lately is an understatement. In addition to writing the music for Waitress, she recently penned a memoir entitled Sounds Like Me: My Life (So Far) in Song that's coming out on October 6 and will also spawn a book tour. But we want to know more about What's Inside, right?
Lucky for us, Bareilles' new album will contain songs from Waitress (obviously), but if we're lucky, it might even have a few other tracks she wrote separately from the musical. This is great news because it means we get the best of both worlds in terms of song selection, but most importantly, it's great news because it means a new Sara Bareilles album, and likely a new tour to follow. Basically, it's great news all around.
What's Inside: Songs From Waitress will be Bareilles' sixth album. Her last album, 2013's The Blessed Unrest, earned her an Album of the Year nomination at the Grammys. Maybe this new album will finally get her the trophy she so clearly deserves. Either way, one thing's for sure: it'll be amazing to listen to.
