Gwen Stefani - Misery
Gwen Stefani doesn't release her new LP This Is What the Truth Feels Like until March 18th, but the No Doubt singer has unveiled the album's latest single and opening track "Misery." Despite the dour title, the catchy single is actually an anthem to a new relationship, with the only "misery" being when Stefani's away from the song's fledgling romance. The video features the track's handwritten, feel-good lyrics. "Misery" follows This Is What the Truth Feels Like singles "Make Me Like You" and the breakup ballad "Used to Love You." Stefani's new album, her first since 2006's The Great Escape arrives March 18th.
American Authors - Pride
It’s an instant sing-along, the tune just requiring a few listens before you’ll be singing right along with Zac Barnett on the anthem that seems to be about being content with yourself, even if you feel lost or if life seems uncertain at the moment. “My home don’t feel the same. Last year flew by, goodbye to the good vibes… Now I’m lost in the neighborhood that raised me…” goes a portion of the first verse, much of the song casting that vibe about feeling alienated in what was once the familiar, struggling to cope and find where your new place in the world is.
The message is no matter how lost, you will find your place, especially if you hold on to your pride.
