Her album trailer featured snippets of several upcoming songs, including lead single “Young Blood,” which she previewed in demo form last month. Now she’s unveiled the song in full, and it’s just as gorgeous as the demo promised: a sweet, timeless piano ballad with strings and gorgeous choral harmonies on the bridge. The tremble in her voice on the chorus is chill-inducing, and the melody is gently infectious.
While the better-known pop divas are floundering with their releases, this is one we can count on to be great— and it has my anticipation running high for the album’s January 20 release.
