Rachel Platten Unveils The Cover Of New Single “Stand By You”
After 12 years of hard toil, Rachel Platten finally struck chart gold with “Fight Song.” The feel-good anthem topped iTunes, peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 and has sold 1.1 million downloads thus far. More impressive, however, is the way the track has been embraced by people going through tough times as their own personal mantra. (If you want to cry/feel incredibly inspired, watch this beautiful sing-a-long with pre-teen cancer patient Jeremiah).
How do you follow a hugely successful song that has deeply touched people’s lives? With a track called “Stand By You.” Rachel has been performing the mid-tempo tune, which drops tomorrow (September 11), in her live sets and it’s another mood-lifting anthem. (She really has carved out a niche as pop’s new self-help guru!) I’m a little sad EP highlight “Lone Ranger” was passed over, but this will do nicely.
