First Impressions: Natasha Bedingfield Stargazes For New Track

Monday, March 22, 2010

Being the chirpy guidance counselor of the music industry, Natasha Bedingfield has unleashed a brand new track that follows in the same vein as her other inspirational, "You can do it!" concoctions. Like a motivational poster on a wall, "Shoot For The Stars" rolls on in with robust lyrical delivery from Ms. Bedingfield.  The track is slated to be on Natasha's forthcoming follow-up to 2008's Pocketful Of Sunshine, and while details have been scarce, Bedingfield disclosed on her blog that she is indeed wrapping things up for her third official release. Three other songs have been confirmed for the record, but this track is the first to quietly make an appearance around the Internets.  

"Shoot For The Stars" is pretty basic, though the climax of instrumentation with strings and synths is nicely derived, yet there isn't anything experimental on Natasha's part that wasn't heard on her impressive 2005 debut, Unwritten. I have always been a fan of Natasha's earthy soul and pop diary concept tunes, so of course this appeals to me, but still I'm wanting something a bit more than a vanilla mid-tempo ballad that doesn't seem to capture. Hopefully, Natasha has some more tricks up her sleeve for her new set.

  1. i love her too. i read an article recently saying that the sound is going to be a complete shocker... this isn't a good indication of that. i hear some P!nk-ish influence on this one.

  2. I agree, it does have a P!nk influence. I'm looking forward to what she's bringing but I'm with you, I don't want another 'Pocketful of Sunshine' I want something different!
