First Impressions: Melanie Fiona's Ready For 2011 With New Song, Album

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Throw some glitter in the air, Melanie Fiona is releasing a new album next year! Oh, joy, she's also got a new song to go along with that new album!  It's a ballad called "Gone & Never Coming Back", but no sweat considering that Ms. Fiona is one who can churn out a ballad without batting an eye. Remember "It Kills Me"? Erm, sorry, I guess I got that song stuck in your head now.

Cleanse your brain and come back to now with "Gone & Never Coming Back", as it's the rumored first single from Fiona's 2011 sophomore set, The MF Life. It's a staggering and fist-to-the-wall Gospel cry that really shoots for the stars and features Fiona's great range as she  , you know typical power ballad subjects. Even though, I like my ballads a little on the darker side, the arrangement on this is something I can appreciate as it doesn't feel like a cut n' paste ballad, it gives Fiona lots of room to wiggle her voice in, and she makes the most of the space given. The track does get better after multiple listens and you can't deny those pipes from one of Canada's golden voices. Listen below and get even more excited for the new year when we get to see more of what Melanie has in store.

Oh, and as an added bonus, check after the cut to see Melanie perform Bruno Mars' great single, "Grenade", it's mighty satisfying!
