ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Drew to premiere her song "Plus One" from the to-be-independently released The Other Side.
"The expression 'plus one' was inspired by the wedding invitations that still trickle in from my younger husband's friends and less romantically, by the decade or so that I spent on music industry guest lists or pretending to be on the list by saying I was the 'plus one' of whichever high-profile boss I was working for at the time," Drew told us. "The idea of a plus one as a stand-alone entity, the wing-man or road dog, seemed to be an inclusive, modern way of expressing the idea of being someone's main squeeze. The term doesn't sweat the details of old-fashioned titles. It's broader than that, which is why I wrote that this is 'more than a love song.' For me the words, plus one, and the two symbols + and 1, express the grimy truth of what it means to honor and cherish someone until death do you part, not in a Jane Austen novel or a Disney movie, but in the real world."
About her EP, Drew said, "My hope is that these songs resonate with other women out there who have done some living and who have persevered on their journey no matter what life has thrown their way."
With that in mind, enjoy the track. We did!
