It's Thursday, which is the new Friday. Know what that means? We've got a fresh piece of content to kick off your pre-weekend and it's a video vignette from Meiko, where she discusses her new track "Be Mine." ARTISTdirect is thrilled to premiere this clip and to team up with the crystalline-voiced Meiko (who wants sushi, BTW) so that you can become better acquainted with her song.
The song lives on Dear You, out via Fantasy/Concord Music on October 14.
The video is about 90 seconds and in it, Meiko says that the song is about needing a shag, since she was missing her long-distance boyfriend when she wrote it. BTW, we're lovin' her breathy-sexy-kitten-like voice.
The 11 songs on Dear You consist primarily of Meiko's private, unsent letters. "I like writing letters: love letters, pissed-off letters, breakup letters," she explained. "I rarely wind up mailing those letters, though. Instead, I turn them into songs. Dear You is an album mostly filled with those unsent notes."
We love that her unsent letters are not wasted. They are repurposed into song and they come from a real and passionate place. That makes for the best music.
So get to know Meiko, "Be Mine" and Dear You on an even more intimate level.
Did you get to know Meiko and "Be Mine?" How much do you love her now? She is so easy to crush on.
