It's bluesy, it's pop-tinged, it's soulful and it's one of our favorite songs of 2015.
It's Friday. It's summer. Let's cruise into the warm weekend with the sun on our faces and by cranking Meghan Linsey's breezy new track "This Side of Heaven." It's bluesy, soulful and pop-tinged, with only a mere hint of the country stylings on which Linsey launched her career. It's a feel-good and uplifting anthem and it's one of our favorite songs of 2015. Own it!
"I got the title for 'This Side of Heaven' from my mom," the singer told us. "She used the title in a text to me and I wrote it down. The inspiration really came from all the haters on my Facebook and Twitter. I wrote this song with Tyler Cain and Julie Moriva. It's about loving each other. 'We're all just living on this side of heaven.' The message is simple... We're all just trying to get through each day. Be kind."
You hear that? Take that sound advice and beautiful sentiment from Meghan Linsey. Stop hating and try veering towards "This Side of Heaven."
Linsey, who was once one-half of the country duo Steel Magnolia, competed to a second place finish on Season 8 of NBC's The Voice. But second place isn't the first runner up! As if. She is moving full steam ahead and will release her Believer EP, on which "This Side of Heaven Lives," on July 31.
We are thrilled to be sharing this taste of "Heaven" with Meghan Linsey. If this song doesn't eventually end up in a montage scene from a Cameron Diaz rom com, well, then music supervisors in the film world aren't doing their job!
Let Meghan Linsey transport you to heaven!
'Beliver' EP from Meghan Linsey is released July 31, 2015 via Bold Music Group.
