Singer and songwriter ignites an uplifting creative rebirth going another "Thousand Miles" towards greatness.
Vanessa Carlton sounds utterly transfixing on "Young Heart." Based in Nashville, the singer and songwriter crafts a wistful and wonderful ballad that's worthy of her biggest hits. At the same time, there's an intimacy to the vocalization that sees her tread new territory. Listening to "Young Heart" even just once, and you feel like you're getting closer to Vanessa than ever before. The soft acoustic guitars and faintly tender instrumentation hypnotizes as her voice carries a hook that you won't be able to forget. "Young Heart" serves as the first glimpse at her forthcoming new album Liberman, out on Dine Alone Records this fall.
The most impressive thing is just how effectively she enchants with minimal instrumentation, allowing the song's soul to really shine through. This one feels primed for massive television and film syncs, and there's no doubt we'll be hearing it quite a bit over the coming year. It's that great of a song though, and you'll welcome every time that first strum begins.
