Sara Bareilles will release her sophomore major label album, Kaleidoscope Heart, on September 7th, but here at the Music Mix, we’ve got your exclusive preview stream now. (We know you can’t be made to wait.) The song is called “Uncharted,” and its lyrics gave Bareilles the title of her album. They also broke her out of some nasty writer’s block: “I actually found that I wanted nothing to do with music for a little while,” is how Bareilles puts it in her current bio. “I preferred drinking copious amounts of coffee, going to yoga, and looking for cute throw pillows at Target. I love throw pillows.”
Those who loved 2007’s breakout “Love Song” should get a kick out of this spiky, spunky piano folk. Give a listen, Mixers, and let us know in the comments: What do you think?
