The full audio of the title track of Lea Michele’s debut album ‘Louder’ has made its online debut and you can listen to it now. It’s the third song to preview from the ‘Glee’ star’s highly anticipated new album.
The song had its initial exclusive preview on Billboard.com. The 27-year-old actress and singer shared her thoughts about the song with the publication, saying, “It’s a song that, no matter what, I can play in my car with the windows down. But at the same time, I feel like it shows off my voice as a singer, which is really important to me, because that’s what I do. I want to make sure that every song on my record is fun and enjoyable, but also, you hear my voice in them.”
As with the previous songs, the beauty and the power of the voice we have come to know and love throughout the seasons of ‘Glee’ is fully evident. Lea Michele, who got her start at a child Broadway actress and as she transitioned to adulthood has always had the powerhouse voice of musical theater, and now, as an emerging pop star, it’s a refreshing sound. After all we have had too many Auto-tune singers in these past several years. A real voice is always welcome.
Even prior to this new song release, Lea Michele had made her mark with the album’s debut single, the Sia-penned ‘Cannonball’ — an anthem of survival, beautifully sung by a survivor — and the recently released music video. She has said in more than one interview the song has helped her as she grieves the death of boyfriend and fellow ‘Glee’ star Cory Monteith.
As for the album itself, Lea Michele also shared with Billboard.com her thoughts on the title ‘Louder’ as well as the meaning of the song. She said “I always think it’s so important to live your life to the fullest, and love as hard as you can love, and fight as hard as you can fight. Be loud, be bold, be yourself, whether or not people understand that message. That’s what I think of when I think of the song and album.”
The song is available for download on iTunes, and you can listen to it in its entirety below. ‘Louder’ the album will be released on March 4th.
