11.19.13 - New Music - Colbie Caillat
Colbie Caillat has always been the sweet girl next door with a guitar playing summery love songs, but it seems she is looking to shake things up with new single “Hold On”. The Ryan Tedder-produced track is a stunner. Colbie is probably looking to push her career to new heights, as she has done what she can with her typical sound (in case you didn’t know, she has already won two Grammys, including one for Album of the Year with Taylor Swift).
“Hold On” is much more in Tedder’s style than Colbie’s. In fact, she doesn’t even sound like herself anymore--she sounds better. A massive drum-led chorus with soaring vocals has worked for Ryan Tedder before, so why change things up?
The single previews her upcoming fifth album, and while I wouldn’t have necessarily been excited, I certainly am now. This could be something special.
