3.13.13 - New Music - Michael Buble
Don’t let the first few seconds of Michael Buble’s new single fool you – he hasn’t gone country. Yes, I was scared too.
“It’s a Beautiful Day” is the lead single off Buble’s upcoming eighth album ‘To Be Loved’ which is expected in April (surely to debut at number one, by the way). The song is a new recording, which is always welcome from the standards singer. Don’t get me wrong – I love hearing Michael sing “Feeling Good” or “Save The Last Dance For Me”, but original is much more exciting.
The track might sound a bit too much like his previous hit “Haven’t Met You Yet”…in fact, I think they might be the same song. I loved that tune, so I’m on board with this, it’s just…I don’t know how radio programmers will like being served the same song twice.
But, all that aside, the song is catchy, full-banded and tongue-in-cheek. Buble sings about how even though you left him, it’s a better day (precisely because you left him in fact). I’ve been waiting for something a little sinister from him, and he delivered.
Plus I have a crush on him, so this was probably going to be good no matter what.
