The metaphors for love are endless. Fire, mountains, war...you name it, somebody has compared love to it. But the problem with romantic metaphors in music is that they all invariably return to the same two things: heartbreak or the need to prove intensity in a romantic relationship. "God Only Knows" is the greatest love song of the 20th century precisely because it's a honest understanding of "I may not always love you." And in her new track, "No Stone," singer-songwriter Jenny Gillespie
has crafted another unconvention introspection into love: this time looking at the way love reshapes us through its power.
We couldn't be happier to have the exclusive premiere of "No Stone." With a stirring mix of the vocal melodrama of Fiona Apple and the piano pop-rock theatrics of Elton John, Jenny Gillespie anchors a contemplative meditation on the transformative nature of romance with her sinuous voice and a gorgeous but unconventional piano melody. Her new album, Cure for the Dreaming
, is due out January 29th of next year, and we can't wait to dig into it.
