Country artist Jessica Meuse is releasing her original song, “Thank God It Didn’t Work,” today from her forthcoming August 3rd album, Halfhearted. The single is being serviced to country radio stations and a new lyric video has just been released.
“One of the songs I’ve been focusing on is ‘Thank God It Didn’t Work” which is my very first co-write (with Kelly Walls and David Norris of Nashville, TN),” said Jessica. “It’s a big powerhouse song, both vocally and lyrically, about everything in life that didn’t work out and it actually ended up being a good thing. It’s a pretty deep message and I am beyond excited to see what the public’s response will be. For this song, I really channeled into the 90s country vibe I grew up listening to…that Martina McBride vocal power. It’s one of those songs that, when you finish writing it and play it through for the first time, you just shake your head and say, ‘Yeah, that’s the one.'”<
“The entire process for Halfhearted has been an amazing adventure so far — one that’s led me all over the country, to several places I have never been,” related Meuse. “My team and I are now preparing for another full band concert at Three Rivers Regatta in Pittsburgh on 8/5. I couldn’t be more excited to see another new place and more of myMuseMafia fanbase! In between these larger festival shows, I’ve been doing a lot of radio tour and press to promote Halfhearted, which is completely new territory to me.”
“After ‘Thank God It Didn’t Work,’ the full album will be released on 8/3! Halfhearted is 15 original, brand spankin’ new songs, most of which I wrote after my American Idol experience. There is a lot of maturity and growth on these compositions and many were actually written about me finding myself and figuring out my way in life through the successes and the disappointments. There are the emotional, string-laden tunes like ‘Beyond the Sea’ and ‘California Dream,’ and then there are the sassy, witty tunes like ‘Love Her Better’ and ‘High.’ This album captures my entire personality and my full life story — especially in the title track ‘Halfhearted.’ I can’t wait to see how the world receives this collection of songs and I’m beyond excited to continue the radio and festival tour and push everything forward!”
