“Cause even the stars they burn, some even fall to the earth.”
It’s always such a great day when we get new music from our favorite artists. That first glimpse of an upcoming album brings with it a splendid level of excitement, a feeling of anticipation we welcome eagerly. It is even stronger when we have followed that artist since the beginning. Today we have one of those artists. Our resident Curbside Prophet has brought us another remedy for our music obsession. I Won’t Give Up is the first sample off of Jason Mraz’s fourth studio album, “Love is a Four Letter Word”, which is expected April 17, 2012. The song is a little bit different from what we’re used to, a sweet mix of folk and pop we haven’t really heard from him before. It seems Jason Mraz has now become the go-to-guy for romantic, pop ballads. The song shifts from a soft acoustic performance, to a powerful vocal chorus, ending with a gospel style ensemble of voices. I won’t Give Up is another brilliant, beautiful melody from the singer, emotion flows out of every phrase. I love how the song is played as such a simple truth. “I won’t give up on us, even if the skies get rough. I’m giving you all my love. I’m still looking up.” Go on, music lovers. Give it a listen and tell me what you think.
