Signs Of Life: Natasha Bedingfield

I’ve been working this week to move my blog to a new host. That, combined with a ridiculous pace I’ve been keeping for the past week or so, has resulted in no new posts for several days. Sorry about that. I’m about to kick it back in gear with lots of new thoughts, observations and life commentary.  In the meantime, I wanted to share some new music with you.

I’ve enjoyed Natasha Bedingfield’s music ever since I first heard “Unwritten” about 5 years ago. I dig her voice, her soul-meets-Brit Pop sound and the fact that her music always has signs of life, truth and purpose woven throughout.  While the latter certainly sets her apart, it isn’t as surprising once you know Natasha is a member of Hillsong London church and is a frequent contributor to their worship material, most notably “Shout Your Fame”.

Natasha has been working on her upcoming 3rd album, due out later this year, but the first song has surfaced, called “Touch” and I LOVE IT!  Check it out!

Natasha Bedingfield - Touch

Always one to bring substance and significance to her lyrics, with “Touch” Natasha tells a story of how the seemingly insignificant details and mundane happenings of our daily lives aren’t really insignificant or mundane at all, but rather part of an intricately woven life tapestry where our lives and stories collide with one another and result in purpose.  In other words, we stumble upon purpose “when we dance, we we laugh, when we touch.”

Every choice we make, and every road we take
Every interaction starts a chain reaction
We’re both affected when we least expect it
And then when we touched
And it all connected
— lyrics from “Touch”

I don’t know when the album comes out yet, but if you dig “Touch” you can buy it here.

What do you think about the song?

I had not heard of her until you mentioned her at one point. I love her. Just absolutely love her voice, her sound, and her lyrics. I love how even interactions through the net seem to be apart of a chain reaction. Thanks for sharing the new song. Very excited.
