Singer-songwriter Michelle Branch has released her first pop music single, titled "Loud Music," in six years! She enjoyed a very successful detour in the country world. "Loud Music" is the first taste of her new record, titled West Coast Time, which is due for release on Reprise Records later this summer. It is Branch's first solo album in eight years, as well. Branch is back!
Take a listen to the song here. It is certainly "loud" for Branch, who is known for her dreamy pop compositions. This is a song that reaches for the rafters and fills the room with its lush instrumentation. We can't stop listening to it, since it's so big and bold, but retains Branch's signature melodic touch. She has stepped away from spare instrumentation and filled the song with lots of layers of sound.
