Lifehouse plotting new album for late-2012 release
Christian rockers Lifehouse have taken about three years off from releasing new music, but the boys are back with their first new song in three years, and it features pop singer Natasha Bedingfield. Lifehouse’s just-released single, “Between the Raindrops,” is a duet sung with Bedingfield, and it’s available now on iTunes and all the usual digital spots.
“Between the Raindrops” marks the first duet the band has ever recorded. The song arrives on Lifehouse’s upcoming sixth studio album, which is set to drop later this year.
“’Between the Raindrops’ is a confluence of all these different musical styles coming together,” frontman Jason Wade said in an official statement. “There is this cinematic spaghetti western undercurrent breathing and moving in the confines of a pop rock song.
“The track started as a complete experiment, a sort of stream of consciousness. Over the next few ensuing months Jude and I rewrote the song at least half a dozen times. We brought our friend Jacob Kasher in to help us finish the lyrics. I feel like the song really was solidified and came to life when Natasha came down to the studio and sang on the track.”
More details on Lifehouse’s forthcoming album is expected to drop in the coming weeks. To hear an album teaser, visit the band’s official website.
