“Battlefield” is a piano based ballad with heartfelt lyrics about the end of a relationship. The stripped down track features Michele’s vocals at the forefront for the majority of the song.
“It’s easy to fall in love but it’s so hard to break somebody’s heart/ What seemed like a good idea has turned into a battlefield,” she sings at the track’s start. Listen below.
Where first single “Cannonball” was more produced with overpowering drums and electronic beats, “Battlefield” shows the Glee actress’ vocal power.
“Louder really encompasses my experiences over this past year and my journey as an artist up to this point,” Michele said in a press release. “There’s a lot of emotion but it’s also very encouraging and hopeful — it’s about pushing forward and living your life in a way that’s louder, stronger and bolder. I’m so excited to share this new side of me with my fans.”
Before she drops her new album, though Michele will return to Glee for new episodes of its fifth season on February 25.
