While dyed-in-Slushie Gleeksters are going to have to wait until March 8 for the entire album to drop, two of the new original Glee songs debuted this morning on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show. Our favorite of the two? The poppy, snotty “Loser Like Me,” a tune celebrating the life of a nerd rebel. Says Glee‘s musical director Adam Anders, “It’s a very uptempo, kind-of-summery hit.” The song was co-written by Max Martin, a producer and songwriter who also helped create such gems as Katy Perry‘s “Teenage Dream” and a string of Britney Spears‘ hits spanning from “…Baby One More Time” all the way to “Hold It Against Me.” “Loser” is just the thing to get Gleeks everywhere singing along into their hair brushes in front of the mirror after spending the weekend stuffed in a locker.
The second jam is the power ballad “Get It Right” featuring Lea Michele going it solo. While Broadway-trained Michele needs no Autotune to hit the high notes, it more resembles a moody Kelly Clarkson/ Evanescence song rather than the bombastic show-stopper we would have hoped from her. So not Rachel Berry. Now if we can only get a Jane Lynch nu-metal joint to look forward to, we’ll be first in line to snatch this album up.
