Sara Bareilles‘ latest LP, The Blessed Unrest, was released yesterday and immediately lept to the top of the iTunes charts, eclipsing even Jay-Z’s mammoth Magna Carta Holy Grail. We weren’t surprised by this success in the slightest, as VH1 has been #TeamSara since the way, way back. At this point, the You Oughta Know alum looks like she has a decent shot at topping next week’s charts, which would be richly deserved success for this LP, the most accomplished collection of songs that she’s released in her career to date.
We sat down with Sara here at VH1 headquarters late last week, and she was gracious enough to give us the backstory for all 12 of the tracks featured on The Blessed Unrest. We ran the Track-By-Track commentary for the first six songs yesterday, and today we’ve got Part 2 of 2 for you.
Our Fave Lyric: “Come on and see what a fire feels like, I bet it’s just like heaven.”
What Sara Has To Say: “I was thinking about Cassiopeia as a human, and the idea that popped into my head is that she falls in love with another star, and the only way you can get close enough to be together is to collide.”
