Alana Springsteen is a singer-songwriter who has been named one of the “Next Women of Country” by CMT. Alana is releasing her debut album “Twenty Something” in a unique way. There will be three parts, all aptly titled for the lessons she has learned. The first six songs are part of the “Messing It Up” section of being a twenty-something.
Alana Springsteen – “TWENTY SOMETHING: Messing It Up”
“I’ve done a lot of growing over the last few years and some of that work involved understanding how I tend to get things wrong. In my case a lot of that happens when it comes to matters of the heart… bad judgment, ignoring red flags, self-sabotage, and my own self-defense mechanisms… my fear of letting someone see me exactly as I am, nothing more nothing less. long story short… part one is a lot of me calling myself out.” Alana Springsteen via Instagram.
After listening to the songs (on repeat for a while because I loved them) I can without a doubt say that Alana Springsteen is a vulnerable, heart on her sleeve, and honest songwriter.
TWENTY SOMETHING: Messing It Up Track List:
“You Don’t Deserve A Country Song”
“If You Love Me Now”
“Caught Up To Me”
“Goodbye Looks Good On You (feat. Mitchell Tenpenny)”
“Tennessee Is Mine”
“Shoulder To Cry On”
My personal favorite track from the album is “Goodbye Looks Good On You (feat. Mitchell Tenpenny.)” The song was released the same day as a single, which included a music video. The combo of Alana and Mitchell’s tones just does something to my ears that I love.
One thing I know for sure, I am so glad Alana Springsteen took the opposite page of Morgan Wallen’s book and didn’t release a 36-track debut album. Thanks, girl! And for that, we are forever fans!
