Curb | Word Entertainment recording artist Sarah Reeves officially unveils her highly-anticipated new LP, Life Love & Madness, available today (10/9). Reeves holds co-writing credit on each of the album’s 14 tracks.
Life Love & Madness boasts some of the most vulnerable writing of Reeves’ career, set against a backdrop of colorful, propulsive pop. American Songwriter has already showered Reeves’ latest collection with praise, saying, “In a world that needs something to dance to, Sarah Reeves delivers ‘Paradise.’”
Produced by Ian Keaggy (Hot Chelle Rae), Life Love & Madness is part mature reflection, part heartfelt confession. As a milestone birthday dawned a new decade for the singer/songwriter, she wisely took it as an opportunity to rewind the previous 10 years of her life and gain some much-needed perspective. Then, she set the past decade to lyric and music. Like a time capsule, her new LP preserves the best and worst of her 20s—a defining decade in every way.
“It was a venture of discovering who I am, learning how to love and letting all the madness in between become a part of my story,” Reeves shares of the decade staring back at her in the rearview that informed her new album. “It’s beautiful, chaotic, vulnerable and imperfect; but I wouldn’t have these songs without the experience. I’ve used this album as therapy for what I’m feeling, and I hope it can be therapy for other people.”
Leading up to today’s release of Life Love & Madness, Reeves dropped a series of official music videos for six fresh tracks. The most recent being a moody visualizer for “Motions” that transports Reeves into a hauntingly beautiful forest and also finds the songstress literally wearing a brave face, void of any makeup. Cinematic clips are also available for “Heart First,” “Paradise,” “Dance To It,” “Don’t Feel Like Fighting” and “Anxious.”
