Robert Pattinson’s “Bella’s Lullaby” is everything we wanted in a lullaby and then some. We’re still in awe of the gorgeous ballad; in fact, we’re still in awe of Robert Pattinson! Don’t get us wrong, the man is amazingly talented, but it’s not just about his acting skills. He’s also a phenomenal musician who can really belt out a song. With a beautiful pop/rock sound and a voice that could melt even the hardest of hearts, “Bella’s Lullaby” is sure to become one of the summer’s big hits.
While we’re on the subject of pop stars and their music, we can’t help but rave about One Direction. Harry, Louis, and co. put on an amazing live show and they’ve now released their fourth album, “Four”.[Blog article]:
One Direction’s “Four” Is An Unforgettable Pleasure
If you’re reading this, I assume you’re either a Directioner yourself or someone who knows one, knows them well. If not, then it’s high time you got on board with the craze (if you’re not already a fan). Four was finally released last week and it’s been getting rave reviews ever since. It’s safe to say these boys know how to put on a performance!
The album kicks off with the title track “Four,” an irresistible pop anthem about trying on new things and going where the crowds are. It’s a song that will have you dancing and singing along (if not, then perhaps your friends or family will have to fill you in on the song’s meaning — it’s not as easy to pull off a one-way conversation).
The second song, “Love Me”, is one of the more mellow numbers on the album. It’s a simple but effective pop/rock song that will appeal to fans of all ages. It’s a perfect follow-up to “Four,” which in turn sets the mood for the whole album. On the more serious side, the album explores identity and individuality, a theme that the band is exploring in their own live shows now. “If You Wanna”, one of the album’s older tracks, was written by Louis and also appears on his solo album. It’s another heartfelt ballad that explores the heartbreak of unrequited love. Whether you agree with the sentiment or not, it’s an incredible song to behold.
The boys wrapped up 2018 with a bang (and by bangs, we mean concerts) and they started the new year with an intimate show at the Brighton Dome in London. The tickets for this concert sold out within minutes of going on sale, proving once again that One Direction is undoubtedly the band of the moment. The boys are back in the country this week for some more gigs and a bit of a break before embarking on a massive world tour in support of the new album. We can’t imagine anything more fitting for a band who have risen to such mainstream popularity than a world tour. It would be an incredible feat if they could perform in front of hundreds of thousands of people on their biggest tour yet! We hope they do, we really do.
How Does “Bella’s Lullaby” Compare To Other Lullabies?
Other lullabies are often sweet and pretty, with softer songs that will have you crooning along. They’re generally shorter too, so there’s less of them. “Bella’s Lullaby” is, in a word, epic. It’s 11 minutes of pure magic that will stay with you for a long, long time. It doesn’t hurt that this song has some of the most memorable lyrics we’ve ever heard. The harmonies are brilliant and it’s hard not to sing along, even if you don’t know the words. It would be wonderful to have such a long song as a lullaby for your little one; it means they’ll get a nice long sleep and you get to enjoy some quality parent/child time.
The other night, we were lying in bed with our newborn daughter while listening to a sample on YouTube of “Bella’s Lullaby.” Even before the first chorus, we knew we had to have this song. It’s already stuck in our heads (and we didn’t get a chance to listen to it all the way through).
It’s amazing to think that these sweet ballads are the only type of songs Robert Pattinson is allowed to write. We’d love to see more from him, but at least we have “Bella’s Lullaby” to hold out for more epic stuff in the future.
When Is “Bella’s Lullaby” Out On Vinyl?
The vinyl version of “Bella’s Lullaby” will be released on May 2nd and it comes with an exclusive B-side. The band has described it as an alternative take on one of their earlier songs. It’s available to pre-order now and we have the feeling this one will be flying off the shelves once the album drops.
The first pressing of the vinyl will include a bonus 7″ vinyl featuring an exclusive B-side. It will be available to buy at some point this month, but we don’t have the exact details yet. You can bet your sweet, little baby ears that we’ll have it in stock when it does.
Need another reason to grab yourself some vinyl this month? We’ve got you covered. The label Sideshow has put together a list of the best vinyl records of May. It’s an incredible collection of albums and EP’s that will have something to suit everyone. Check out the list and see if there’s something there that you might like. Be sure to add “Bella’s Lullaby” to your collection alongside the other beautiful music from One Direction, Lady Gaga, Travis Scott, and more.
