Bareilles releases her second single Bottle It Up. The song is written by Bareilles and produced by Eric Rosse. The single is featured on her album Little Voice.
Before I had a record deal, I wrote that song about what it would be like to have a record deal, and the struggles of how do you become an artist who feels like they haven’t quote/unquote `sold out,’ and how do you stay true to your art and figure out how to make a living from it. The chorus says it all: “I do it for love.” Music – and particularly songwriting – for me is such a passion, it’s a very sacred thing for me.
