Grace Potter Talks Making "Alive Tonight"
"Alive Tonight" is a far cry from the rock / blues infused music we're used to hearing from her. Electronic drum beats and synthesizers come together to form a dance-heavy beat, with elements of disco and funk. She hasn't completely ditched her instruments though, as there is a fuzzed out guitar solo midway through. Grace's voice is one of the most passionate in the business, and this track allows her to prove that. Some fans may disapprove of this new direction, but the song clearly shows that Grace is willing to expand her sound.
Midnight will be released later this summer. "Alive Tonight" is currently available on Amazon (MP3).
