I haven’t really followed American Idol since the early days. I think the last season where I watched an episode was the season that Carrie Underwood was on. So it’s been awhile.
But I heard that Kree Harrison had a new single out and I remembered the name from American Idol. I know now that she did well on the show and built a strong fanbase. And I knew that she had put out a single right after her run on the show, but I hadn’t heard from her since.
So I’m not sure what happened in the last few years, but she’s got a great new song.
This Old Thing – Kree Harrison
This song is all kinds of things mixed up and turned into something catchy and fun. I like this one a lot. I can’t really define this one. It’s just a mix of different kinds of music. Kree’s voice definitely seems like it belongs in the country world, but this song has elements of old pop music, a little lounge music and a few other inspirations. It’s pretty cool and when you just enjoy the song you find yourself kind of wanting to groove around on the dance floor.
I imagine that this song would be great for a romantic comedy movie. It just makes you feel good and I can imagine the two stars in a movie smiling and having a good time with this one. Maybe we’ll hear this one in the theaters later this year.
I like this one. I don’t know how it will do on the charts. It looks like maybe it’s an independent release, but you never know.
