Sara Bareilles released her new album What’s Inside: Songs from Waitress last Friday, and it is spectacular. I have to admit, I didn’t know about the Musical (the book, or the movie either for that matter) before listening to the album. But, after a little research, with songs like When He Sees Me, and She used to be mine playing in the background, I can honestly say I’m sold.
The entire album screams ‘musical theatre’ and I absolutely love it. Sara’s voice is so full and powerful, and the music is knit together so flawlessly that each character’s emotions resonate with you for long after the song is over. It’s one of those magical compilations that brings one to another place and time, and I strongly recommend you check it out.
