Leighton Meester is mostly known for her stellar turn as Gossip Girl’s ultimate queen bee Blair Waldorf, but she’s also been known to dabble in pop music from time to time. To date she’s featured on Cobra Starship’s ‘Good Girls Go Bad’ and popped up on various soundtracks but now she’s back with a brand new single and ready to get Serious Face. HRRNNNK. ALARM POP.
‘Heartstrings’ is a painfully gorgeous slice of mid tempo guitar pop, taking all the best bits of Lana Del Rey with a side of country twang for good measure. The dreamy production floats like a cloud and Leighton’s voice swells with the chorus to a lush climax. This is the perfect soundtrack to sitting alone being pensive, walking alone being pensive, staring out over the ocean looking pensive… you get the idea.
So far the track is only available in the US (boo!) but you can have a listen to it right here because we’re nice like that.
