Rachel Platten is one of those songwriters who just knows how to capture the moment. That is why you hear her music on shows such as “Jane By Design” and “Pretty Little Liars.” In fact, if you caught the 100th episode of “Pretty Little Liars” this week you could hear the haunting verse from Rachel’s “Begin Again” climb and build into a triumphant chorus as Ali returned to school. Platten’s latest offering is the lyric video to her anthemic “Fight Song.”
In “Fight Song,” the artist paints a vivid portrait from the very first line. Her pristine vocals sparkle like the edge of a diamond as the intensity crescendos to a rousing call to arms by the time the chorus hits.
“Throughout this challenging process of writing and producing my second album, I've been through the ringer of emotions; soul shaking doubt to unequivocal belief and everything in between.” Rachel stated in a message to her fans yesterday. “‘Fight Song’ tells my story of the ups and downs and maintaining my fire through all of it.”
She continued with, “It's been amazing having music out in the world again and getting to read your warm responses. Please continue to leave comments, sing it at the top of your lungs, let it fill you up with fire and strength and belief in yourself, and share it with anyone you think might need a fight song right now.”
