'Shatter Me' takes flight and ascends

Lindsey Stirling's new album, Shatter Me, was released in the U.S. today. It's available for purchase and download through iTunes and Amazon. According to Lindsey's Facebook page, this caused her to be currently No. 1 on the iTunes Charts and Amazon's Album of the Week. However, Target has a deluxe album available with some additional exclusive tracks, which may be an incentive for diehard fans to shop there.

The hit tracks “Beyond The Veil” and “Shatter Me” have both already been released as music videos on Youtube with over 3 million views each. What everyone is wondering about is the rest of the album. Stirling's style involves a Celtic vibe with electro-pop and dub-step violin. She never sings, but the music is always danceable. The song “Shatter Me” is a perfect example of both her lyrical and vocalistic successes. The words are a metaphor for Stirling's wish to break free of her shell, both career wise and personally. "Shatter Me" is the first time she has written her own lyrics for her own music. Lzzy Hale of Halestorm made her dreams come true by adding her vocals to the track. The only other featured vocals on the album are Dia Frampton's on “We Are Giants.” While the lyrics go with the theme of the album, it could have done without this one, as its executed with an excruciatingly bubblegum pop sound.
