Melissa Etheridge’s new single, “Fearless Love,” a bold and soaring declaration for living - and loving - to the fullest, has struck a momentous chord as it soars inside the Top 30 this week on the Hot AC chart, and rises to #10 on the Triple A chart.
“Fearless Love” is the title track from Fearless Love, Melissa’s triumphant new album, arriving April 27th on Island Records.
The “Fearless Love” single and album were produced by John Shanks, whose first producer credit was Etheridge’s Breakdown, her four-time Grammy-nominated album of 1999.
Fearless Love expands on the multiple strengths that have made Etheridge one of the most beloved figures in rock. It follows The Awakening, her revealing album of 2007, with a rousing tone at once tough and tender, as only she can be. It is that force of presence which has earned her, among other accolades, the 2007 Academy Award for Best Original Song (“I Need to Wake Up” from the documentary film An Inconvenient Truth) and two Grammy Awards.
