2017 has been a busy year for Sara Bareilles! In addition to playing the lead role in her musical Waitress (for which she composed all the music), she also announced plans to release a new album by the end of 2017. It would be the long-awaited followup to her 2013 record, The Blessed Unrest. Alas, the year is almost over now, and all we got was one new song for a movie. Luckily, fans need not worry too much. In a new Instagram live chat, Sara assuaged fans’ fears and gave us a much-needed update on the new music. Sara says she has some “pretty slick songs” ready for the new record, which will get released next year!

Sara’s last studio album, The Blessed Unrest, came out in July 2013. It launched her hit single, “Brave,” written for a friend struggling to come out. She also released her musical album, What’s Inside: Songs From Waitress, in November 2015. It’s made up of songs Sara wrote for the Broadway musical, Waitress, including her ballad, “She Used To Be Mine.”
Most recently, in September Sara released her new song, “If I Dare,” written for the film Battle Of The Sexes. You can stream “If I Dare” on Spotify or download it from iTunes now. Enjoy the new track while we wait for album #5 – it may be a good indication of how the new music will sound. Book fans will also love Sara’s 2015 autobiography, Sounds Like Me: My Life (So Far) In Song. It’s a must-read for Sara Bareilles fans, music lovers, and autobiography buffs alike.
It will be exciting to finally get a new Sara Bareilles album full of “pretty slick songs” next year! Catch up on all we know about it so far, and keep checking back here for all the latest Sara Bareilles music news.
