Just three days from now, Natasha Bedingfield will release her long-awaited new album, Roll With Me. We’ve already heard the singles “Roller Skate,” “Kick It,” and “Everybody Come Together” featuring Angel Haze. We’ve also gotten to hear acoustic versions of the first two singles. Now, with only a few days left, Natasha is counting down the hours with daily videos. Following a preview of “Where We Going Now” two days ago, our newest video teases another new song: “Real Love.”
In our T-3 Days video, Natasha talks about how she’s evolved as a musician and songwriter on Roll With Me. She describes that her new songs feature her best singing to date, and while her voice is higher now, she retains the positive energy that is her trademark. Natasha’s upcoming album may have songs that go through the tunnel of darkness, but at the end of it, we get an uplifting message.
Playing through this whole video is some energetic, upbeat music. A strong drumbeat is topped by shimmering guitar and piano chords. At the end, we hear an explosive chorus as Natasha belts:
Don’t you wanna feel love?
Talking ’bout that real love
It’s a small preview, but we’re certainly excited to hear the rest of this song!
Hear a preview of “Real Love” in the video below:

We previously knew of 15 songs that could appear on Natasha’s new album, Roll With Me. All the new titles were recently registered on ASCAP, and Natasha wrote all of these with Linda Perry. Of that original list, only “Party Bus” and “Ten To Zero” did not make the cut for her album. “Feel You In My Life” seems to have been renamed “I Feel You.”
One new title not on that list is “Can’t Let Go.”
Natasha’s last album, Strip Me, came out an astonishing nine years ago, in December 2010. Since then, Natasha spent the better part of the past seven years writing and recording, releasing plenty of songs here and there over the years. Her latest new releases were the singles “Let Go,” “Love Looks Like,” and “Hey Boy” in 2017. That last song Natasha wrote with Linda Perry, with whom she recorded her entire new album throughout 2018. Natasha is now part of Linda’s label and management company, We Are Hear.
In February 2018, Natasha said she was “really determined to get some of the best music and art that I’ve made out and into your ears”. After working in the studio off and on for several years, Natasha started over in spring 2018, this time working exclusively with Linda Perry. The new music is said to be soulful and have a “disco-retro vibe,” and Natasha recently called it “life-changing.”
One month ago, Natasha recorded the “Roller Skate” music video while in London and Berlin. Last week, Natasha also recorded a music video for “Kick It.” We’re still waiting to see both videos.
The Final Countdown
Natasha’s new album – her first since 2010’s Strip Me – will be out on August 30th. With “Roller Skate,” “Kick It,” and “Everybody Come Together” all out now, we have three excellent previews to overplay until Roll With Me comes out in just a few days.
It’s exciting to have a one more taste of Natasha’s new album, and we can’t wait to hear the rest of “Real Love” in full! Catch up on all we know about the long-awaited fourth album, and enjoy the new song preview! Keep checking back here for all the latest Natasha Bedingfield music news.
