Two weeks ago, Natasha Bedingfield began teasing a new song, “Lighthearted.” At the time, we didn’t know how soon we’d get to hear it. Thankfully, it’s already here! Natasha shared the new single today, promising a music video – featuring a choreographed dance – soon.
“Lighthearted” opens with some high, airy vocals before moving into a chilled-out, serene soundscape. Natasha describes being in a moment of pain and darkness, but she’s not letting it hold her down. She may cry in the shower for a bit, but she’ll make it to morning. It’s a gentle and uplifting song that reminds us that we can get through hard times. This can apply perfectly to the past year we’ve been living through, but there’s a light at the end of that tunnel.
At present, it seems that “Lighthearted” is a standalone single. However, Natasha has been in the studio frequently lately, so we hope a full album is on the horizon. It’s been nearly two year since her last record, Roll With Me, so we’re ready for more where that came from!

More From Natasha
In August 2019, Natasha Bedingfield released Roll With Me, her first album in nine years. It launched the singles “Roller Skate,” “Kick It,” and “Everybody Come Together,” as well as a North American tour that fall. Following such a long gap between albums, Roll With Me was a welcome return, and one of our favorite albums of 2019.
Last year in June, Natasha shared a song called “Together In This,” which was part of the children’s movie, Jungle Beat. That song was written by her good friend, musician Jonas Myrin.
Just five months ago, Natasha shared a live performance of a new song called “The United States Of Us.” She suggested that an official release of the song would happen, but didn’t indicate when. She co-wrote it with Jonas Myrin, the same writer of “Together In This.”
What do you think of “Lighthearted”? We’re loving it so far, and we can’t wait to see its music video. And after hearing a live recording of “The United States Of Us” last January, perhaps we have a full album to look forward to? We sure hope so!
