Oakland soulstress Goapele is celebrating the release of her fifth studio album Strong As Glass, which hit stores this week. Following the fun and funky single “Hey Boy,” the singer has now released a stream of the album’s title track for fans and new listeners to enjoy.
Over elegant keys and soft percussion, Goapele opens her heart to the world, but shares her understanding that while she’s a strong, courageous woman, she still needs to be treated with gentle care.
“I’m only as strong as glass, they say I’m built to last, but I could break,” she softly sings on the chorus as the tempo picks up and she belts out the commanding lyrics.
Strong As Glass is currently available on iTunes. Take a listen to the title track below:
