Bethany Cosentino Debuts “Easy”
Bethany Cosentino has shared new single “Easy,” a track off her debut solo album, Natural Disaster, available July 28th, via Concord Records. The track follows the Best Coast front woman’s previous single “It’s Fine.”
“I’m not someone who can sit still for long without my brain going into overdrive, but when I’m just sitting alone in my car, I feel peace,” explains Cosentino. “I had been thinking a lot about where my life was at 35 and how different it was from where I pictured I’d be. I’ve been writing love songs for a really long time, but this is the first love song I’ve ever written that feels … healthy. When I’m spinning and doubting myself and my life choices, tripping out on how dark the world feels, I remember the unconditional love of my partner and it snaps me back into reality and reminds me of what actually matters. When you’re not used to healthy, respectful love, it can be difficult to accept it and I find myself trying to push it away sometimes. This song is about accepting that love into your life and it’s by far the most vulnerable I’ve ever really allowed myself to get when it comes to writing about love. Love should make you feel good, as corny as that sounds!”
Cosentino hopes that the album might help others find their own way toward transformation and renewal. “When I look at all the artists I find most influential, the common thread is that they take risks and continue exploring different versions of themselves,” she says. “My goal is to keep growing and challenging myself and living outside any kind of box, to keep on evolving as an artist and a person. And if anyone’s feeling stagnant, I hope this record inspires them to see what else life has to offer. It’s really scary to take those risks and make big changes in your life, but what you find on the other side can be so magical.”
