Pocketful Of Sunshine
Released: Jan 2008
"Take me away/ a secret place/ a sweet escape," sings Natasha Bedingfield on the title track to her sophomore effort, and with crisp beats and a handful of upbeat, chirpy songs, she's created just such a place. The centerpiece of this set is "Freckles," a tune about stepping outside your circumstances long enough to come to terms with your true self, and it sounds as though Natasha has done quite a bit of that, as Pocketful of Sunshine brims with a poised, carefree exuberance. Other infectious favorites include "Happy," "Piece of Your Heart" and "Say It Again."
