Jesse McCartney Drops Mushy Album About Soon-to-be Wife Katie Peterson
Reading Time: 3 minutes
The day has finally come where we can say Jesse McCartney has released a new album. New Stage is his first album since 2014. This new album speaks directly on the new chapter of life as he prepares to marry girlfriend Katie Peterson. If you liked “Beautiful Soul” you’re going to love the romantic vibes and beautiful lyrics in this one.
Jesse McCartney Shares Maturity on New Album
You definitely remember this singer from the early 2000s when his song “Beautiful Soul” was a hit. Following his success, he guest starred on Hannah Montana, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, played Theodore in Alvin and The Chipmunks, and even more.
When he rose to fame, it felt like he was all over both the internet and television. After his childhood success, McCartney took time to broaden his acting career. During that time he took a break from music, but he revived his music career last year on The Masked Singer as Turtle.
A lot has happened to this singer since “Beautiful Soul” dominated the charts. He is now 34 years-old and is getting married to Peterson later this month. He’s definitely a very different point in life than turning 17 years old. But that’s exactly what McCartney hoped to encompass in his comeback album.
“It [also] follows a hopeless romantic who finally finds himself in the relationship of his dreams,” said McCartney in his Instagram post. “It has taken family, friends, and a whole lot of learning experiences to grow into the person I am today; someone who can look back, reflect, and feel the deepest sense of gratitude for the extremely fortunate life I have been given. I’m pulling back the curtain a little bit and giving you guys an idea of what it’s been like for me.”
New Stage in Life, Same Beautiful Voice
Out of all of the songs on this new album, I think “Discovering You” is my favorite of them all. It’s a tune that directly talks about how his relationship with his fiance began in her one room apartment, but it was the best thing he ever did. I found that a lot of the songs on this album draw you into them. His vocals and mellow guitar playing absolutely suck you in.
All of the songs on New Stage hold the same lyrical strength that “Beautiful Soul” has. If anything, this album just really shows how much he’s matured not only as a person but as a musical artist. I seriously don’t think this man’s voice has aged much at all. His voice is almost identical to how it was. That is, other than the fact that he now sings in a lower register.
If you have not listened to this album yet, I highly suggest it. It is relaxing and has some of the best lyrical structure that I’ve heard in awhile. I really hope this album takes off because I feel like these songs have the potential to be as great as “Beautiful Soul” once was.
