Ahead of her acclaimed forthcoming album, Joy’All, prolific and beloved singer/songwriter Jenny Lewis has released another single. “Giddy Up” follows the irresistible, country-disco-toned, career benchmark “Psychos,” which landed on our Best Songs of March list and remains one of the best tracks of the year so far.
In no surprising turn, Lewis reinvents herself again on “Giddy Up,” which, despite its title, is not the anthemic honky tonk tune you might be expecting. Instead, she takes a more composed approach, plugging a story of fleeting romantic energy into an airy, falsetto-driven arrangement with one of the tastiest bass lines of the year so far. “Take a chance on a little romance / We’re both adults / Take a chance / The stake is high, the whistle blows,” Lewis sings.
