Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Beth Hart has debuted the first track off of her new album Better Than Home, due for release on April 14th. Listen to “Might As Well Smile” via Wall Street Journal.
An immediate mood-booster, the song features Beth’s signature raspy, soul-drenched vocals set against a triumphant chorus and a sunny melody. The song is the perfect introduction to Better Than Home, an album that sees Beth peeling back the intimate layers of her personal pain to transform it all into something empowering and positive. “Might As Well Smile” will be available on iTunes Tuesday February 10th as an instant grat track if you pre-order the album (click here for pre-orders).

Highly revered for her visceral vocals, dynamic range and impassioned live performances, Hart has been leveling audiences for the past two decades. Throughout her illustrious career, she has collected numerous accolades, a Grammy Award, #1 and Top 10 positions on the Billboard Blues Chart, a standing ovation from President Obama at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors and admirers like Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa, Slash and Buddy Guy. While she has achieved much success in her professional life, it has been no secret that Hart’s personal life has included intense periods of struggle, from the loss of her sister to AIDS, to drug use and family strife, to an eventual bipolar diagnosis that was both frightening and liberating. The ultimate conqueror, Hart bounced back at full creative strength and is prepared to own and share her story on Better Than Home, an album that is surely her most profound body of work to date.
Hart’s extensive 2015 world tour is already selling out venues across the globe and will kick off on February 14th at LA’s El Rey Theatre. Click here for more tour dates.
