Artist: Emma Bunton
Song: “Too Many Teardrops”
Album: My Happy Place (Due in stores April 12th)
Two weeks ago, Emma Bunton released “Baby Please Don’t Stop,” a beautiful slice of demure, vintage pop—and the first single from her soon-to-be released fourth album My Happy Place—to genuine enthusiasm and acclaim. Now, with the reveal of “Too Many Teardrops,” another composition from her forthcoming project, excitement for My Happy Place will only increase.
The teaser track, along with “Baby Please Don’t Stop,” operate as the only original songs to feature on My Happy Place, which is Bunton’s first collection of covers. As such, the pressure for those two entries to deliver on Bunton’s previous standard of excellence is understandably high.
Bunton goes two-for-two with “Too Many Teardrops.”
A strike of 1960s session pop finesse executed in a dramatic, Italo-western soundtrack style, the composition fits Bunton like a veritable hand-in-glove. “Too Many Teardrops,” like “Baby Please Don’t Stop” beforehand, assures listeners that its parent album will be a fine, detailed affair from the Spice Girl.
