For a pessimist, she's pretty optimistic (see what I did there?).
Titled “Over Yet,” the new song is ’80s-style pop bop that has lyrics as uplifting as the music it's played to.
She sings: “It’s the right time/ To come alive/ Baby if you wanna try/ To get out of your head, yes/ Break a sweat / Baby tell yourself it ain't over yet.”
The lyrics are a stark contrast to the first few songs we've heard from Petals For Armor including “Simmer" and "Leave It Alone.” But there's a reason for that. With each new bundle of songs Williams releases, she's moving from dark to light and it's safe to say we're getting a glimpse of the light with “Over Yet.”
“I don’t think you can get to the good s**t without digging through the bad first,” she told Rolling Stone in a new interview. “It’s like you are trying to find the center of the Earth — how can you find that without cracking through limestone and heavy, hard things?”
Like all her lyric videos so far, fans are given a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the song. You'll get a glimpse of Williams' album cover shoot, among other photo shoots, in the lyric video for “Over Yet.”
Petals For Armor arrives May 8!
