New Music Monday: Jesse, Oh Yesee! Jesse McCartney’s New Single “Better With You”

I stole that title from Girl’s Life magazine because I am really 11 at heart.

Jesse McCartney has a new single.  It’s called “Better With You”.  It has an impeccable mix.  Jesse strums an acoustic guitar and sings about a girl who makes his life better.  The chorus drops into a techno-lite beat accented by banjo.   It’s a banjo moment!! The single comes three years after Jesse’s excellent In Technicolor album.  Is it too early to call this his most delightful song since “Beautiful Soul”?

“Better With You” comes in two flavors:  radio and acoustic.  Both are oh so dreamy.

The song features a country crossover, but let’s give Jesse credit making it as a poppy singer- songwriter before trying the whole R&B thing.  Although we had some fun with that phase, too.  This actually feels like returning to his roots: songs like “Beautiful Soul”, “Just So You Know” and “Bleeding Love”.  In case you forgot about Jesse McCartney’s talent, read this.

Album and tour are coming!  JMacDaily made this hilarious graphic.  Check them out for your daily JMac needs.

And here are the lyrics because, like I said, I’m 11.

[Verse 1]
I know it’s ugly turning on the news
There’s people fighting over point of view
Sometimes it’s like there’s nothing left to lose
And I don’t know what to do
But I know it’s better with you[Chorus]
I was a wreck when you came along
When there was nothing left
You showed me the best
I’m still a mess but you hold on
Don’t know just why you do
But I know I’m better with you
But I know I’m better with you
But I know I’m better with you
But I know I’m better with you

[Verse 2]
For every life there is a silent cry
For every day there is a darker night
Sometimes this life doesn’t treat us right
And I don’t know what to do
But I know it’s better with you

[Chorus]
I was a wreck when you came along
When there was nothing left
You showed me the best
I’m still a mess but you hold on
Don’t know just why you do
But I know I’m better with you
But I know I’m better with you
But I know I’m better with you

[Bridge]
Wherever you are, it’s never as dark
Whenever I start slipping, you make all the difference
Been there from the start, no matter how hard
Whatever piece is missing, you know how to fix it

[Chorus]
I was a wreck when you came along
When there was nothing left
You showed me the best
I’m still a mess but you hold on
Don’t know just why you do
But I know I’m better with you
But I know I’m better with you
But I know I’m better with you
