Kelleigh Bannen is back with new music, and a rocking “Deluxe” single off her upcoming studio album. Known for nailing emotionally-heavy and feisty uptempos (whichever route she decides to take with each song), Bannen and co-writer Danielle Blakey put a badass, sassy twist to a love story on this tune.
Drawing comparisons to an over-the-top hotel stay and lavish lifestyle choices, the song paints the picture of a relationship that one just can’t seem to ever get enough of.
“Pulling off exit 105, turning in the parking lot of an old motel / Sign says AC and cable TV no extra charge / And I’m like damn that’s kinda like you / You love like a free upgrade room with a view of the pool / It’s open til sunset only the best for the best”
With a listen to Bannen’s new tune, we figured out some qualities of this extravagant lover she sings of.
1. He is a 22% tipper
2. Treats the lady to a buffet dinner on a date night
3. Doesn’t scrimp on the good stuff
The end product of this luxurious elaborateness? A “gold-plated” and “first-rated” relationship, as Bannen sings proudly of.
Sonically, “Deluxe” could fall into the same family of songs Bannen’s “You Are What You Love,” “Sorry On The Rocks” and “Famous.” But, her latest release has vocal deliveries that augment the edginess and plausibility of this almost too-good-to-be-true relationship. “I just loved the idea for this song, about being a love with a little extra, and still being very relatable to so many people. I had the title for a while and finally was able to write and record it. I’m excited to be able to share it with my fans,” said Bannen in a recent press release.
Kudos to the two brilliant writers and producer Jaren Johnston (of The Cadillac Three) for giving what would seem like a plain vanilla happy love story; a fresh, hifalutin twist! Can all our relationships be this fancy too? Damn!
