Lindsey Stirling's "The Upside" Featuring Elle King is Exactly What the World Needs Right Now
It's Monday. Recent events in the news make the world’s future seem bleak and hopeless. Looking for 'The Upside' to it all? Lindsey Stirling’s newest single, featuring multi-platinum songwriter and singer Elle King, dropped on Friday, and it’s exactly the type of inspirational track we all need to get through the week.
Like a peaceful guardian for love and justice, Stirling effortlessly swoops in with new music that touches the very heart and soul of the human condition. Not all heroes wear capes, but sometimes they happen to have a trusty violin on hand that will make you get on your feet and dance your troubles away.
Music & Mojitos is completely feeling what Stirling is serving up on “The Upside.” Ahead of the highly-anticipated release of her fifth studio album Artemis on September 6, Stirling’s signature sound is on full display, with King’s divine rock and roll edge shining on vocals. The release follows “The Underground,” which premiered on June 21, and currently has over an impressive 6 million streams.
Stirling’s latest song delivers a message of hope and prosperity. With a sultry chorus from King that blasts “Don't you know that I'm holding on and I'm upside down/On my way to the upside now/ I'm on my way, on my way out/I don't know if I'm right side up/I'm inside out but I won't give up/On my way, I'm on my way,” listeners can’t help but feel inspired to not lose faith, even in the darkest of days.
“The Upside” builds momentum to Stirling’s upcoming tour, which will see her performing for her diverse fanbase all across the globe. Stirling will start in sunny Costa Mesa, California before hitting up Mexico City. She will then pack her bags and travel to European cities including Frankfurt, Munich, Milan, Kraków, Warsaw, Berlin, and Zurich. If that wasn’t enough, Stirling is also set to play London’s Hammersmith Apollo.
Fans in the United States are also in for a memorable treat. Stirling will be making a special appearance at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre on September 5. With Artemis coming out the following day, it will be an unforgettable evening in the Big Apple, marking the beginning of another extraordinary chapter in Stirling’s journey.
