Here’s Leighton Meester’s New Single

Leighton Meester (or as she’s forever known in my TV-loving heart, Blair Waldorf) is set to release a nine-track album on October 28. She debuted her new song “Heartstrings” yesterday and I’m totally intrigued. Instead of the bubbly, formulaic ditties that lots of actresses-turned-singers fall victim to, Meester’s song has a thoughtful, melancholy vibe to it that I can totally get behind. She’s ventured into music before with Cobra Starships’ “Good Girls Go Bad,” the movie “Country Strong,” and a kick-ass Fleetwood Mac cover, but this is her first album. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the tracks! [Cosmopolitan]
