Here’s a nice throwback! A whole decade ago, Natasha Bedingfield was a fresh young singer from the UK, and she had only just released her debut album Unwritten. Hits like “Single,” “These Words,” and the anthemic title track brought her the respect and admiration she deserved, and she has had a successful career since then.
But with an album filled with gem after gem, there were some songs that had to be left off. Now, 10 years later, we finally get to hear one of those forgotten demos. “Save My Love” was recorded for Unwritten, but ultimately did not appear on the album. It’s a mid tempo ballad, led by a picked guitar and backed by ethereal strings. Give it a listen:
It’s a lovely song, but unfortunately the demo we have cuts off before the end. Hopefully the complete version will appear in the future.
Not many of Natasha’s leftover demos have leaked over the years, but the few that have are all stunning. We’re glad we got to hear “Save My Love,” even if it’s an incomplete demo version. Unwritten was an incredible album, so feel free to complete this 2004 flashback with a listen to the whole record. That’s what we’re going to do, at least.
Natasha is currently working on her 4th studio album. It should be out sometime in 2015, so be ready for some more musical masterpieces coming soon!
