Jewel Releases New Song “Grateful”
- American singer-songwriter Jewel has unveiled a new song “Grateful” following the Lost in America's theme song "No More Tears", which was released last November.
The track will appear on her upcoming as-yet-untitled twelfth studio album. It was written by Jewel and Sam Hollander. Produced by Butch Walker.
“Anxiety has been a teacher to me,” Jewel wrote on Instagram. “It has caused me to learn there are only two basic states of being: dilated and contracted, and that every thought, feeling and action led to one of those two states. Fear, anxiety, jealousy, anger, greed all led to contraction. Joy, curiosity, observation, love, gratitude all led to dilation.”
“I learned that if I was headed into a panic attack, I could hack my way into a dilated state by focusing very hard on a different feeling,” she added. “I chose gratitude. It’s amazing how profound such a single thing can be if you feel it deeply enough. It’s a practice I still use today. I’m pleased to release this new song inspired by the transformative capability of a simple feeling.”
She recently raised $550,000 for at-risk and homeless youth at her Live From San Quarantine: A Livestream Concert, which has a longterm goal of getting 5,000 people to pledge $1 a day for a year.
