Michelle Branch clocked hits such as «All You Wanted,» «Everywhere» and «Are You Happy Now?» back in the early ’00s, and won a Grammy for «The Game of Love» with Santana. But until this year, she hadn’t made an album since her duo with Jessica Harp, The Wreckers, put out ‘Stand Still, Look Pretty’ in 2006. She stopped by Vevo to chat about her new record, ‘Hopeless Romantic,» which features the video «Best You Ever.» In our news interview, Branch talks about songwriting inspirations that come with «ending an 11-year marriage and dating for the first time,» and «the excitement» and perils of being in a relationship.» The Nashville resident worked with her friend Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, and he encouraged her to play more guitar and steer the music towards the tougher rock ‘n’ roll sound she was hearing for her new songs. Branch says learned a lot about herself by writing ‘Hopeless Romantic.’ «It’s always interesting when you write a song and you look at it six months later and say ‘Oh, I was really feeling that way, I was really in that spot.'»
