Melissa Etheridge's new studio album, 4th Street Feeling, doesn't hit stores until September 4th but she is giving fans a taste of what's to come with a stream of the song "Falling Up." Her camp sent over this background on the track:

"Falling Up," Etheridge says, was written after a long night out. "I was getting ready to go to bed and I picked up my guitar and it was in D-tuning," she recalls. "And I just started coming up with the music. I thought, 'Isn't that fun? I just want to clap my hands to that song. I'm gonna write to that.'"

So the next day Etheridge fleshed out the song. She says the track was one way she could express her lifelong affection for "roots" music. "That's where I've came from and I've always loved," the native Kansan says. "The first bands that I was in were country bands. I was singing Tammy Wynette songs and Loretta Lynn." The song was also a positive emotional release for the songwriter and mother of four. "It was a feel-good thing," she explains. "It's about me moving on, feeling good, I'm falling up. I might be learning these lessons hard. They might be coming hard and fast to me but I'm falling up. I'm going somewhere good." Listen to the song here.
