Single Review: Joan Osborne – “Thirsty For My Tears”

Singer/songwriter Joan Osborne, best known for her triple-platinum 1995 Mercury debut album, Relish, is back with a new single titled “Thirsty For My Tears.”

With its upbeat guitar picks, rough-and-tumble arrangement, and appealingly vocal, “Thirsty For My Tears” is likely to find a more responsive audience on country radio rather than pop or adult contemporary, but it’s still a fun song that highlights Osborne’s noticeable growth as a songwriter. That being said, “Thirsty For My Tears” doesn’t quite reach the same heights of her  biggest and most memorable hits (“One of Us”/”St. Teresa”). But, thanks to crafty lyrics and a sing-a-long chorus, it is a solid attempt to recapture that magic.

“Thirsty For My Tears,” out now on iTunes, is the lead single from Osborne’s forthcoming album, Love and Hate, which is slated for release on April 7 via Entertainment One.
