Hopeless Romantic

Album: Hopeless Romantic (2017)
  • Here Michelle Branch reflects on the repercussions of falling in love with some dude.

    Everything is dangerous when it's just the two of us
    Jumping in over our heads.

    "The song is about the push and pull of a romantic relationship," Branch told Entertainment Weekly. "There's always a kind of fear when you're entering a relationship with someone; of, 'Where will this go? Will I get hurt?'"
  • Branch's guy, Patrick Carney of the Black Keys, lent a hand to the writing and production of the song.
  • The video was the first one that Branch had filmed in 13 years. The singer asked her friend, photographer Brian Higbee, to direct the clip. "His stuff always skews a little bit darker," Branch said. "I wanted this to be darker. I haven't had a video out in so long, so I wanted to push the envelope in that sense, and not have something that was 'cheery' or what people expect from me."
