iTunes Review

Former Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester came to prominence as a vocalist on Cobra Starship's 2009 track "Good Girls Go Bad," a collaboration that led to a major-label deal and a pop album that never saw the light of day. So the independently released Heartstrings is her proper debut. It's a set of cosmopolitan roots-rock anchored by Meester's airy, slightly twangy vocals. Think Ingrid Michaelson by way of Carly Simon, sprinkled with shimmering guitars and earthy production. Reverb-drenched chords add some shoegaze nuance to tracks like "Heartstrings" and "Dreaming," while "On My Side" is pulsing rock soaked in SoCal sunshine.

Great voice!

Even though it's titled as pop, it's really more alternative. You can hear how she feels when she sings. Beautiful voice. The title track is the perfect first single. Buy it!

OMG The long wait is over😱

I've been waiting for this album finally it is coming out. I so love the songs. Inlove with her 💕

In case you only knew her from Gossip Girl, here's some background: she used to sing EDM-infused pop which was GREAT but her debut album never saw the light of day because Universal Music Group screwed her over smh what a mistake but who cares now she's here to slay indie and I am LIVING for it! Heartstrings is so hauntingly perfect and I'm 150% sure the rest of the album will deliver just as much if not more. I am so ready.

Citing a childhood passion for music, she signed with Universal Records in 2009 and made her official debut several months later, contributing guest vocals to Cobra Starship's "Good Girls Go Bad." The song became Cobra Starship's biggest hit, cracking the Top Ten that summer and positioning Meester...
