Kate Hudson’s Glorious

It’s no secret or surprise that I am a huge Kate Hudson fan. From her rom-coms like “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days” to her more serious roles in films like “The Skeleton Key” she’s someone that can always get by butt in a movie theater seat. When she released her book “Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways To Love Your Body” I was super excited to go to a book signing for it. So, it was a no brainer that I wanted to check out her new album, especially when I was able to order an autographed copy online.

In my gay opinion, her new album, Glorious, is such a disappointment. The day the album dropped, I settled in for a good old fashioned hate listen. Expecting some heavy Auto-Tuning, cheesy lyrics, and overly produced rock music to cover weak vocals. I was hoping for some laughs and a couple eye rolls. No offense, but I thought, how good can Kate Hudson sing?

Shockingly, the answer is pretty damn good. Her vocals are strong and they don’t sound electronically enhanced. The production is solid but with her vocals front and center, not masked by the musicians. The lyrics are well-developed, relatable and co-written by Kate. Glorious went from being an album, I assumed would have songs that pop-up randomly on my USB, to one that I’ll seek out from time to time. The album sounds like Modern Country and Southern Rock had a Pop baby who’s obsessed with Broadway.

The only thing worse than getting an album that’s much better than expected, is being wrong. So, let it be known that Kate Hudson can do it all. Actress, author and now singer/songwriter. She’s the full package, damn it! The only thing she didn’t do was get her mom, Goldie Hawn, to duet with her on the new album. I guess nobody’s perfect, not even Kate Hudson.
