And, as has become her habit, she dropped the music video the same day.
The new song is called “Worth It,” and it’s about a woman realizing her self-worth and that she doesn’t have to settle for second best in a man.
On Facebook, Danielle wrote that she hopes the new song “reminds you how strong and beautiful you are.”
“Worth It” is one of seven tracks from the new album that Danielle had a hand in writing it. Her co-writers for the song were Jeff Pardo and Molly Reed.
That’s one reason her new album is called “I Don’t Believe We’ve Met.” Danielle didn’t write any of the songs on her 2013 debut album, which came on the heels of her Season 4 victory on The Voice.
“As a fan of other artists, I love when they’re singing about true stories that happened to them,” Danielle says in a behind-the-song video released with “Worth It.” “And I never once look at them and think, ‘Oh, God, that’s too real’ I think that’s freakin’ awesome that they’re not afraid to talk about that story.
“People relate to that more and I wanted to be that artist,” she adds. “Now being into songwriting, it helps me be more real and I can be a part of those stories instead of trying to tell somebody to write that story for me and hopefully they’ll nail every secret of mine.”
“Worth It” was sitting at number 30 on iTunes on Friday 12 hours after its release. Danielle’s lead single from the new album, “Sway,” is at 59 on the most recent Billboard County Airplay chart, down from a peak of 51.
That new album is due out Dec. 1 and is available for pre-order.
