Rookie

Rookie
Release date : Jul. 10, 2015

The title track from the coming album, “Rookie,” is a song about… not being a rookie. “It’s actually the opposite of what the title suggests,” Shepard says. “It’s about a person who’s been around the block… around all the blocks! The chorus says ‘I’m not a rookie,’ and it really conveys this feeling that I’m a ‘bad-ass’ who’s going to throw it down.” Bad-ass? Maybe playing the Devil’s girlfriend in Faust had some kind of lasting effect after all. In any case, if you want to hear just how upbeat Shepard has gotten in the years since her previous album, there’s just one course for a fan to follow: Baby, don’t you kick her start slow.
