The Picturebooks have teamed up with Lzzy Hale (Halestorm) for a new song titled “Rebel.” You can find an official video for that below. The track will appear on the band’s upcoming album “The Major Minor Collective.”
The Picturebooks commented:
“‘Rebel‘ started out as an idea with Lzzy in mind and quickly surpassed everybody´s expectations. Lzzy tapped into something really special with both lyrics and vocal performance and when we heard her voice on the track for the first time we were totally blown away! Give this one a listen at full volume and be ready to be floored.”
“This project came into my life at a time when I really needed it. The pandemic stole a huge part of my life, and my identity. I was forced to look myself in the mirror and figure out who I am without that missing piece.
I had to remind myself that no matter what is happening outside…the flame that burns inside of me is still alive. Writing these lyrics was like drawing a road map to guide myself back to who I am. No one can do it for me, no one can save me but myself. In order to do that, I have to start a revolution inside my soul, and be a rebel from the inside out. This song is my war cry.
The instrumental music was so inspiring that by the third listen the melody naturally spilled out like some alien hybrid of all my influences.
I am so grateful to The Picturebooks for bringing me into their world and giving me the freedom to express my personal journey of rediscovering myself. And I know that, in times like these, this song will bring the listener hope for the future and the confidence to survive whatever that future becomes.”
