SINGLE PREMIERE: Michael Bublé – “It’s A Beautiful Day” (+ Lyrics)

That's what makes you "Beautiful".

That’s what makes you “Beautiful”.

Our favorite Canadian crooner is back! 37-year-old Michael Bublé returns with his first regular studio album in three-and-a-half years, To Be Loved, which is out on April 23 here in the States. Of course, his 2011 seasonal release, Christmas, rocked the charts once again this past holiday season, with two singles from it being released to radio: “Cold December Night” and a virtual duet with Bing Crosby, “White Christmas”. They both did particularly well on his core format, adult contemporary radio. I’m sure you caught his NBC special as well. However, we’ve been due for some original music from the guy for a few years now. It’s been over two years since “Hollywood” was released and I loved that one a lot. It peaked at #1 on my chart for two weeks, his third song to make it to the top. Now, our first taste of some new selections from the album comes via the first single from the effort, a sunny little single called “It’s A Beautiful Day”. It’s one of several original songs on the album, which includes duets with Bryan Adams, Naturally 7 and Reese Witherspoon. There are some interesting cover choices as well, though it appears we’re getting more original content from him this time around than on previous albums. More information about that is on iTunes, which you’ll see a link for below.

This song essentially picks up where “Haven’t Met You Yet” left off, except that now Bublé has met the girl, it sounds like she ain’t all that. She wants to be friends, but he’s played that game before and he’s heard it all. Plus, she ends up running off! Rude. I mean, too bad for her. Even if this ends up being your new soft rock break-up song, it’s surprisingly cheerful. He’s happy that she’s out of his life. He wants to be free. It’s like everything around him turns into a musical where he’s the star. I can see the video already. He struts through the streets, patrons twirling out of restaurants with plates in hand, cyclists in formation on each side of him. It would be a flash mob like no other. Hey, maybe it will happen. In the end, I guess he got his wish. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood and Mr. Rogers didn’t even need to stop by. How charming. He has a smooth mix of drum, guitar, piano and some strings behind him at times, but it all blends together into a musical masterpiece that will please all of Bublé’s fans. I mean, how can you not smile when he’s smiling too?

Look for this one to, not shockingly at all, be a huge seller and a good-sized hit on the adult contemporary survey. If “Yet” could crossover to CHR radio, maybe this one will have a chance closer to the summer months. The format’s taking more chances now then when that prior single was a hit, so it bodes well for him. Until then, get your fill with the link and lyrics below. Have a “beautiful” time listening!

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY

[VERSE 1]
I don’t know why
You think that you could hold me
When you can’t get by by yourself
And I don’t know who
Would ever want to tear the seam of someone’s dream
Baby, it’s fine, you said that we should just be friends
Well, I came up with that line and I’m sure
That it’s for the best
If you ever change your mind, don’t hold your breath

[PRE-CHORUS]
‘Cause you may not believe
That baby, I’m relieved
When you said goodbye, my whole world shined

[CHORUS]
Hey hey hey
It’s a beautiful day and I can’t stop myself from smiling
If I’m drinking, then I’m buying
And I know there’s no denying
It’s a beautiful day, the sun is up, the music’s playing
And even if it started raining
You won’t hear this boy complaining
‘Cause I’m glad that you’re the one that got away
It’s a beautiful day

[VERSE 2]
It’s my turn to fly, so girls, get in line
‘Cause I’m easy, no playing this guy like a fool
Now I’m alright
Might’ve had me caged before, but not tonight

[PRE-CHORUS]
‘Cause you may not believe
That baby, I’m relieved
This fire inside, it burns too bright
I don’t want to say “so long”, I just want to say “goodbye”

[CHORUS]
It’s a beautiful day and I can’t stop myself from smiling
If I’m drinking, then I’m buying
And I know there’s no denying
It’s a beautiful day, the sun is up, the music’s playing
And even if it started raining
You won’t hear this boy complaining
‘Cause I’m glad that you’re the one who got away

[MIDDLE 8 + END]
‘Cause if you ever think I’ll take up
My time with thinking of our break-up
Then, you’ve got another thing coming your way
‘Cause it’s a beautiful day
Beautiful day
Oh, baby, any day that you’re gone away
It’s a beautiful day
