Well it looks like “Touch” IS going to be Natasha Bedingfield’s first single. I thought it was just a promotional single but the song has already been serviced to U.S. radio and she’s now performed it twice live on US TV. Sounds like the single treatment to me!
Now all we need is a video! Nat’s most recent performance was on Fox’s reality dancing competition, So You Think You Can Dance. Dancing with her on stage are some of the show’s contestants, which is pretty cool. Vocally, I think her performance on Ellen Degeneres’ show was a bit better but this song is a pop/dance track and Bedingfield is REALLY hustling on this stage. I think that talking bit of the song makes for a rough transition into the actual song but when she belts out those big notes, she really hits it and sounds phenom. At least she’s singing live!, right? The choreography works well with the song, although it seems to throw Bedingfield off a couple of times. All in all, a solid performance. “Touch” was produced by Julian Bunetta and Steve Kipner. Also working Bedingfield on the new album we have Brian Kennedy, Wyclef Jean, Sam Sparro, Mike Elizondo and Ryan Tedder.
