Christina Perri

If you cried like a baby at the end of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” you owe a large part of your runny mascara to singer/songwriter Christina Perri and her poignant ballad  “A Thousand Years,” which closed the film.

Now, after an difficult wait for new music, Perri is back with a ferociously honest track called “Human,” which is slated to be the first single off her as-yet-untitled new album, scheduled to be out in spring 2014. You may want to grab some tissues because it’s a tear jerker!

Listen to Christina Perri’s “Human” after the jump.

Produced by Martin Johnson, “Human” is an easy, yet powerful ballad about the pressure to be perfect in an unforgiving world.

Excuse me while I shriek with excitement (and tears!) at how amazing this song is. We love the important message and gorgeous vocals. This song is a welcome break from some of the new pop music out today. We can’t wait to hear the rest of the album in 2014!
