It’s been seven years since Fefe Dobson first debuted on the music scene, but her name never really altogether disappeared from sight.
There’d always been rumblings of Dobson’s presence, whether as a result of her lost tracks being serviced to other artists (“Don’t Let It Go To Your Head” to Jordin Sparks, for instance) or the ill-fated 2006 sophomore attempt, Sunday Love (which never saw the light of day).
“Ghost” is a very good, very catchy pop song, featuring some growling hooks and a rather menacing bridge (“What’s her name? What’s she like? Would you leave her in the middle of the night?”)
It sounds sort of like an electronic take on a Kelly Clarkson number, though perhaps a little sassier. The video is equally so, as Dobson goes ghoulish (and also quite sexy on the hood of a car!) to try and get revenge on her dirty scoundrel of an ex. I approve of this sort of thing.
The follow-up to Dobson’s debut, Joy, will be released later this summer. Fingers crossed!
