Melody Thornton is a multi-platinum singer-songwriter and former member of the Pussycat Dolls. Not too long ago, she released a beautiful soul ballad, entitled, “Love Will Return”, about a young woman who awaits her lover’s return.

“I was standing in my kitchen, looking out the window at a scenic view of the hills in L.A. and started humming a melody I’d never heard. I started to add lyrics and in 20 minutes I had the song ‘Love Will Return’ mapped out. It was my favorite song that only existed in my head.” – Melody Thornton
‘Love Will Return’ was inspired by Melody Thornton’s ancestral roots in Phoenix, Arizona, as well as her Mexican and African-American heritage. The attractive tune, perfumed with southern soul and classic R&B, serves as one of her biggest musical moments yet.
“The song plays like a Tarantino film score while calling to mind the commanding voices of Nancy Sinatra, Shirley Bassey, and Eartha Kitt.”
‘Love Will Return’, well-engineered and nurtured ripely, is gorgeous like the scenic view that inspired its melodies. Also, the cinematic tune possesses the late ‘60s- and early ‘70s-inspired instrumentation flavored with grand horns, layered harmonies, and tribal woodwind. Furthermore, “Love Will Return” serves as a tasty appetizer to Thornton’s upcoming (early 2020) project.
“The entire evolution of the song was magic. I didn’t have to explain what I envisioned to the producer too much when I finally decided to record it. He felt it himself and delivered an incredible finished product. There’s just something spiritual about it. It moves me in a way like no other song I’ve written before. I can’t explain it. I don’t mean that in an arrogant way. The songs are like my babies and ‘Love Will Return’ is my Kim Kardashian.” – Melody Thornton
