Veteran rockers Lifehouse have been around the music scene for a over decade and they don’t have plans to slow down anytime soon, what with the release of their sixth studio album Almería.
Thanks to Walmart Soundcheck, Hollywire chatted with the guys on a rooftop in Los Angeles (yes, it's rooftop interview weather in LA) about working with Natasha Bedingfield on “Between the Raindrops” and what piece of advice they have for aspiring musicians.

Working on a song can be a long, time-consuming process, which “Between the Raindrops” was. Talking about the writing and rewriting process, lead singer Jason Wade explained that after three and a half months of creating it they decided a female voice would be a perfect fit for the song. Knowing Natasha for over six years and admiring her work, they reached out to her and she was in the studio the next week.
“I think when anything happens and it’s an artistic connection it happens organically and it’s not put together,” Jason explained. “When she came into the studio she sang the song three or four times and the hair on your arm would stand up. It was beautiful and that’s really when the song came to fruition.”
