One of the three new tracks from Justin Bieber's Believe Acoustic is "Yellow Raincoat," a moody rumination on staying sane while existing under the harsh spotlight of fame. Speculation that the track was initially written for the Biebs' now-ex Selena Gomez ran rampant when it first leaked last week, but whether it was penned in her honor or not, it's a bit of a lyrical bummer! Over a crisply strummed guitar, Bieber sings of trying to not bend to the winds and whims of fame, whether those gusts come from the gossip press or from so-called friends.
