Some fans may know Frampton as the titular second half of pop-punk outfit Meg & Dia, but to most, she’s the throaty pixie who finished second on The Voice. With Red, she pledges allegiance to no single genre, flitting confidently from Blondie-style disco-pop (”Billy the Kid”) and floaty acoustic folk (”The Broken Ones”) to the kind of big-chorus country proffered by her Voice coach Blake Shelton, who turns up for a duet on ”I Will.” The result feels like a farewell to life on the Warped Tour.
