Caroline Rose Launches New Album ‘The Art Of Forgetting’

Beautiful new song 'Miami' is online now...

Caroline Rose will release new album ‘The Art Of Forgetting’ on March 24th.

The songwriter has built a rich catalogue, one that thrives on personal revelation and a lyric twist that builds sumptuous narratives. New album ‘The Art Of Forgetting’ – her first since 2020 – deals with memory and recollection, and the ways in which we build narratives around her lives.

Prompted by a difficult personal period, ‘The Art Of Forgetting’ owes its genesis to calls from Caroline’s grandmother, who was struggling with dementia. “It got me thinking about all the different ways memory shows up throughout our lives,” says the songwriter. “It can feel like a curse or be wielded as a tool.”

Picking apart her methodologies, Caroline Rose returned to the core of her process, before embarking outwards. “From there it was about a year of experimenting with those recordings both at home and in a couple other studios – chopping them up into loops and smears, creating modular percussion, and ultimately building any additional parts around them…”

New song ‘Miami’ is out now, a beguiling introduction to this fresh chapter. She adds: “I’m not one to shy away from drama, and so this was a perfect opportunity to really bring out every ounce of desperation and anger and all those confusing emotions that happen after a big heartbreak.”

Tune in now.
