Caroline Rose Reveals New Single “Freak Like Me”, Tour Dates

Last month, Caroline Rose announced a new album, Superstar, and shared its first track in “Feel The Way I Want”. Now, the indie artist is back with another single, “Freak Like Me”, along with new US tour dates.

Today’s offering is one that sonically feels like spring unfolding, with bright, lovely percussive elements and a piano line that wafts easily through the mix. In a surprising bit of contrast, though, these breezy arrangements are paired with more “grotesque” and blunt lyrics. Hear it below.

In a press statement, Rose explained the different working parts of the track, saying,

 “‘Freak Like Me’ is a S&M-themed love song about falling in love with your dominatrix. The song’s melody is very floral and beautiful. I imagine it as some sort of delicate dress dancing around 17th century Versailles. I wanted to juxtapose this daintiness with grotesque lyrics. I’ve always wanted to write a pretty song with the word ‘vomit’ in it. Paradoxes are fun. I had been wanting to sample Aaron Embry’s “Raven Song” in a beat for the longest time. Then I had this kind of ‘ah ha!’ moment while working on the song on tour. I chopped up the sample, pitched it and it just fit perfectly. It really took the song to another level and completed the paradox.”

Superstar hits stores March 6th via New West Records. As for Rose’s new concerts, they’re an expansion of her already loaded spring tour schedule. They include a handful of gigs down the West Coast, as well as dates in Denver, Boise, and Salt Lake City. Check out her updated itinerary ahead, and grab tickets here.
