Caroline Rose Announces New LP ‘The Art of Forgetting,’ Shares “Miami”

[Brooklyn Vegan]

Caroline Rose returned in October with “Love / Lover / Friend,” their first single since their 2020 album Superstar, and now they’ve announced a new album, The Art of Forgetting, due out March 24 via New West Records. They began work on it making recordings in their home studio, and “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,” they say. See the cover art and tracklist below.

The second single from The Art of Forgetting is “Miami,” about which Rose says, “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.” The accompanying video was directed by Sam Bennett, and you can watch it below. “For the ‘Miami’ video, I was mainly focused on what would be the most effective way to move people in regards to the two characters and how they interact,” Rose says. “Because this is a sort of loose recreation of some things in my life it was important to me to interpret the feeling of that time as accurately as we could within four minutes’ time. Sam, who is a dear friend of mine and brilliant director, thought a great way to capture that fever-dream-like quality was to create a lot of movement with a continuous shot. He showed me different lenses and cameras to use and we ultimately went with an anamorphic, Old Hollywood-esque feel, which gives it that nostalgia thinking back on a time past.”

Caroline is headed on tour starting in late March, including an NYC show at Webster Hall on April 12 with Hammydown. They’ve added new UK dates in May and June at the end of their North American run; see all dates below.
