Singer-songwriter Caroline Rose has announced a new record, Superstar, which is out on March 6 via New West. The lead single, “Feel the Way I Want,” is out now, too, with a music video that Rose filmed on her iPhone on a trip from Hollywood, Florida to Hollywood, California. Check it out below. Plus, find Caroline Roses’s tour dates, which begin in March.
Superstar follows Caroline Rose’s 2018 album LONER. According to a press release, Rose began working on Superstar with the challenge to “make something from nothing.” The album was also inspired by the movies The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant, Mulholland Drive, and Drop Dead Gorgeous. The record follows a protagonist who leaves their life behind to pursue fame. Rose explains:
To me, there’s both humor and horror in hubris and what it takes in
order to be successful. I wanted to make a story out of those parts of
myself that I find largely undesirable and embarrassing, then inject
them with steroids.
In addition, Rose said of “Feel the Way I Want,” in particular, “My goal is to have people, including myself, not know whether to love or hate this person. They’re kind of like a walking eye roll who’s easy to dismiss, but at the same time you admire their determination. It’s the Kanye effect.”
