Caroline Polachek announces new album, shares “Welcome to My Island”
Caroline Polachek has announced a new album, Desire, I Want To Turn Into You, that will be out on Valentine's Day 2023. While full details on the album have yet to be shared, you can check out the cover art and new single "Welcome to My Island" below.
"Welcome to My Island" opens the new album, and is where the album title comes from. Caroline co-produced it with Olivia Rodrigo collaborator Dan Nigro,(who also worked on Polachek's "So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings"), PC Music's Danny L Harle, and Jim E-Stack. "While I was writing this song, I almost saw this from a point of view of egg trapping the sperm," she told Apple Music's Zane Lowe. "It's maniacal, huge ego...This is the brattiest song I’ve ever made. I needed to go full brat rant mode. I don’t think attitude wise I’ve ever really gotten to tear into this feeling of conflict and frustration. The record is dealing with catharsis and repression a lot. And I think setting up that tension on track 1 was part of the mission statement."
