Caroline Rose has shared a new single, "Tell Me What You Want," from their upcoming album The Art Of Forgetting (out on March 24 via New West Records). "Tell Me What You Want" is intensely cathartic with blaring guitars and a high-contrast chorus. Caroline says:

When I listen to this I really feel for myself during that time. My head was like a cesspool of voices trying to tell me what to do. You know, the end of a relationship can be so confusing. There are all these emotions swirling around and really no handbook. You realize when all your attempts to connect with your partner aren't working, you either have to find a way to stick it out or leave… And both options suck. This song is about being in that pickle of desperation, between trying to protect yourself and feeling the immense guilt and regret of walking away from someone you love.

The song comes with a music video directed by Sam Bennett. Check it out below.

Caroline and Bennett also announced a short film of The Art Of Forgetting short film, which incorporates the previously-released music videos as chapters. The short is a "loose recreation of real life events," and Caroline says, “It’s strange to recreate things that happened in the past, in the places where they happened, because they are obviously not the same as they were. I was trying to put my finger on this feeling and someone mentioned the Brazilian Portuguese word ‘saudade,’ a sensation that blends nostalgia, melancholy, desire and longing all in one." The Art Of Forgetting short film premieres on March 23 on YouTube, and access to the watch party is open to those who pre-order the album before March 22.

The new Tower Labs in Williamsburg will host a release party for the film on March 24, with two free screenings and a meet and greet with Caroline. RSVP here. The next day, March 25, Caroline will appear again in NYC for a signing and performance at Rough Trade. Tickets are available now.

Caroline also has a tour coming up supporting the new album. She comes back to NYC on April 12 at Webster Hall with Hammydown. All dates below.
