Caitlin Rose has today released a new single called ‘Getting It Right’ off her forthcoming album CAZIMI (out November 18th). ‘Getting It Right’ was co-written with Courtney Marie Andrews, who also sings harmonies on the track. Along with the track Caitlin and Courtney have also shared a live video.
Speaking of the track Caitlin says: “Several years ago, I fell in love with Courtney’s first album. I had been doing co-writes for a while, but realized I needed to start focusing in on the writers and artists I really wanted to collaborate with. I wasn’t really being set up on things that were fulfilling that desire so I snuck into her DM’s and proposed a write whenever she was in town. Luckily she was already in town and we spent an extremely hot afternoon on the patio talking astrology and music and walking away with what I always thought of as a bit of a banger.”
“It feels like an obvious anthem for the album with all the time that’s gone by and the hole I was in for a few years. All the disappointment of feeling like I couldn’t do a damn thing right. I’m not even sure how much of that discussion was had, but it was really refreshing to talk and create something with someone on the brink of their own amazing journey. A little of my own cynicism dissolved that day, and even though it would take a few more years before I could actually embark on my own re-entry into the field, it’s definitely a song that helped push me in the right direction.”
When Caitlin Rose settled in at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios for a week of tracking in February 2020 with co-producer Jordan Lehning, she never expected the world to turn on its head just a month later. It turns out, sitting with these songs a little longer is exactly what she needed. After a seven year absence following the release of her sophomore LP, The Stand-In she was finally ready to dismiss any preconceived idea of what a “Caitlin Rose Album” should be. The resulting 12-song collection reflects the multifaceted complexity of a fully-realised person, even if things had to be pulled apart and put back together a few times to get there.
Taking its title from the astrological term for when a planet is in such close proximity to the sun that it’s considered to be in the heart of it, CAZIMI chronicles “the slow motion unraveling of somebody’s life” in the aftermath. With a voice equal parts honeyed and world-weary, and featuring backup vocals from Courtney Marie Andrews, Rose sings self-aware songs of self-destruction, documenting proclivity and impulse control, bad habits in life and in romantic pursuits. She skips across genres, combining new wave influences with pop stylings and the melancholy songwriting that made her such a staple of the Nashville scene.
