LUCY ROSE’S STRANGEST OF WAYS PREMIERES ON REFINERY 29

U.S. TOUR KICKS OFF IN SUPPORT OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED 2017 LP SOMETHING’S CHANGING

“…she is at her best at her most intimate, albeit with a new gust of openness from her far-flung adventures.” ★★★★ —Q Magazine

Something’s Changing is a culmination of much-welcomed growth for Rose. She has the ability to make listeners feel: when she’s struggling to find comfort in her own skin, finding joy in life and questioning her path. Her most recent body of work shows Rose finding her sense of self, but makes it relatable to listeners. It’s that connection that solidifies Rose’s career on the folk world.” —Paste Magazine

“With songcraft and performances on point here, Something's Changing is Rose’s most exquisite album to date and her most moving.” —All Music Guide

UK artist Lucy Rose premieres the video for her new single “Strangest of Ways” with Refinery 29. Read HERE and watch HERE. Refinery 29 says of the video, “Heartwarming... no one can ever say Lucy Rose doesn't care about her fans. The U.K. based singer and songwriter doesn't just respond to their emails and chat after shows––she stays at their houses.” The track comes from her third studio album, Something’s Changing out now on Arts & Crafts. Lucy continues her U.S. tour beginning March 2. Additionally, the B-side of “All That Fear” is now available online. Listen here on VEVO and Spotify.

The inspiration for the “Strangest of Ways” came by way of long time fan, Zoe Schofield. Zoe lives with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which means she doesn’t have the ability to travel and explore. Talking through ideas for the shoot, Lucy asked Zoe if there was anything she’d always dreamed of doing but hadn’t been able to do.

Zoe responded with the idea of visiting the Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland and so earlier this month, after a lot of planning and preparation, the pair spent the day together exploring this natural phenomenon with a camera to capture everything.

Following the tour for her second album Work It Out, Lucy noticed a steady stream of tweets from Latin America, and the unlikely statistic that geographically her music was most popular on Spotify in Mexico City. Inspired by this news, Lucy offered her fans in Latin America a deal: “If you book me a gig, I’ll come and stay.”

For two months Lucy toured Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Mexico, playing free shows, staying with fans and “falling back in love with making music.”

Rose’s husband Will Morris filmed the experience along the way and produced a documentary of the trip. The documentary was inspired by “the kindness and faith in music of those she met including fans blocking the street outside a gig above a launderette, trying to sleep on endless inter-city bus rides and living with families in out-of-the-way towns.”

With the insight gained during her travels, Lucy set out to make the third album on her own. She began to collaborate with Brighton producer Tim Bidwell, and in the comfort of his home studio, created the new album in a mere 17 days.

The record also contains contributions from Bidwell, in-house bassist Ben Daniels and drummer Chris Boot as well as guest appearances by Daughters’ Elena Tonra, Marcus Hamblett and Matthew and The Atlas’ Emma Gatrill. On two tracks vocal harmonies are provided by The Staves (“Floral Dresses” and “Is This Called Home”).

“The songs just came more naturally after that trip, from feeling good and from learning so much about myself,” adds Rose. “I feel more comfortable in my own skin than I’ve ever felt in my life. So there is a lot of searching as well as a lot of discovery on this record.”
