Rose Elinor Dougall has announced her new album, 'A New Illusion'

Rose Elinor Dougall is back with a new record. She’ll release her third full-length ‘A New Illusion’ - the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Stellular’ - on 5th April via Vermillion Records.

“I just wanted to sit at the piano and play, I wanted to return to something essential,” Rose says of her new material, which sees her reflecting on the tricky nuances of getting through your twenties. “There’s something comforting and solid about that instinctive relationship with music, with playing and singing.”

The record’s preceded by seductive lead single ‘First Sign’, which was sparked during a trip to a remote part of Andalusia. “I was trying to cut loose from a situation, and this song is about vainly attempting to shake oneself free,” she explains. “I was looking for a loose, hazy feeling to the music to sit with the imagery of the song. I wanted it to sound like the end of summer.”

‘A New Illusion’ sees her team up with her brother Tom (lead singer in Toy, ‘FYI’), his bandmates Maxim Barron and Max Claps, Euan Hinshelwood and Joe Chilton of Younghusband, and other pals. “It does feel like a really nice group effort – I didn’t want to be over-prescriptive, so some of it is quite loose. I wanted to make it about musicianship.”

Check out ‘First Sign’ below, and find the album’s track listing and artwork after the jump.
