Caitlin Rose Drops First Single from The Stand-In

Videos by American Songwriter

We’ve been waiting with bated breath for Caitlin Rose’s sophomore effort The Stand-In, an album that’s being touted as a more robust record than her somewhat-folky debut, Own Side Now.

“This album could be considered my first attempt at a high kick,” says Rose. “We’re not aiming to make indie-sounding records. How boring would that be?”

Get a preview of Rose’s said high-kick below, with lead single “I Was Cruel,” a song that finds her traversing the same love-is-hell themes we got to know so well on her first album.

Set for release March 5 on ATO Records, The Stand-In features the production talents of Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle), and contains two songs co-written with Gary Louris (The Jayhawks). There’s even a cover of The Felice Brothers’ “Dallas” on the record.

The Stand-In track list:

1. “No One to Call”
2. “I Was Cruel”
3. “Waitin'”
4. “Only a Clown”
5. “Dallas”
6. “Pink Champagne”
7. “Golden Boy”
8. “Silver Sings”
9. “Everywhere I Go”
10. “When I’m Gone”
11. “Menagerie”
12. “Old Numbers”
