Detroit Native Esther Rose announced her plans to release her sophomore album You Made It This Far on August 23, via Father/ Daughter Records. She produced the album while traveling back and forth between New Mexico and New Orleans.
In support of the late August album release, Rose released the single “Only Loving You,” with a video that features a neon-lit Bourbon street, produced by GemsOnVHS and directed by Anthony Simpkins, with graphics by Jessica Yohn. The video features “Hairyoke Night” in St. Roch Tavern, where patrons can both buy a beer while cutting their hair, an idea as strange as the haunting melodies of Rose’s voice, whose timbre is reminiscent of the likes of Joni Mitchell.
You Made it This Far explores the memories of Rose’s childhood and tumultuous years of floating around New Orleans. The video for “Only Loving You” can be streamed below, as well as the track list and Rose’s upcoming tour dates.
