Caitlin Rose has released ‘Nobody’s Sweetheart’, the second single from her forthcoming album CAZIMI. The LP, the Nashville singer-songwriter’s first in nine years, was announced last month with the track ‘Black Obsidian’. Check out the Austin Leih-directed video for ‘Nobody’s Sweetheart’ below.
“For a long time I was doing a little series on Instagram where I would punchline all of the old sheet music I was collecting,” Rose said in a statement about the new song, which was co-written with Daniel Tashian. “There’s a 1924 tune called ‘Nobody’s Sweetheart’ and I added ‘and nobody’s fool’ as a crack. I ended up taking it down because I knew it would be a really fun one to write. Daniel Tashian just happened to be on my schedule that week and was the perfect musical cohort to explore this. I wanted something anthemic and fun to play in sets and that definitely scratched the itch.”
“The video just came out of wanting to ride horses and, more specifically, that I always thought ‘Nobody’s Sweetheart’ was a perfect racing name,” Rose added. “We were able to film at the Loretta Lynn ranch thanks to some amazing friends. Crystal Lynn patiently guided me through an entire week’s worth of riding lessons in one day. I’m so thankful to the Lynn family for one of the best days I’ve had in a long time and for this perfect opportunity to become a born again horse girl.”
CAZIMI comes out November 18 on Missing Piece/Names.
