Caitlin Rose released her debut record at the end of last month, entitled Own Side Now. It's very good, as we wrote in our review. Well done to her. We also ran a track-by-track run-down, written by the woman herself. Now we've got the first look at the video for 'Shanghai Cigarettes', which is the next single to be released from the album and is available from September 27.
Here's what she said about this particular track:
I had writer's block for a year, coincidentally, I was seeing someone at the time. When he stopped seeing me I wrote 'Shanghai Cigarettes'. God bless him. The asshole that he is. For the record, I decided to amp it up. It's easy to get tired of playing a song all sappy all the time when you know there's more to it than that. The full band recording has that Tom Petty feel that I always intended for it, but was too much of a sadsack to attempt before. Rayland's vocal adds something really special. I'm a big fan of duets so it just made sense to bring him in on it.
