Caroline Polachek Announces New Album
Building off another year of immense critical fanfare and legendary live shows across the world, today Caroline Polachek stakes her claim as a cultural force and pop innovator with the announcement of her new album Desire, I Want To Turn Into You, slated for digital release on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2023, with physical formats to follow on April 14th.
Desire, I Want To Turn Into You is Polachek’s first album release since her 2019 experimental pop masterpiece PANG which cemented her as a generational talent. Her profile has grown exponentially since – landing her everywhere from the direct opening spot on Dua Lipa’s 2022 North American Future Nostalgia Tour, Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Primavera, All Points East, Governors Ball, Pitchfork Music Festival and Outside Lands, and involved with campaigns & shows for Loewe, Dior, Eckhaus Latta and Chloé, to late night performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Night Show with James Corden.
With this news comes Polachek’s statement single, “Welcome To My Island,” from which the album name was born. Produced by Dan Nigro, (“So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings,” Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour), Polachek, Danny L Harle, A. G. Cook and Jim E-Stack, “Welcome To My Island” is Polachek’s voice at both its most wild and most mechanical, grounded by lyrical wit and anthemic hooks. The chorus lyric itself, “Desire, I Want To Turn Into You” rides the obsessive, unhinged edge between maniacal ego and headless euphoria; Valentine’s day will be hitting different in 2023.
