LA indie singer-songwriter Rosie Tucker‘s label debut, Never Not Never Not Never Not, is out via New Professor next Friday, and Tucker has shared another great new track from the record in anticipation of its release. “Lauren” is a tender dedication to a friend on the cusp of being lost. The song is affectionate and a little bit sad, unfolding new readings of the lyrics and melody each time you listen to it.
“‘Lauren’ is a song about having a best friend who you tap goodnight to through the plywood wall of the big ugly pink Victorian house you both live in and what happens when that friend gets sick very suddenly,” Tucker said in a press statement.
Tucker’s brilliantly specific songwriting makes you feel every hurt and every moment of catharsis. “Lauren” is one of the best songs on Never Not Never Not Never Not, but the whole record is something special, so be sure to check back after the release.
Tucker is currently touring the US in support of the record. Check out their dates and listen to “Lauren” below.
