FRANKIE ROSE – ” Love As Projection “

Posted: January 5, 2023 in MUSIC

Night School is so excited to share “Anything“, the first single from “Love As Projection“, the new album by Frankie Rose. Resplendent with a glorious pop chorus, layers of textured harmony and a giddy immediacy, Anything is one of the catchiest and endorphin-generating songs you’ll hear this year.

“Love As Projection” signals Frankie Rose’s emergence into the realm of contemporary electronic pop, a rebirth for one of the most respected songwriters in the underground. Recorded with producer Brandt Gassman and mixed with long-term collaborator Jorge Elbrecht this is the album Frankie Rose has been building up to her entire career. After spending nearly two decades establishing herself across New York and Los Angeles independent music circles, Frankie Rose returns with a fresh form, aesthetic, and purpose embodied in her new album “Love As Projection.” Celebrated by countless critical and cultural outlets over the years for her expansive approach to songwriting, lush atmospherics, and transcendent vocal melodies and harmonies, “Love As Projection” is a reintroduction of her iconic style through the new lens of contemporary electronic pop.

Featuring beautiful, ethereal songs like lead-off single “Anything,” “Sixteen Ways” and “Come Back,” this album is more than a rebirth, a refinement, a resurgence – it’s a culmination of influence and the most personal and accessible collection of art-pop that Frankie has delivered yet.

More than a resurgence, “Love As Projection” boasts a widescreen scope: a long- form project heavily considered for half of a decade, culminating in the most personal and accessible collection of art-pop that Frankie has ever written. When Rose aims for the pop jugular as in first lead track Anything, the result is unstoppable. A majestic pop song built for radio, it erupts into an irresistible chorus that marries classic epic 80s American pop (think peak Belinda Carlisle) with the cult effervescence of Strawberry Switchblade “It’s like a prom scene in a John Hughes movie. It’s a hopeful song about abandoning fear even if the world is quite literally on fire.. In the end, at least we have each other,” says Rose.

“Love As Projection” is released on March 10th
