Rose Cousins shares video for 'The Lullaby (My Oldest Love)'

From 'Bravado' out Feb 21, 2020 on Outside Music (Rose Cousins)

Grammy-nominated and JUNO Award-winning songwriter Rose Cousins' new video "The Lullaby (My Oldest Love)" debuts today. The song is featured on Cousins' new album, Bravado, out now from Outside Music. Watch the video above.

Cousins describes Bravado as a record for those who struggle with loneliness and those wishing they had more time alone - for those who struggle to connect with others, or even to connect with their true selves. "I think about how we're so disconnected," says Cousins. "I get sucked into my phone and forget to go for a walk because of this sense of obligation I have that convinces me to get as much work done as possible. We're missing what's actually happening. I've been thinking about how we must be getting close to a breaking point."

For Cousins, Bravado also marks a chapter of personal and professional growth: she is the producer on the record, applying her years of experience, trusting her own ear and pulling thoughtfully from her network of talented colleagues. "I booked some studio days with the intention of making a single and working with some Toronto based musicians I'd always wanted to including Joshua Van Tassel on drums, Robbie Grunwald on keys, Brian Kobayakawa on bass, Dean Drouillard on electric guitars and with Chris Stringer as engineer. Soon after, I realized I was chasing a theme and a feeling I'd been pondering for months and it turned into a whole record of, perhaps, my best writing."
