Vanessa Carlton is out with the music video to her new single ‘Carousel’, the first release from the American singer songwriter’s fourth studio album ‘Rabbits on the Run’, out June 21st on Razor & Tie.
“‘Carousel’ is the only song I’ve ever written in a dream that sounded lovely the next morning,” Carlton explained. “The origin of ‘Carousel’ is a dream, hence the dreamscape of the visual. I worked with an inspiring group of artists with impeccable taste. We were careful with its visual symbolism. There is nothing meaningless about it and I hope that comes across. The song is hopeful and it grew out of a very dark place. I think this little film of ‘Carousel’ represents the spectrum of the music and I hope it adds a little spark of something pure and inspiring to the mix out there.”
