LA alt-rocker Caroline Kingsbury has announced her brand new EP, titled 'Remixes From Heaven'. The EP is composes of newly remixed versions of hit tracks from her debut album, 'Heaven's Just A Flight', released last year via Fortune Tellers Records.
To kick everything off, she has just shared the first release, a jangly synth-pop rendition of her track 'Massive Escape', helmed by Nashville indie-rockers Arlie.
Speaking on the track, Caroline wrote:
"Every single word I sing in this song happened the night I saw a plane crash into someone's house on the television screen behind a shitty bar. I threw back a shot and a beer and wrote the lyrics out in a note on my phone as I watched the wreckage settle. I had just ended a long term relationship and felt the weight of that decision that night. The original version of 'Massive Escape' came out a full year ago on my debut album....and my original intention with production was to set the scene of the drama I was experiencing the night I wrote it...I chose a driving, syncopated beat to represent the emotional highs and lows and the heights those feelings took me that drunken night. The instrumentals of this version of 'Massive Escape' is a breath of fresh air after the wreckage of that heartbreak. I feel it represents the healing after tragedy...That's exactly where I am in life, healing after losing my brother to cancer and having a strained relationship with family members after I began dating my girlfriend."
'Remixes from Heaven' will also include a dance remix from DJ Josh Lumsden and a remix by Fortune Tellers' Peter Matthew Bauer, as well as two new alternate versions by Caroline herself. Currently on tour with Post Animal down the west coast, Caroline will be throwing a residency at Berlin in NYC all of June.
