Caitlin Rose Releases Video For “Piledriver Waltz (Arctic Monkeys Cover)” || CMT’s Concrete Country Releases Live Performance Video || “Piledriver Waltz” / “Love Is A Laserquest” 7 Inch Out This Record Store Day On Domino‏

In honor of Record Store Day, Domino has commissioned two very special Arctic Monkeys covers from Caitlin Rose, one of Nashville’s brightest young singer/songwriters. When Alex Turner’s “Piledriver Waltz” first appeared in the British film Submarine as a bittersweet acoustic love song, and then later as a fleshed out Arctic Monkeys song from their most recent album Suck It and See, it was evident that the production and arrangement could change, but the soaring timelessness of the song’s lyrics and melody never would.

Caitlin Rose’s cover transforms the song into a country rock ballad complete with slide guitar and powerful vocals remencesnt of the Nashville greats from yesteryear like Loretta Lynn & Emmylou Harris. Her take of Suck It and See’s standout ballad “Love Is A Laserquest” is as heartbreaking a country song as you’ll ever hear. Both songs will be pressed on a super limited edition 7 inch for Record Store Day only.

Rose is currently in the studio recording the followup to her critically acclaimed debut, Own Side Now. More details on that coming shortly.

For now, check out the video for “Piledriver Waltz” below.

Washington Post Interview Feature

American Songwriter’s Feature On Caitlin Rose

“With a voice like a winsome version of Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis, Rose mixes traditional country techniques — a picked guitar here, a lazy Southern drawl there — with alt-country flourishes to craft a sound that rests somewhere between indie folk and that classic 1950s Nashville sound.” TIME Magazine

“The first full-length from Nashville singer-songwriter Caitlin Rose is full of the lovelorn truisms that filled songs by that other Tennessee singer, Patsy Cline. Rose’s songs, however, are firmly products of the 21st century; there’s enough edge to tracks like “Shanghai Cigarettes” to have even the biggest country neophyte fall for her twang.” ELLE

“Own Side Now, the debut recording from Nashville’s Caitlin Rose, is steeped in Country, but isn’t limited by the genre.” KCRW

“A mini masterpiece of torchy ballads and brawny, twangy country pop” Washington Post

“Rose’s confident voice and dexterous delivery have earned her comparisons to great country singers like Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. She’s also a gifted lyricist with a knack for wry observations and artful understatement.” NPR
