Caroline Polachek announces new album & shares new single “Welcome to My Island”

Caroline Polachek has announced the release of her new album Desire, I Want to Turn Into You and it will be out on February 14th via Perpetual Novice.

She has also shared a new single. “Welcome to My Island” opens the new album, and is where the album title comes from. Caroline co-produced it with Olivia Rodrigo collaborator Dan Nigro (who also worked on Polachek’s “So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings”), PC Music’s Danny L Harle, and Jim E-Stack. “While I was writing this song, I almost saw this from a point of view of egg trapping the sperm,” she told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “It’s maniacal, huge ego…This is the brattiest song I’ve ever made. I needed to go full brat rant mode. I don’t think attitude wise I’ve ever really gotten to tear into this feeling of conflict and frustration. The record is dealing with catharsis and repression a lot. And I think setting up that tension on track 1 was part of the mission statement.
