On February 25th Caro Emerald will be releasing 'Tangled Up', the first single from her long awaited second album 'The Shocking Miss Emerald'. 'Tangled Up' will have its world premier play on national radio in Caro's native Holland on February 18th.
A hooky, hip-hop tango, 'Tangled Up' is stylish, classy and sassy pop - Caro's trademark - and is a delicious appetiser for the new album. Where 'Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor' took its inspiration from the Hollywood cinema and the glitz and glamour of the jazz scene, 'The Shocking Miss Emerald' is inspired by the epicentre of style, romance, excitement and dangerous liaisons - Paris.
'Tangled Up' is written by Vince Degiorgio, David Schreurs and Guy Chambers, with production by Caro's steady production team of Schreurs and Jan van Wieringen, and features the renowned bandoneonist Carel Kraayenhof.
Smouldering, charismatic and with an appealingly aesthetic eye for presentation, Caro Emerald is a truly original pop star. 'Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor', so joyful and overflowing with retro-loveliness, sold more than 1.3 million copies across Europe, dominated the charts for 30 weeks in Holland, and in Britain spent nine weeks in the top 10 and was certified platinum. Caro performed on UK TV shows including Jools Holland's Hootenanny, Strictly Come Dancing and BBC's Children In Need and her music became a permanent fixture on the airwaves with Radio 2 adding all five singles to the A List and making the record Album Of The Week. Caro's live performances included an astonishing set in London's Hyde Park and at the Isle of Wight Festival and her sold out headline UK tour garnered rave reviews.
Caro has also dominated the German music scene, and recently picked up the prestigious Golden Camera Award for 'Best International Music Artist', the 'International Newcomer Award' at the Echo Awards and was nominated for the Swiss Music Award 'Best Breaking Act International'. More recently, America has discovered Caro and in January she played sold out shows in Los Angeles and New York to great acclaim. Her live performance is not to be missed - reviewing the show at The Roundhouse, The Times declared the atmosphere to be "part carnival, part high-school prom", praising her "magnificent vocals" and concluding that "When she finally bounced off stage, punching the air, it felt like a whirlwind had hit North London."
In March Caro will be in the UK for three shows. Her shows in Brighton (March 8th) and Bournemouth (March 9th) are completely sold out with just a few tickets left for her Royal Albert Hall debut on March 11th. "Britain has always been so extremely supportive! Coming back again is something I'm so looking forward to. It feels heart-warming and super exciting at the same time to play again for the UK crowd, especially in these legendary venues. The Royal Albert Hall is a dream come true, I still have to pinch myself when I come to think about it."
