Rising Australian artist, Blake Rose has returned with his first new single of 2023, “Use Me” today. The track is the latest to be taken from his forthcoming EP, You’ll Get It When You’re Older set for release via AWAL Recordings on February 24th. Pre-save the EP now HERE.
“On the surface level, ‘Use Me’ is about being attracted to somebody and lust creeping into the point where you would let this person do anything to you,” Blake reveals. “You’re so obsessed you don’t care. However, upon a closer look, one might realize the song is actually about addiction, resembling the relationship between a drug and its abuser. The substance is personified.”
Following multiple high-profile tours supporting the likes of Dean Lewis, girl in red, Noah Kahan, Ashe, as well as a one-off LA show with American rock band Boys Like Girls, Blake played two SOLD OUT headline shows in Los Angeles and New York last Fall. He is next scheduled to hit the stage this Spring, joining UK artist Mimi Webb on the SOLD-OUT UK leg of her EU/UK tour. For a list of tour dates and to purchase tickets, click HERE.
‘You’ll Get It When You’re Older,’ will serve as the follow up to Blake’s debut EP, ‘A World Gone By’ (LISTEN) released in 2021. Blake’s catalog continues to grow with each subsequent release, showcasing his adept lyricism and keen ear for a catchy hook and earworm melodies, evidenced by his impressive listener base, amassing more than 300 million streams across all releases.
Hailed by V Man as “an artist to watch,” Blake Rose’s sound is anchored in luminous and lush conjurations, offset by sparse beat-craft, off-kilter plugins, in-the-box wizardry, and soulful intonation. In just over a year, Blake Rose went from busking in the streets of Perth to becoming one of the most exciting new artists to emerge in recent years. He first catapulted into the spotlight with self-penned, self-produced gems such as his debut ‘Hotel Room,’ and follow-up track, ‘Lost,’ further igniting a buzz.
Hard at work in the studio on new songs, Blake continues to add to his arsenal, further solidifying his potential as a global force in music.
