With her album ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’ sitting at number 1 in the UK charts Caro Emerald announces the release of ‘Liquid Lunch’, a fun and witty pop tune delivered in Caro’s distinctively sassy retro style.
Radio 2’s “Record Of The Week”, ‘Liquid Lunch’ is the second single to be taken from ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’, Caro’s second album and her first to hit the British top spot - her debut album, 2010’s ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’ peaked at number 4 selling more than 400,000 copies.
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. As Caro explains “I read about a Parisian designer from the early 1900s. Her clothes became so famous that, when she died, nobody noticed for a year because everyone was still talking about her. We looked at the arts scene in Paris at the time, the music, the photography, the fashion. I was so inspired that I co-wrote one of the songs, The Maestro, about Karl Lagerfeld.”
While the essence of ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’ is rooted in the past, the sound - complete with samples, scratching and beats - is thoroughly modern, “I would call it a fun mix of vintage jazz, beats and pop” explains Caro. The Amsterdam Conservatory trained jazz vocalist is an original pop star with the look of a Hollywood icon of yesteryear, a voice that oozes warmth and fun, and a collection of exciting, catchy signature songs that have connected with fans throughout Europe. ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’ also entered the Dutch charts at number 1 this week, following the precedent set by ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’ which subsequently spent a record-breaking 30 weeks at number 1.
Having sold out her March UK tour (including a night at the Royal Albert Hall) Caro recently announced a 14 date September tour which is already sold out. Caro recently appeared on This Morning and BBC Breakfast on May 14th before performing at Hello Magazine’s 25th Anniversary celebrations in London this week.
