Anna Rose has a way of digging through the depths of her soul, finding the unvarnished truth, and sharing it beautifully with her audience. She makes no exception on her latest single, ‘Alameda,’ available on all streaming platforms now. This marks the third release from her forthcoming record Last Girl of the Rodeo, due out later this year.
A boldly unfiltered ballad that binds the styles of Fleetwood Mac and Sheryl Crow, ‘Alameda’ finds Rose doing what she does best – seamlessly blending genres while conveying a deeply personal story.
“‘Alameda’ is very much about the breakup of my marriage,” shares Rose. “It’s extremely autobiographical and it was a really hard one to write for that reason. Alameda is this tiny island off of San Francisco—and the way it was described to me was this beautiful place with pretty houses and sweet families. I realized that it was the fantasy of this place that I wanted to run away to, that I had completely fictionalized it in my mind. It’s not really about Alameda, it’s about the tornado that takes you to a fantasy path forward, like the yellow brick road.”
