Today marks the return of musician and songwriter on the rise, Blake Rose who arrives with a brand new single, “Casanova,”. With the new track comes news that Blake will release his debut EP, ‘A World Gone By’ on October 8th.
Speaking about the new song, Blake reveals, “Casanova is about constantly falling too hard and too fast for people because you desperately want to be in a relationship, which ultimately ends up pushing them away. It also explores how we all feel when we’re surrounded by everyone in our lives getting into relationships and the pressure that comes with not wanting to be left alone. It’s easy for us to become entranced by the idea of a person just so we’re not lonely and then find out that they’re not who we expected them to be.
”The song comes paired with a fun and innovative official music video, written and directed by Sean Hollihan. Speaking about his new visual, Blake explains,“I really wanted theCasanova video to be fun and energetic, but I also wanted to keep my input minimal so directors could submit treatments without any external influence. Sean came up with the treatment and as soon as I saw it I knew it was the one. It follows the song’s storyline (and my life’s storyline) of constantly falling too hard and too fast for girls which ends up pushing them away. It also explores how we all feel when we’re surrounded by everyone in our lives getting into relationships and the pressure that comes with not wanting to be left alone.”
