Listen to Arlo Parks’ intimate new song ‘Caroline’

"It’s an exploration of how something once full of healthy passion can dissolve in an instant"

Arlo Parks has shared a new single – watch the lyric video for the intimate ‘Caroline’ below.

It’s the latest preview of the singer’s debut album ‘Collapsed In Sunbeams’, which is set to land on January 29, 2021 via Transgressive.

“’Caroline’ is an exercise in people watching and seeing situations unfold without context,” Parks said of the new song.


“It’s an exploration of how something once full of healthy passion can dissolve in an instant.”

Watch the new ‘Caroline’ lyric video below.

The new song follows the likes of ‘Green Eyes’, ‘Hurt’ and ‘Black Dog’ in previewing the album.

Speaking about her debut LP, Parks said: “My album is a series of vignettes and intimate portraits surrounding my adolescence and the people that shaped it. It is rooted in storytelling and nostalgia – I want it to feel both universal and hyper specific.”

The singer is set to take ‘Collapsed In Sunbeams’ on a 2021 UK and European headline tour, beginning in Brussels next April. She also leads the first announcement for next year’s Great Escape festival in Brighton.
