Less than a year after her album Through and Through, Baby Rose returns with Slow
Burn, a collection of songs that explode her sonic palette from progressive R&B into a rawer, richer
and more sprawling lens of American music. Here, Rose asserts herself as not only a once-in-tenlifetimes vocalist, but as a formidable songwriter connecting the dots where Muscle Shoals meets
psych, psych meets jazz, jazz meets Americana, and the right players bring it all together. Produced by
BADBADNOTGOOD, Rose and the band found an instant but seemingly endless well of inspiration; what
started as an introduction became a day, became a song, became a night, became Slow Burn.
Baby Rose was already a powerful position player - she can share the stage with
Robert Glasper without breaking a sweat, or close an epic film like Creed III, for which she performed
the closing credit song, with steely confidence. When Rose first met with BADBADNOTGOOD the
idea was to say hello, get acquainted, see what a collaboration could, over time, potentially become.
But the connection was instant, and together they put down lead single "One Last Dance" in just that
first meeting. It was Rose's first freestyle vocal, and it snapped crucial pieces of her vision into focus.
"I've known deep down there were new spaces and sounds that I could rise to," Rose explains. "I've
always been into different sounds that bring in those rawer textures." And so while the speed of their
collaboration thrilled and surprised Rose, the potential and the end results did not. "We moved quickly,"
she says, "and it really was a faucet. Once we got 'One Last Dance', it became clear everything was going
to flow.
