After racking up millions of streams thanks to her collaboration with R3HAB on global hit ‘I Still Remember’, Mississippi singer-songwriter Caroline Romano returns today with some stellar music.
Taken from her debut album ‘Oddities & Prodigies’, new single ‘Grocery Store’ is an achingly gorgeous track that grapples with loneliness and the longing for connection.
“I spend a lot of time in grocery stores. It’s where I kill my time and where I look for more of it. I like to walk around the produce section and people watch. It makes me feel less lonely. I fell in love for the first time at a Kroger in Nashville, and I found myself still going back there in hopes that I might run into him between the aisles. It was “our place” in some weird sort of way. ‘Grocery Store’ is the kind of love song I can relate to because it’s real. We all spend so much of our lives walking up and down freezer aisles, and I don’t want to discount that as a place where beautiful things can still occur. I write what I know, and I know grocery stores, heartbreak, and looking for familiar faces in the checkout line.”
‘Oddities & Prodigies’ is out now.
