“haunting and beautiful” – WXPN Philadelphia
At the end 2013 Rose Cousins reached a limit she didn’t know existed. Fearing burnout after years of constant touring she made a deliberate decision, barring a select few shows, to stop touring and focus on other creative avenues.
Her goal was to connect with artists, writers, and producers to make songs in new ways, new sounds with new people, not knowing where they would go and not needing to. Her catalogue and perspective expanded, and in that time her new album, Natural Conclusion, was conceived.
Natural Conclusion is an album Cousins calls “the most honest and vulnerable thing” she has made to date.
“Ultimately, a life consists of many relationships, some chosen and some assigned, each playing different roles on a subjective, expansive spectrum of success and failure. We choose, we are chosen, we are left, we leave, we stay anyway, we grieve, judge and empathize, relinquish, atone alone, keep and let go. Each relationship will come to its Natural Conclusion.”
