New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Today, singer-songwriter Josh Rouse releases "Salton Sea" along with an exclusive listen at Brooklyn Vegan to one of his earliest demos of the song. The minimalist arrangement of the demo provides a glimpse into the song's evolution from bedroom synth-pop nugget to danceable indie rock single.
"Salton Sea" is the third track off Rouse's new album Love in the Modern Age, out April 13, via Yep Roc Records. "Salton Sea" is the third track off Rouse's new album Love in the Modern Age, out April 13, via Yep Roc Records.
"Love in the Modern Age" (Watch Official Video) and "Businessman" which premiered at Forbes. Calling the album "a sterling collection that is joyous, upbeat and, most importantly, feels completely authentic," Forbes goes on to say "There is no retro gimmick to Love in the Modern Age. This is a masterful storyteller celebrating the nostalgia of his youth with his own feel." (Listen to "Businessman")



Similar to his work on his album 1972 where he captured the aesthetics of a specific moment in time, Josh's new album Love in the Modern Age takes inspiration from the sound and production of early 1980's releases by The Blue Nile, The Style Council and Prefab Sprout. Also serving as inspiration were Roxy Music's Avalon, Leonard Cohen's Various Positions and I'm Your Man. Non-ironic touches like sax, handclaps, reverbed guitar, backing vocals and keyboards give the moody but infectious songs a New Romantic flair.

Josh Rouse has solidified his status as one of his generation's most acclaimed songwriters in both the US and Europe, where he's lived on and off since 2004. Spending the better part of a year touring behind his critically acclaimed eleventh album, The Embers of Time, Rouse was ready for a change. "Coming off such a heavy record, I wanted to try something different," he explains. "I wanted to explore new sounds and write with a fresh backdrop." Trading in his trusty acoustic guitar for a synthesizer, Love in the Modern Age still bears Rouse's distinct fingerprints even as it pushes his limits and forges a bold new chapter more than twenty years into his celebrated career.

Josh Rouse will kick off his tour in the UK in April, followed by North America in May. Click HERE for a full list of UK/North American dates.
