Ex-Pipette and indie darling Rose Elinor Dougall is working with Mark Ronson on his next album.

Rose has managed to find the time in between recording her own debut solo album 'Without Why' out in 2010 to work in New York with Mark on his follow up to 'Version'.

Rose said: "Suddenly coming back into it, it was actually really wonderful to be liberated from my own record and work for someone else's project"

"I'm actually very excited about the way the record is going. I can't speak about it because it's not mine but I've sung a couple of songs and written a few things. I may not even appear on the final thing."

Fallen Over

Following the release of two sold out 7" singles (Another Version Of Pop Song & Start/Stop/Synchro), Rose Elinor Dougall has released her third solo single, "Fallen Over", released through Scarlett Music, Out Now.

"Fallen Over" was, once again, recorded and produced by Lee Baker in his Brighton studio and is the first to feature her live band The Distractions. "Fallen Over" is backed with exclusive track, "False Hopes" featuring just Rose and her piano it provides an elegant flipside to the A-side's art-rock attack.

About Rose

Following her departure from The Pipettes in 2008, Rose Elinor Dougall has quietly been recasting herself as a psychedelic-folk chanteuse par excellence.

Two limited singles have demonstrated a breadth of inspiration, from the timeless, melancholy of Sandy Denny, through the leftfield melodicism of Smiths-era Morrissey to the primitive-futurism of Broadcast.

Rose spent most of 2008 isolated in her bedroom with just a casio-tone for company writing a bunch of songs that she hoped "could convey that the music and lyrics were vital but allowed you to engage with the songs on your own terms".

These swirling cascades of dream-pop started appearing on Rose's MySpace for a short while before they were taken down and replaced with some fleshed out versions, courtesy of a collaboration with Brighton producer Lee Baker. On these recordings a melee of instruments including dulcimers, harps, drum machines, strings and horns colluded to create a sonic foundation for Rose's unmistakable alto.

Her debut 7", Another Version Of Pop Song, the title, a reference to her girl-group past and the song itself a declaration of breaking these ties, received praise from many quarters.

Second single, Start/Stop/Synchro raised the ante further with publications such as the NME, Pitchfork, The Guardian, The Sunday Times and Under The Radar bringing the plaudits.

Current single, Fallen Over is receiving attention at radio and press and leads Rose perfectly into the New Year.
