Lucy Rose has shared “Whatever You Want” as the third single to be lifted from her forthcoming fifth album, This Ain’t The Way You Go Out.

"Whatever You Want" is accompanied by a video directed by US photographer/videographer, Zach Scheiwiller in Brighton, and follows previous singles, "Could You Help Me", and "The Racket".

“I think a lot about my son Otis’s future, and instead of having a grand, extravagant life, I just want him to be happy, it’s very much how I feel about my own life now. The things I really dream of and care about are so different now, so many people I know are struggling in different ways, a lot with their own mental health and I just want them to be happy. I think the pressures of society can be a real contributing factor to their unhappiness," Rose explains.

"I paired this idea with my own personal experience of suddenly feeling so helpless during the time my back was most in disrepair, and then the moments when I was able to walk down the road to my local cafe again and the huge amount of joy that gave me, just being able to do the small and simple things in life again," she continues. "I distinctly remember thinking, if this is all my life is from now on, just being able to get out the house and doing these small things then I’ll be happy.”

Lucy Rose headlines Roundhouse, London on 25 April as part of the venue’s “In The Round” Festival.

This Ain’t The Way You Go Out is released on 19 April through Communion Records, and is available to pre-order now. Remaining tickets for her show at Roundhouse are on sale now.
