Rose Cousins returns to the UK Oct 2019 on the tail of a new single, a cover of Prince's I would die 4 U, featuring England's own Bear’s Den and Dutch artist Christof van der Ven, who were serendipitously in Toronto on a day off from tour while Rose was in studio making her upcoming record.

“Prince died on my birthday. He was bigger than life and yet so utterly, humanly vulnerable. Everyone has their own relationship with his music; I find his story and talent fascinating and his death tragic. This particular song fits the theme of the record so well and when I knew the boys were in town I could hear us all singing it. We had no idea we'd all be in town at the same time until two nights before when I was at their show in Boston. I'm such a fan of these guys and I'm so pleased we got to collaborate again.”

Originally from Prince Edward Island, Rose Cousins lives in Halifax, NS, Canada when she’s not touring internationally. Fueled by collaboration she deeply values being part of multiple music communities.

In addition to touring, Cousins regularly travels to Nashville, Los Angeles, Toronto to write with other artists and for film and television. An avid photographer herself, Rose has become known for artistic collaborations with filmmakers, photographers, painters, and other diverse artists. Her album artwork features her own photography, all videos associated with Natural Conclusion were created by East Coast filmmakers, including one she made herself and her merchandise includes original paintings by friend and Toronto artist, Jamie Ashforth.

Prince died on my birthday. Everyone has their own relationship with his music. He was bigger than life and yet so utterly, humanly vulnerable. I find his story and talent fascinating and his death, tragic. I was reminded of this song when it came on at the end of a movie I watched within days of recording it. I could hear us all singing it.

The simplicity of these songs is deceiving; as sparse as they feel, her voice draws you in until you realize you are at the heart of the storm.” – The Guardian

“Cousins has a disarmingly fluid vocal tone and an ability to convey the most internalized emotions — disappointment, grief, resolve, forbearance — without an ounce of fuss.” – NPR Music

“deeply caresses her exquisite vocals through a dozen songs that form an exploratory, intimate meditation on the mysteries of being human: identity, fraility, relationships, the nature of love and spiritual connection” – LA Times
