Caroline Polachek has released her second solo album Desire, I Want To Turn Into You, today, Valentine’s Day.

It’s the former Chairlift’s followup album to 2019’s Pang, and first since the standalone hit of ‘Bunny Is A Rider’ (which features on the album), and pre-release singles including the Spanish-guitar-featuring ‘Sunset’, the spacious electronic choral of ‘Billions’ the morphing ‘weird’ 80s pop of ‘Welcome To My Island’, and ‘Blood And Butter’ produced by Danny L.Harle and featuring a bagpipes solo from Scottish folk artist Brìghde Chaimbeul.

The album also features Grimes and Dido on the song ‘Fly To You’.
