Read more here: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/hear-raul-malo-and-whitney-roses-seductive-ronettes-cover-20150630#ixzz3efnz8fPX Whitney Rose is in the throes of album-birth with her sophomore effort “Heartbreaker of the Year.” The record was released in Canada on April 21st through Cameron House Records to much acclaim, and Rose has been busy supporting it with constant touring across the country. The album will be released in the United States and rest of world late August 2015 through Redeye Worldwide. Rose describes her music as ‘vintage-pop-infused-neo-traditional-country,’ usually with a chuckle, and admits “The record is a little weird, it’s a little quirky, but so am I.” After supporting genre-defying country legends, The Mavericks, on tour throughout Canada in 2014, Malo was inspired to produce, play, and sing with Rose on the album. “I love this record,” says Malo. “I’m honoured to have played a part in the making of it. The songs are so strong no one could ruin them…not even me.” Recorded in four days at Revolution Studios in Toronto the album also features Jay Weaver (Mavericks, Dolly Parton) on bass, Nichol Robertson (Devin Cuddy Band) on guitars, Jerry Dale McFadden (Mavericks) on keys, Paul Deakin (Mavericks) on drums, Burke Carroll on pedal steel, and Drew Jurecka on strings. Learning the songs on the spot, the band came through with a completely spontaneous recording that brings Rose’s wondrous vocals and discerning lyrical content to the spotlight. Heartbreaker Of The Year was mixed at Capitol Records by Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Keith Richards, Rod Stewart), who supposes he "should take this opportunity to wax poetic about the charm, wit, and sexy cynicism of Whitney Rose, but that’s allot of words." "HEARtbreaker of the year" media attention

"The 1963 Ronettes hit "Be My Baby," ... has previously been covered by John Lennon and the Beach Boys, among others, but this dramatic version from the Canadian songstress and the Miami-born Malo turns the tune into one of the most smoldering duets in recent memory." Rolling Stone "Rose gives the Ronnettes a run for their money with an original song bursting with sugary sweet, pop goodness...And when you hear Rose's crystal clear voice that drips with cooing flirtatiousness, you won't have trouble believing that Heartbreaker of the Year may not just be an album title." Elmore Magazine "Heartbreaker of the Year is as cool as country comes - an intoxicating round of tequila shots served with the salt of despair [and] the refreshing tartness of living life, and delivered by a server who can sass, flirt [and] cuss, and seduce anybody in the room" Calgary Herald “fiery swing ... hazy, honky-tonk swirl" NOW Magazine
