‘Call Me’ is the new single from acclaimed pop talent ROZES, and takes an honest look at mental health. It is stripped back, with a piano providing the backing for ROZES’ rousing melodies. The track was written at Alicia Keys’ all-female writing camp ‘She Is The Music’, and touches on the importance of recognising the signs of anxiety and depression. It is a deviation from ROZES’ usual energetic electro-pop bops, and marks a significant moment creatively – allowing her ineffable vocal, and emotive songwriting to take center stage.
“I think it’s important that we do not underestimate the power of a phone call. The courage to reach out can change a life, and maybe it’s your own. I would say this is my most ‘ballad’ type song I’ve ever released. It’s honest about mental health and offering hopeful hand to those in thick of it. It’s also important that we remember that our mental health is not a burden. There are so many ways to seek help and it is important that we not only recognize the signs of depression in others, but to also recognize it in ourselves. Like I always say, it’s okay to not be okay, but not okay to stay that way.”
