Captivating newcomer Lily Rose releases an all-new acoustic video for her conflicted and regretful anthem “Better Than That” available here. The release comes just weeks after the “Villain” singer announced she signed with Big Loud Records, Back Blocks Music and Republic Records for a joint record deal. 

"'Better Than That' is about that one relationship where you just can't seem to let them go," Rose shared with PEOPLE, along with an exclusive premiere of the video yesterday. "You keep telling yourself, 'Man, no more chances!' But you two keep letting that door stay cracked open."

Originally released in 2020, “Better Than That” has become a favorite of new listeners who have fallen in love with Rose’s identifiable vocals through her recent hit “Villain.” The singer, who American Songwriter says “has an identity all her own,” wanted to release this video for fans to experience the song in a live acoustic setting. The video was shot in Franklin, Tenn. and Rose is accompanied on guitar by her co-writer and producer, Matt Morrisey. 

Since announcing her record deal in Jan., Rose has been writing and recording new music while continuing to promote her single, “Villain” which has amassed over 18M streams worldwide since the Dec. 15 release. 

The single has earned her early critical acclaim as a groundbreaker in the format. American Songwriter shares, “there is no doubt that Rose shines different than perhaps any other country artist out there today,” while PEOPLE taps her “quite the singer” and Variety dubs her “as close to an overnight sensation after a good number of years going at it.”  

2021 will bring more music from Rose, as well as her country radio debut. For more information, visit lilyrosemusic.net and keep up with her on InstagramTwitter and YouTube

Touting an identifiable sound described as contemporary, vulnerable and raw, Lily Rose is breaking new ground in the Nashville music scene with her new single, “Villain." On Dec. 1, 2020, Rose posted a clip of “Villain,” a song she wrote with Mackenzie Carpenter and Kyle Clark (produced by Matt Morrissey) about a break-up she believed ended cordially, only to find out she’d been painted as the ‘bad guy’ through social media. The song connected significantly with fans, and two weeks later Rose independently released “Villain” on Dec. 15. The single immediately rocketed to the top of the iTunes all-genre chart, where it held steady at No.1 above Taylor Swift’s latest releases for several days and has remained in the iTunes Top 30 for five consecutive weeks. Rose’s reactive single “Villain” caught the attention of Big Loud Records, Republic Records and Back Blocks Music who signed her to a joint-venture record deal in Jan. 2021. 

Rose grew up in Atlanta as a self-taught drummer and guitarist, but it wasn’t until high school that she discovered her voice. As an athlete and distinguished singer, Rose had to decide which avenue to pursue. Bar sets and cover shows in her college town of Athens, GA led to headlining and sold out shows across Athens, Atlanta, Nashville and NYC, prompting her to make the move to Nashville in 2017.

Her musical influences range from Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Bruce Springsteen to Katy Perry reflecting her innate ability to adopt a “futuristic” 21st century country sound. She currently resides in Nashville where she continues to write and record new music with a focus on melody and hook driven songwriting style, which has proven to resonate among country, pop and rock alike.
