Caruso Release New Single – “Freak”

It’s been a long wait for new music from the charismatic Caruso, a band hard to pigeon hole – a phenomenal live band that drift effortlessly between folk and rock, punk and traditional. There’s even a hint of blues and country in there for good measure, and songwriter and driving force Shane Ó Fearghail is fine with that.  

The first new music from Caruso since acclaimed 2008 debut album “The Watcher & the Comet”, “FREAK” is an up tempo affair with a refrain that sticks in your head from the first time you hear it. “FREAK” is what it claims to be – a song about being different.  All clichés firmly in place “FREAK” is definitely where Caruso are and Shane wants the band to be.

Caruso are old school, a gigging travelling band, members and performances change and songwriting is a daily thing – as a live band – acoustic or full on they are fantastic with an ever growing European fan base and a German publishing deal in place, “Freak” will be released in Germany in November. 
With the album almost completed and set for general release in Spring 2012 we can only look forward to the next installment of Caruso!
"Freak" is available in physical and download release at
