22 March 2024 – Dublin alt-pop artist Valerie Rose is back with her first single of the year “Wishes”, out now via Diffusion Lab. Listen/stream HERE.

Speaking about “Wishes”, Valerie explains “it’s a song about being repeatedly disappointed after trying to keep hopeful. It’s a fun song to scream when you’re trying to let things go!”

“Wishes” lyrically depicts the feeling of feeling let down by a person that you desperately want to believe in. It’s only after a moment of reflection that you realise that your connection with that person is one sided and they do not care about what’s already theirs. “You’ve got it all / But you don’t see clear.” Prior to writing the song, Valerie’s friend said the words “wasted wishes” after which, she began asking herself hypothetical questions and sculpted the narrative.

Valerie worked on this track with past collaborators songwriter Lauryn Gaffney and producer Chris Bubenzer aka Benza. “Writing the song was such a fun experience”, says Valerie. “When Chris thought of the bassline, Lauryn and I just knew it was going to be a blast writing this song. Everything just flowed out of us all.”
