We haven’t heard any new music from Caroline Smith since her tap-dancing 2016 release “Trying Not To Love You,” but yesterday, not only did she announce that she’ll soon release new music, she also officially rolled out her new name: Your Smith. She posted a message on Twitter and Instagram explaining the fresh start.
All of Smith’s social media handles have been changed to @yoursmithforever, as well as her website, though she’s still searchable as “Caroline Smith” on Facebook and Spotify. Photos by Quinn Wilson — Lizzo’s creative director — accompanied the announcement.
Though she’s currently based in L.A., Your Smith is something the Minnesota native has been testing out for a little while now having been billed as “Caroline Smith (Your Smith)” on a series of solo shows she did in the spring, and signing off a Facebook post from May with the same closing that showed up in her announcement yesterday, “you will always have Your Smith.”
Her first new music as “Your Smith” will be released next Friday, June 29.
In the spirit of new beginnings and the celebration of refinement through perseverance, I present to you Your Smith; a name that defines the soul of the next chapter. Forever reinventing myself, forever pushing the boundaries of what I can’t do into what I can, I may change, I may explore. But I promise through it all, I will always stay myself, I will always be writing these songs for you, and you will always have Your Smith.
