Part of the magic of Patrick Droney is how he straddles the line between rock and Americana so perfectly, and that's further evidenced in his new single "Caroline."

The stormy, breathtaking new track arrived Friday along with a video and it is undeniable proof of Droney's ability to create music which is simultaneously confessional and stadium-ready. Of course, the riveting new single arrives ahead of his upcoming album Subtitles for Feelings, which is out Aug. 25 on Warner Records. He'll also be hitting the road soon in support of the record.

“I wrote ‘Caroline’ with my dear friend Foy Vance in Nashville last summer," says Droney. "It all started with the bridge, which really resonated with my followers. This track feels more connected to State of the Heart than any others on Subtitles for Feelings, so I thought this would be its perfect moment as a bridge to the new era."

He adds: "‘Caroline’ was also my first production collaboration with the great Butch Walker whose music I discovered on One Tree Hill back in high school. Foy and Butch both have permanent places in my ‘songs that made me’ playlist, so having them on this record is a full-circle feeling.”
