Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and Rose Hotel frontwoman Jordan Reynolds recently announced that her debut full-length, I Will Only Come When It’s A Yes, is set to be released May 31.

The new album arrives on the heels of Rose Hotel’s 2017 EP, Always A Good Reason, and 2018’s Conversations (1-4) EP. It's also Jordan's first proper vinyl offering.

For this latest batch of songs, members of fellow Atlanta acts Material Girls, Shepherds, Karaoke, Neighbor Lady, and Palm Sunday appear as Jordan's backing band, bolstering a full-bodied step up from the lo-fi home recordings of Rose Hotel’s early offerings. John Restivo plays drums, Vinny Restivo plays bass, and Tyler Jundt plays synth and trumpet. Tymb Gratz and Jack Blauvelt also play guitar throughout the album.

In anticipation of the new album's arrival, Rose Hotel has released a video for the song “10 K.” It's the opening number from I Will Only Come When It's A Yes. The video is directed by Reynolds and features cinematography and editing by Jayme Powell. With lyrics such as, “Nearly old enough but too young to understand / Time isn’t slowing down and I see wrinkles in my hands,” the song is a love letter to Atlanta and a parting shot of her former hometown, Bowling Green, Kentucky. Every lingering note renders the amber vibe of fall in both of these Southern cities in autumnal hues of nostalgia and melancholy; like an old home movie.

“‘10 K’ is sort of a thesis for the album in that it’s impossible to know what will happen in your life,” Reynolds says. “Moving from Bowling Green to Atlanta was a big adjustment for me, and I wrote most of this record either right before or right after I moved. I was in a specific moment of self-examination that really informed my writing at the time,” she adds. “Here, I especially feel the insecurities of not knowing what the future has in store. I’m reminiscing about the past, but I also know that making choices and taking risks — challenging myself — can be beautiful, and is absolutely necessary for growth.”

Rose Hotel plays the I Will Only Come When It's A Yes LP release show on Friday, May 31, at 529. With Chick Wallace, Palm Sunday, and Sunset Pig. $8-$10. 9 p.m. 529 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-228-6769. www.529atlanta.com.
