News Role Model announces debut album ‘Rx’

Check out new single ‘if jesus saves, she’s my type’ now.

Set for release on 8th April, Role Model has announced his eagerly-awaited debut album ‘Rx’.

Speaking to us for our Class of 2022 issue, he said, “I want to make pop music with substance. I think it’s so easy to make these catchy fucking ‘I love you baby, drive me crazy’ type of songs, but I just can’t do that. And so I think the challenge for me is fitting a really visual story into these pop structures.”

“I’m not one for trophies or anything, I’ve got no history in sports or anything, but a trophy would be fucking nice,” he continued. “About a year and a half ago I tweeted ‘I’m not kidding, I want a GRAMMY for this’, and that’s the mindset I’ve had for the past two years working on it!”

Sharing new track ‘if jesus saves, she’s my type’ alongside the news, Role Model adds, “As much as I love being alone, I think even the strongest people have a breaking point. I spent years completely alone and got to a point where I needed help, which later came in the form of a girl, who I fell in love with. This song is that stage of desperation that I felt could be compared to the way some people find God. When you’re on your knees just begging for something or someONE. It sets up the album perfectly.”
