Rocket is an album by Edie Brickell & New Bohemians. The album was released on October 11, 2018, and is their first album since 2006's Stranger Things.[1][2] The band wrote the songs on the album during the rehearsals of their 2017 La Rondalla Benefit Concert. After that they decided to record them, and the band recorded seven songs in eight days.[3] The lead singer of the band, Edie Brickell, says that the album doesn't have too much structure, and often bounces between genres.[3] Brickell also hopes that this album is a new beginning for the band and will bring them back on the radar.[3]


"What Makes You Happy" was released as the first single on September 13, 2018 along with a music video to accompany it.[4] The second single, "Tell Me" was released on September 27, 2018.[5]
