Song Premiere: Selena Rosanbalm Explores 'Post-Breakup Purgatory' on 'The Old House'

Daniel Cavazos

Selena Rosanbalm ponders on a past relationship on "The Old House," the latest release from her forthcoming self-titled album (out on Oct. 9).

"The Old House" explores what Rosanbalm calls "post-breakup purgatory," when you can't fully move on -- even when you know it's over.

"The familiar is always more welcoming than the unknown, even when we know that what's familiar is faulty," Rosanbalm tells Wide Open Country. "In 'The Old House,' I wanted to tap into that post-breakup purgatory, that place where you're unsure whether you've made the right decision, and instead of moving forward you stagnate because you can't let go."

Listen to "The Old House" below.

Rosanbalm founded the Austin,Texas-based honky-tonk group Rosie and the Ramblers in 2011. 

"The name change from Rosie and the Ramblers to Selena Rosanbalm was really the impetus for the new record," Rosanbalm says in a press release. "I had a bunch of songs ready to go, but when I needed a few more, I studied the music I wanted my 'new sound' to sound like and worked to write in those styles."
