Nashville, TN - January 28, 2020 - Tying into the announce of her much-anticipated sixth studio album, Vanessa Carlton will perform her new single "The Only Way To Lovetomorrow, January 29th, on 3RD Hour TODAY. The song is off her upcoming album Love Is An Art (Dine Alone) out March 27, 2020 and was produced by Dave Fridmann (MGMT, Flaming Lips).

Love Is An Art explores the eternal seesaw that is human connection: the push, the pull, the balance, the bottoming out. It's that constantly evolving nature of love, expectations and compassion that Carlton analyzes from all angles on Love Is An Art, from romantic, to parental, to the friends that hold us up and the leaders that repeatedly let us down.

"Love is the energy you put out into the world," says the Nashville-based Carlton, who was inspired in part by the 1956 book The Art of Loving by philosopher Erich Fromm, and by stories and struggles both in her interior world and the world around her. "And it can be so incredibly messy at times."
