If you party as hard as American Idol star Fritz Hager, there is a sweet chance you won’t know where you are when you wake up. The ceiling over your head won’t be recognisable because it isn’t your home, and it would take time to remember the name of the person you woke up with because you’re like that.

As the singer-songwriter puts it perfectly, “With my first single after Idol, I felt like I had an opportunity to experiment and fine-tune my sound,” Hager recalls. “I think that ‘Caroline’ is a culmination of that. Whenever I write I try to play with the relationship between comedy and tragedy and figure out the best balance for each song. I like to describe ‘Caroline’ as a sitcom cold open put to music. It’s a story about the morning after a one-night stand and the narrator trying to find a clever way to remember her name. In real life, this guy is an asshole for sure, but in a sitcom, the audience is rooting for him. I think that this song achieves the same thing.”
