Carousel is a song by American singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton, taken from her fourth studio album Rabbits on the Run. The song served as the album's lead single when it was released via digital download on May 3, 2011.
After confirmation of her new signing with Razor & Tie over a month ago, Carlton confirmed via Twitter that Carousel had been selected as the lead single for Rabbits on the Run, describing it as "a hopeful song that came out of a very dark place. A tune I woke up singing." Her new label also confirmed the news shortly after.
Carlton premiered an acoustic rendition of the song at a concert played at Kean University on October 9, 2010. The song has since become a regular addition to her set list during live performances.
