"There's no place like home," the familiar voice of The Wizard of Oz darling Dorothy says at the top of soul singer Lauriana Mae's new Oz-inspired Can't Go Back album, a fairytale-esque project produced by Jack Splash that depicts a small-town girl with big dreams. 

"The "Can't Go Back" project is a portrait of small town life when you got big city dreams," Mae tells Billboard. "How we live, love, lose, and come back stronger. How no matter where we go in life there truly is no place like home. This project and everything I do is for them."

The New Jersey native adds of her producer, "Jack Splash producing the entire thing is just a glimpse into how dedicated and supportive he's been of me. He makes things sound like a hip-hop infused fairytale sometimes and I did all the lyrics and melodies on this. We bet on each other. That's an important part of this story. Sticking it out with the people who stay around, whether you're up or down at the moment." 

Mae laces the set with her sweet and sultry vocals and taps several featured guests for standout cuts including Dreezy ("LOL"), Raekwon ("Protect Ya Neck" remix) and Manolo Rose ("Monopoly"). 

Her Can't Go Back album is also available for free here. Listen to it below.
