Celebrated electronic songstress Låpsley has premiered her latest countdown single and announced details of her upcoming debut studio album.
The swirling beauty of Love Is Blind makes it a more-than-worthy follow up to its predecessor Hurt Me and the swell B-side Burn, and the song arrives with the news that the British talent’s first full lengther Long Way Home will be released on 4 March via XL Recordings.
Produced with Rodaidh McDonald, the collection will also include re-recorded versions of her previous single Station and the track Falling Short from her 2015 EP Understudy, and she refers to the set as “an autobiography of my emotions and events over the past year.”
“Everything that’s happened, I’ve channelled in some way into a song – whether that’s the theme of a long distance relationship, or something that he’s said, or the way that I’ve felt, or an argument. I only revisit the memories of that relationship when I go into the studio.
“I think it’s helped me, to be able to collect everything for those moments when I’m writing. I think that’s what’s driven this album.”
The day after the album’s release, Låpsley will be kicking off a string of five live UK dates at Manchester’s Academy 2. Scroll down for all the venues and the tracklist of the album, which you can preorder here.
