Låpsley announces debut album

More on

Much hyped singer-songwriter Låpsley has announced her debut album Long Way home. The record is due for release on 4th March 2016 and includes all her previous singles, as well as a host of new stuff, and you can hear the title track now.



Long Way Home documents a turbulent time in Låpsley’s life — a period in which she revelled in her new-found music career as it took her from Liverpool to London to Los Angeles and back again “It’s an autobiography of my emotions and events over the past year,” she says. “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.”

Låpsley’s determined views on her own production have ensured her involvement in every element of these songs — a fact that in the early days seemed to confuse many of the producers she met. “They didn’t want to listen to me,” she says, “or they think a girl’s just there to add a top line, or they come to the table with ideas already. Straight away if I come in to a studio and someone says ‘I’ve written something for you’, then I’ll just walk out. I don’t care. I’m not there for that.”


She's also announced a set of UK tour dates for March:

5th March Academy 2, Manchester
6th March Trinity, Bristol
9th March Institute 3, Birmingham
10th March The Haunt, Brighton
30th March Heaven, London
