LP ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM HEART TO MOUTH AVAILABLE DECEMBER 7
DEBUTS CINEMATIC & EMOTIONALLY CHARGED MUSIC VIDEO FOR “RECOVERY”
“Physically a cross between John Cooper Clarke and Patti Smith, vocally a blend of Gwen Stefani and Cyndi Lauper, LP alchemises that patchwork into something not currently available elsewhere” – Guardian
“Her music has a depth of feeling that is rare.” – MTV
“The singer/songwriter with mega pipes you need to know” – InStyle
“The great thing about discovering a new singer like LP, is that there’s already a back catalogue to delve into.” – British Vogue
LP announces the release of her anxiously awaited fifth full-length, Heart To Mouth [BMG], arriving in stores and at all digital retailers on December 7, 2018. In tandem with the big news, she shared the next single and music video “Recovery.”
Her most personal offering to date, Heart To Mouth lives up to its name with the kind of unbridled, unfiltered, and undeniable songcraft that cemented her as a fan favourite.
Of the record, she said, “When I get on the mic and start doing melodies, I can feel that direct line from my heart to my mouth. In the past, there was a city full of streets that needed my attention. Now, I feel like I have a major highway to communicate emotion from. Whether they’re sadder songs or big anthems, they all come from the same place.”
Latest single “Recovery” illuminates the honesty at the record’s core. Upheld by stark and stripped piano, slow burning and bold verses catch fire on the confessional, yet catchy refrain, “Can’t you see? I’m in recovery.” The music video brings her words to life as it depicts the dissolution of a relationship whose embers won’t be extinguished so easily. The clip’s atmosphere complements the sparse production by Mike Del Rio (X Ambassadors, Kylie Minogue, POWERS).
The new single arrives hot on the heels of “Girls Go Wild.” Within a month, the tune impressively generated nearly 3 million YouTube views and 1.2 million Spotify streams and counting.
The singles only represent two shades of Heart To Mouth’s kaleidoscopic wonder. “House on Fire” hinges on show-stopping theatrical-style delivery rife with raw power, while “Die For Your Love” borders on blues and dance all at once with its tribal percussion and sweeping refrain. Meanwhile, the stirring “Special” leaves a breathless final word. Check out the full tracklisting below!
