LP’s highly anticipated sixth album CHURCHES will be released on December 3rd via SOTA Records. In the past year and a half, the singer-songwriter, who has more than two billion streams to their name, released five singles from the album which now have a combined 80M streams/views. On release date, LP will debut a new song, “Conversation,” and an accompanying new video. Fans can view the new video on LP’s YouTube channel on December 3 (HERE).
“Conversation” was produced by Nate Campany (Tove Lo, K.Flay, Christina Aguilera) and Kyle Shearer (Becky G, Tove Lo, Carly Rae Jepsen) – collectively known as Valley Girl. About the song LP says, “‘Conversation’ is me trying to talk myself into staying in the relationship that I was in. Realizing that we just think differently & just wishing it could come down to a conversation that could fix things and just celebrating and feeling that love for that person and the optimism of feeling that a conversation could fix everything.”
The video was directed by Stephen Schofield. LP describes the video as “This video was much like the ‘Angels’ video where we shot these lyric videos, and I just was playing. I was just fun that the concept of two people having a conversation, are both myself. Me being in two different outfits and one of me was not hearing, or not understanding, and beating their head against the wall, that just kind of happened. It was a super-spontaneous way showing that I’m constantly having these conversations in my own head, with myself. The good and the bad.”
The lush and captivating Churches was executive produced by Mike Del Rio (Kylie Minogue, X Ambassadors, Skylar Grey). In addition to tracks produced by Del Rio and Campany, Churches includes production by Isabella Machine Summers (Florence + The Machine); Lars Stolfer (Health, Local Natives, Cold War Kids); two-time Grammy winner Dan Wilson (Adele, Pink, Leon Bridges, James Bay); and Dan Nigro (Olivia Rodrigo, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sky Ferreira). The album was mastered by multi-Grammy winner Emily Lazar (HAIM, Maggie Rogers, The Killers, Vampire Weekend, Coldplay). Digital, vinyl, CD and special t-shirt bundle album pre-orders are available now at https://lp.lnk.to/Churches.
About the album, Del Rio said, “This album was made in a time where human connection and community was put on hold, so subconsciously, we imagined this music being experienced as some sort of sweet release after a dark time. As LP’s community continues to grow, so does the palette of what works in the LP universe. It was made with a lot of love, sincerity, and friendship with the hope that it translated into a body of work to be enjoyed by all. As fluid and as genre-less as LP is, the music we make is always a pursuit of reflecting their philosophy with a message of love and connection at its centre. “
