Rising star Grace Grundy today announces the release of her debut EP, With You In Mind. Co-written by the pop songstress, the EP spans 6 tracks exploring themes including romance, hopefulness and acceptance. With You In Mind will be released on 23rd September. Pre-save here.
Grace explains of the release, “After lots of experimentation and self-examination these songs are exactly what I want to say as an artist right now and it’s a culmination of lots of long nights, train rides, different cities and most importantly the many wonderfully talented people who have helped make it what it is.
I have loved making covers of my favourite songs and putting my own spin on them but I’ve always felt I had more to say as an artist. I grew up obsessed with music and art so to have had to chance to create these songs and the world around them as been a dream. It’s a totally different level of nerves and care when all these songs have come from such a personal place and I can’t wait to get them out there.”
Grace has also released her incredibly relatable and dreamy track, Boys On Posters today. The chorus hears a vulnerable Grace sing, “I only wanna fall for boys on posters, ‘cause they don’t disappoint me like a real boy does”, and showcases her unique and soaring vocals.
Grace has explained of the song, “It’s about when I first saw my boyfriend; I knew he was ‘the one’ but I didn’t feel ready to meet him as all the boys I had met before were pretty rubbish! I panicked and did everything I could to sabotage it and make it not work, but seven years later I’m really glad he didn’t leg it haha.” Listen here.
Last month the Cheltenham-based artist released her debut original single, Wish I Could Stay. The visualiser, which was released alongside the track, has amassed almost 100k views on YouTube, and can be seen here. Wish I Could Stay also recently received its first ever radio spin, over on BBC Music Introducing (The West).
Grace has been cutting her teeth over the last few years releasing her own cover versions of hit songs, which have surpassed millions of streams across platforms and landed her on some of the biggest editorial playlists, on the likes of Spotify and Apple. The pop artist’s beautifully stripped-back version of Martin Garrix and Dua Lina’s single Scared To Be Lonely, has racked up a whopping 40 million streams on Spotify alone! Further to this, Grace’s cover of Cheat Codes and Kiiara’s Put Me Back Together was played on ITV’s hit reality show, Love Island in 2019 which has garnered 64k+ Shazams where it peaked at Number 1, and over 10 million streams on Spotify.
Proving her singing prowess goes further than just one genre, Grace has featured on tracks with electronic/dance duos Gorgon City on track Tears, and Hybrid Minds on song Bad To Me, as well as on British rock five-piece Asking Alexandria’s I Don’t Need You.
