British born, LA-based singer songwriter LAUREL today shares the fifth single, ‘Only One’, from her upcoming studio album PALPITATIONS, due for release on 14th June via Communion Records – pre-order the album here.

Listen to ‘Only One’ here.

‘Only One’ explores the intoxicating euphoria of infatuation. With soaring vocals and soul-stirring instrumentation, the track weaves together themes of longing and desire with emotive lyricism: ‘You’re the only one that sets fire to my sun, burning with a fire when you look at me’. Inspired by the complexities of falling in love, ‘Only One’ perfectly encapsulates the bittersweet in a polished, synth-infused piano ballad.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Only One’, LAUREL says the track is about “Falling so deeply in love. It’s a new love but a sure love, surer than anything you’ve ever felt. It’s intimidating – you aren’t sure whether you can trust them yet, and they feel the same. A part of you wants to run away, but really you can’t. You don’t have a choice but to see it through because they’re the ‘only one’.”

The new track arrives just weeks after LAUREL’s UK and EU headline tour announcement, marking her highly anticipated return to the stage, following her triumphant sold out intimate showcase at Hackney’s Oslo earlier this year. The tour will kick off on October 20th at G2 in Glasgow, followed by performances at Academy 3 in Manchester on October 21st, before arriving at the iconic KOKO, London on October 22nd. The UK dates are followed by a run of EU shows across Amsterdam, Paris, Antwerp, Cologne and Berlin. Remaining tickets are available here.
