British born, LA-based singer songwriter LAUREL today shares her second studio album PALPITATIONS, alongside single ‘Coming Back For More’ – listen to the album here.

‘Coming Back For More’ embellishes groovy percussion with breezy, lightweight lyricism in an airy pop fantasy. Speaking on the inspiration behind the track, LAUREL says: “‘Coming Back For More’ is about when you’ve only just met someone, and you’re obsessed with and addicted to them already.” Listen here.

With themes of love, freedom, vulnerability, and embracing your authentic self while keeping it light with catchy sonics throughout, LAUREL delivers 11 tracks of pop brilliance on PALPITATIONS, all filtered through a haze of complex-yet-relatable emotions. The album opens with ‘45 Degrees’, LAUREL’s airy vocals and carefree lyricism perfectly embodying the warmth of sun-drenched days, followed by the euphoric ‘Wild Things’ – a summer-ready cut of polished pop glory. ‘Burning Up’ grapples with the relentless pursuit of change in a dazzling 80s dance anthem, while ‘Only One’ weaves together themes of longing and desire with emotive lyricism and soul-stirring instrumentation in a synth-infused piano ballad.

Speaking about PALPITATIONS, the singer-songwriter comments: “Each song on my record can be felt as a palpitation. A moment of angst/adrenaline/love/sorrow/heartache/euphoria. Emotions that are so strong that they make your heart skip a beat.”

LAUREL has also recently announced a UK and EU headline tour, marking her highly anticipated return to the stage. 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.

Coming in hot on the heels of a sold out show celebrating her new creative era at London’s Oslo and the release of ‘Wild Things’ in February, LAUREL has already seen immense support from BBC Radio 1 Future Pop and Future Artists, and Australia’s Triple J. 2024 is gearing up for what promises to be an unforgettable year for LAUREL – a moment where she’ll finally step up to the pop throne.
