Today we have for you a great interview, which LP gave in February, 2017, to The Independent, an important British online newspaper (it used to be in print, at least until March of 2016, since then it’s only available online).

The interview grants us some insight on the story behind her latest songs and on her musical and political views. She opened up about all of the above a bit more than she usually does. The interview has been put into the written form in a very skillful and precise way, because, reading it, you can almost hear LP speaking the words. And that’s a unique competence for interviewers – thank you, Roisin O’Connor!
✶ Interview with LP for The Independent – LP interview: On Beyonce, ex-girlfriends, and her surprise hit song “Lost on You”
Some comments from us:
✶ Last-minute drinking session with friends in New York – most likely, this refers to an evening after the V Magazine party, which took place on February 10th, in New York. The party was thrown after V Magazine published an interview with LP together with a stunning photoshoot by Robin Harper. LP was invited to perform some songs by Kendall Jenner. You can read it here.
✶ I know that Beyoncé was snubbed and I think that’s fucked up – LP refers to the Grammy 2017 winners and the fact that Adele won 5 awards, while Beyoncé only two (although she had 9 nominations).
✶ Her new record is set for release on the 21st of April – referring to when it is to be released in the UK, as LP already released her 10-track-long record, Lost On You (named for the title of the successful song), in a dozen or so European countries and Canada on December 9th of 2016. The tracklist of the UK edition has not yet been disclosed, so we’re not sure if it’ll be the same as our continental edition.
