Other Pleasures | Jul 24, 2019

This has all been stunning, and particularly because of one thing – as a singer and performer, LP really doesn’t have to prove anything to anybody. We couldn’t imagine there would be any expectation for her to outdo herself yet again. At this level of artistic mastery, that would simply be wrong. Read more

Lauren and LP did a bit of collaboration on “Sheet Stains”- the sixth song on Lauren Ruth Ward’s debut full length album, Well, Hell (2017).

When LP opened her American tour back in February, she put one new song on the setlist, the brilliant “Girls Go Wild.” In June, she kicked off her Summer European Tour similarly, introducing another new song, “Dreamer,” at her tour opening show in Italy. We had the pleasure of hearing “Dreamer” live for the first time shortly after, on the second night of the tour, in the most magical set-up of the Merano Botanical Garden, with a tiny little stage placed in the middle of the pond. Read more

LP wrote this song with her mentor, Billy Steinberg, alongside Billy’s long-time songwriting partner, Josh Alexander. It could have happened around 2011, when LP was writing songs for her then upcoming record, Forever For Now. They were collaborating extensively back then, as they also wrote “Savannah” and “Salvation” together, each of which made it onto the album (and also “Magic,” which will appear on the deluxe version.)
