LP Releases Much Anticipated Album, Heart to Mouth
By: Hailey Hale
Musician Laura Pergolizzi, better known as LP, is back after much anticipation with her fifth studio album, and it’s the dreamy western wonderland we’ve all been waiting for. Coming off an extensive 2018 world tour, the singer proved that this year would be one of her best when she released new record Heart to Mouth on December 7. After the 37-year-old artist released her first breakthrough album ‘Lost on You’ in 2017, which earned her diamond and platinum ratings in European countries, everyone was eagerly awaiting what she would put out next. What she delivered proves that she is back with a vengeance and ready to conquer the world charts.
Releasing EP ‘Lost On You’ mid 2018 with three singles to tease her forthcoming album, the track ‘Girls Gone Wild’ was an automatic hit with fans and critics, and is already her fourth most popular track on streaming services . The musician also released new single ‘When I’m Over You’ which was produced by Mike Del Rio and gave fans the needed boost to tide them over until the album. With the teasing new singles and tour where she performed a couple of the new songs, fans were very excited for the new album.
When December 7th finally arrived, Heart to Mouth was released. The record contains 12 dreamy tracks and starts with title song ‘Dreamcatcher’, which perfectly sets up the theme of the album with it’s twangy guitar, and Pergolizzi’s intrinsic raspy vocals. The album is very dynamic though as every song brings a little something different, from one song being a soaring ballad and the next being a funky upbeat dance song, you cannot predict the sound of the next track. Even though the track lineup is diverse, it does not take away from the underlying theme of the western-indie love child Pergolizzi has created.
The care that LP took in creating this record shows, and the careful consideration is paying off. Every song is exciting and fans and critics alike have been showing their love for LP’s game changing record. With all the support the new record has gained, Pergolizzi announced a 2019 tour to showcase all the new album has to offer live, and shows are selling out fast! I would suggest grabbing an album and tickets while you can so you can experience the greatness that is Heart to Mouth.
