Laurel Releases Second Studio Album, ‘Palpitations’

LAUREL, the British-born, LA-based singer-songwriter, has just released her highly anticipated second studio album, PALPITATIONS, along with the catchy new single Coming Back for More. The track blends groovy beats with light, breezy lyrics, capturing the thrill of a new obsession.

PALPITATIONS explores themes of love, freedom, and vulnerability across its 11 tracks, all delivered with LAUREL’s signature pop brilliance. The album starts with 45 Degrees, showcasing her airy vocals and carefree lyrics, perfect for sun-soaked days. Wild Things, a euphoric, summer-ready pop anthem, follows closely behind. Burning Up dives into the relentless pursuit of change with an ’80s dance vibe, while Only One combines longing and desire with soulful lyrics and synth-infused piano melodies.

According to LAUREL, each song on PALPITATIONS represents a strong emotion—whether it’s love, sorrow, or euphoria—that makes your heart skip a beat. This album release comes on the heels of a sold-out show at London’s Oslo and strong support from the world’s biggest tastemakers.

LAUREL is also gearing up for a UK and EU headline tour starting October 20th in Glasgow, with stops in Manchester, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Antwerp, Cologne, and Berlin. Having previously performed with artists like MØ and Flume, and collaborated with brands like Burberry and Vivienne Westwood, LAUREL is set for a big year in 2024, solidifying her place in the pop world.
