Lauran Hibberd has shared a brand new track, and announced the details of her debut album.
New track ‘Still Running (5K)’ features – obviously – Limp Bizkit’s DJ Lethal. “If ‘Comparison is the Thief of Joy’ I obviously don’t want myself to be happy”, explains Hibberd. “‘Still Running (5k)’ explores my self-destructive ideals. In a world where everyone’s life looks better online, and everyone’s thighs don’t touch except in real life, it explains what it feels like to start believing what you read. It’s dangerous to compare your life to others, and it’s somewhat humorous that this is what we let ourselves become. Being the first track off my debut album, with newer hip hop influences, but the same humour-coated stomach aches, I have managed to successfully write a song all about running on the premise that it has absolutely nothing to do with running.”
The album – titled ‘Garageband Superstar’ – is set to arrive on 19th August via Virgin Music.
Speaking about the title, she reveals: “‘It’s named after the first track I wrote for this album, it made sense to me to call it this because I sometimes do feel like I’m famous when I’m in my bedroom and writing songs on garageband. Also I’m very aware that as soon as I leave that space, I’m just like everyone else. And I’m ok with that”.
