Singer-songwriter LAUREL releases her second single, ‘Burning Up’, from her upcoming studio album PALPITATIONS, due for release on 14th June via Communion Records – pre-order the album here.

LAUREL says: “‘Burning Up’ is about not being able to keep up with yourself. The constant need for excitement, changeability, and adrenaline, which leaves you on the edge of a panic attack. No matter whether you’re in the city or living a simple life in the countryside, your mind is a jungle – relentless and exhausting. You’re trying to hold onto a sense of yourself, of normality, but in the end you lose yourself in it.”

Co-directed by LAUREL and Elliot Arndt, the music video follows the singer to the heart of a built-up, urban landscape where she stands at the epicentre of it all upon a towering building. Intertwining themes of introspection and vulnerability, the song and music video grapple with the relentless pursuit of change.

Coming in hot on the heels of a sold out intimate showcase celebrating her new creative era at London’s Oslo and the release of ‘Wild Things’ last month, LAUREL has already seen immense support from BBC Radio 1 Future Pop and Future Artists, and Australia’s Triple J. 2024 is gearing up for what promises to be an unforgettable year for LAUREL – a moment where she’ll finally step up to the pop throne.

Having previously joined the likes of MØ, Oh Wonder, Rag & Bone Man, and KT Tunstall on tour, LAUREL also featured on Flume’s critically acclaimed album Palaces, and joined the musician on the main stage at Coachella 2022 and continued to perform with the Australian DJ across tastemaker stages throughout the year. Recently, LAUREL collaborated with Kita Alexander and Snakehips. The songstress also finds herself wrapped up in the fashion world, having previously collaborated with esteemed brands such as Burberry, Ganni, Vivienne Westwood and many more.
