The 'Death Valley' EP, a preview of her forthcoming full-length on Vagrant Records, follows LP's 2014 major label debut, 'Forever For Now.' With its instantly recognizable single "Into The Wild," which was omnipresent as the soundtrack to a Citibank ad campaign and racked up nearly 10 million streams on Spotify alone, the record was a breakout critical smash.

"My natural propensity is toward being an upbeat person and writing in an inclusive, 'we're all in this together' kind of way," she explains. "I like the idea of music uniting people and galvanizing them. That song just kind of wrote itself in that way." 

Perhaps that’s the humility speaking (LP is, after all, a remarkably hard worker, constantly bouncing between her own breakout career as an artist and the cadre of stars who count on her inimitable perspective as a writer), but the idea that songs can write themselves is central to 'Death Valley.' This was music that poured out of her before she knew what it was about before she lived through the heartbreak and pain and ultimate redemption that inspired it. The songs on 'Death Valley' may have known what was coming before LP did, but you don't need to be clairvoyant to see the future awaiting an artist this charismatic and gifted.
