LISTEN: Lucy Rose - 'No Words Left'

"song after song after song, all about me, and my misery"

Just over a month ago, the inimitable singer-songwriter Lucy Rose released her fourth studio album into the world. From first listen I had a lot of love for this record, about which Lucy wrote "these songs have allowed me to get to know myself in a way I haven't before and I'm sure after you listen to it you'll end up knowing me better as well." I'm a little late in sharing it, but in case the release passed you by I want to tell you that No Words Left is truly a gem of a record.

It's a gorgeously raw album, centring around Lucy's vocals, guitar, piano and strings. No drums! Intimate and staggeringly personal, the record explores issues of anxiety, isolation and uncertainty without any sugarcoating. It feels like Lucy is pulling us into her world and letting us know that the struggles we might be feeling aren't just our own. At just 36 minutes in length the album should definitely be listened to as a whole - this is helped along by a supporting video showing Lucy performing each of the tracks, directed by Chris McGill which you can watch below.

Having just finished a UK tour, Lucy's only remaining UK headline show of the year is on 4th December (it'll be here soon enough...) at no less than the Barbican Centre. Tickets for that and a full list of her upcoming shows worldwide here.
