ALBUM NEWS: Arlo Parks - 'Collapsed in Sunbeams'

I sat down to write this post and saw that Arlo Parks has been crowned the Artist of the Year by BBC Introducing. Absolutely delighted - from the tracks that I've heard (and adore) and interviews with Arlo speaking about her music, it feels like it couldn't happen to somebody more deserving. I'm so so over the moon to share that she is releasing her debut album Collapsed In Sunbeams on the ever-brilliant Transgressive Records on 29th January 2021. Speaking on the record, Arlo says "my album is a series of vignettes and intimate portraits surrounding my adolescence and the people that shaped it. It is rooted in storytelling and nostalgia - I want it to feel both universal and hyper specific."

The album news comes alongside brand new single Green Eyes which I am absolutely loving at the moment. She describes it as "as song about self-discovery, self-acceptance and adolescence. It is supposed to uplift and comfort those going through hard times." With backing vocals and guitar from Clairo, the track has a video directed by Louis Bhose. As ever, brilliant. Is 29th January here yet?
