Laura Pergolizzi, better known as LP, began her career in music over a decade ago. Her long path to success began in the early 2000’s when she released two solo albums, which lead to conversations with Def Jam and RedOne. When all conversations appeared futile, LP eventually made her way as a songwriter for major players like Christina Aguilera and Rihanna. It wasn’t until 2012 that LP refocused attention on her own songwriting and released the Into The Wild (Live at EastWest Studios) EP, whose title track landed a spot on a Citibank commercial receiving heavy exposure. This time the exposure was just what LP needed and in 2014 she released her first full-length in over 10 years, Forever For Now.
Hailed as an album ‘filled with sprawling pop songs that soar’ (American Songwriter), and ‘heart-stopping power pop ballads’ (NPR), Forever For Now was an album of celebration, of both LP’s career as well as her personal relationships. ‘It was a really happy time for me for all of the obvious reasons and that really came out in the songwriting,” LP reflects. ‘And if that album was the celebration, this new album is the hangover.”
Serving as a follow up to Forever For Now, LP is gearing up to release a new full-length (yet to be named), her debut on Vagrant Records. In preparation for the record, LP released an EP Death Valley. Full of dark and brooding context, Death Valley resonates like a gospel accounting for the life and death of a toxic relationship. Reflective of the long-term relationship LP had been entangled in, 'Muddy Waters' context is two fold, also representing the state our planet is in environmentally speaking. ‘Muddy Waters' is definitely a relationship song, but while writing I just kept comparing my situation to how we treat our planet. We just keep destroying and destructing, and we know we’re doing it, but we keep going anyways.’
Both 'Lost On You' and 'Muddy Waters' convey the loneliness and confusion LP was faced with, it only felt natural to release them together as a precursor for the album to come. ‘These two tracks have in common that they were written before I really knew what was up. Looking back, I was in denial. I just didn’t want to deal with reality. For that reason, they feel good together and are the perfect departure from Forever For Now.’
LP's EP Death Valley was released on June 26, 2016, with an album to follow in 2017.
