Laurel shares her single, “Only One”, the track is lifted from her forthcoming album Palpitations, dropping on June 14th via Communion Records (Wunderhorse, Dizzy). The artist will play two live shows in America: on June 4th in New York and June 6th in Los Angeles.

Speaking about the inspiration behind “Only One”, LAUREL says the track is about “Falling so deeply in love. It’s a new love but a sure love, surer than anything you’ve ever felt. It’s intimidating – you aren’t sure whether you can trust them yet, and they feel the same. A part of you wants to run away, but really you can’t. You don’t have a choice but to see it through because they’re the ‘only one’.”

The new track arrives just weeks after LAUREL’s UK and EU headline tour announcement, marking her highly anticipated return to the stage, following her triumphant sold out intimate showcase at Hackney’s Oslo earlier this year. The tour will kick off on October 20th at G2 in Glasgow, followed by performances at Academy 3 in Manchester on October 21st, before arriving at the iconic KOKO, London on October 22nd. The UK dates are followed by a run of EU shows across Amsterdam, Paris, Antwerp, Cologne and Berlin.

Laurel has toured with MUNA, MØ, MS MR, Oh Wonder, and Flume on tour, also featured on Flume’s album Palaces, joined the musician on the main stage at Coachella 2022 and continued to perform with the Australian DJ across tastemaker stages throughout the year. More recently, the artist 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.
