Låpsley has finally come back to the music scene. The singer announced a new tour in support of her new EP These Elements which will be released this December. Låpsley will go on the road to four cities in Europe, including London on January 30. Tickets will be available for purchase this Friday via Seetickets.
Holly Lapsley Fletcher, who goes by the stage name Låpsley, has eventually returned with new music and new tours. It has been over four years since the release of her acclaimed debut Long Way Home, and now the 23-year-old singer/songwriter is ready to put out a new EP titled These Elements. The EP includes four tracks that, according to the artist, are about “emotional love, physical desire, depression and self-worth. Everything I’ve gone through in the last four years is in these four songs.”
The first single “My Love Was Like the Rain” is the first taste off the upcoming EP. The song is filled upbeat alternative R&B vibe mixed with electronic sound, an impressive reminder of how chill and emotional Låpsley’s music is. The singer also reminisces the feeling of love and pain in the track, “Remember when you said / My love was like the rain / Not the sweet sound after the drought.”
Låpsley was nominated in BBC Sounds long list back in 2015, with many critics describing her as a female version of James Blake. Her first album Long Way Home debuted on number 32 on UK Albums Chart, spawning well-received singles such as “Hurt Me”, “Station”, and “Love Is Blind”. After this album, the Merseyside-raised singer took a hiatus for four years to “have time and isolation to be able ‘to create something that I thought was the truest version of myself'”, posted Låpsley on her Twitter before her comeback.

To further promote her comeback, the These Elements EP will be released on December 6, and she will go on tour for four consecutive dates to four major cities in Europe.
