London-based singer, songwriter and producer Holly ‘Låpsley’ Fletcher today reveals details of her highly-anticipated debut album. The 19 year old will release Long Way Home on Friday, March 4th on XL Recordings. The twelve track album features new versions of her previous acclaimed releases “Hurt Me”, “Falling Short”, “Painter” and “Station”, as well as brand new single “Love Is Blind.” To celebrate the announcement of Long Way Home, Låpsley will make her late night TV debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this Friday with a performance of her widespread single “Falling Short.”

Long Way Home documents a turbulent time in Låpsley’s life — a period in which she revelled in her new-found music career as it took her from Liverpool to London to Los Angeles and back again. “It’s an autobiography of my emotions and events over the past year,” she says. “Everything that’s happened, I’ve channelled in some way into a song – whether that’s the theme of a long distance relationship, or something that he’s said, or the way that I’ve felt, or an argument. I only revisit the memories of that relationship when I go into the studio. I think it’s helped me, to be able to collect everything for those moments when I’m writing. I think that’s what’s driven this album.”

Låpsley’s determined views on her own production have ensured her involvement in every element of these songs — a fact that in the early days seemed to confuse many of the producers she met. “They didn’t want to listen to me,” she says, “or they think a girl’s just there to add a top line, or they come to the table with ideas already. Straight away if I come in to a studio and someone says ‘I’ve written something for you’, then I’ll just walk out. I don’t care. I’m not there for that.”
