LP Announces New Single, "Muddy Waters" Premieres Today

We’re incredibly thrilled to welcome LP to the Vagrant family! Today LP will release a special, two-song project – Muddy Waters – under Vagrant Records. Produced by Mike Del Rio from alt-pop band POWERS, her new endeavor will feature title track “Muddy Waters” and “Lost on You.” Click HERE or press play below to hear “Muddy Waters” via Noisey.

Staying true to LP’s distinctive pop form, “Muddy Waters” is a cinematic offering that magnificently showcases her powerful, arena-built vocal range. The single sonically stomps with a thick, church-soul melody. Her lyrics stir like a raging storm of emotions and troubled tensions fueled by a destructive relationship. Folks in Los Angeles will be able to catch these new tracks and more live at LP’s intimate residency shows on November 3rd and November 10th at No Vacancy.

LP recently appeared on CONAN with JR JR – formally Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – to perform the duo’s single “Gone.” LP is a vet to the late night television circuit having recently performed her own singles “Into The Wild” and “Night Like This” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and more.
