Gabrielle Aplin announces new album Light Up The Dark

Singer-songwriter Gabrielle Aplin has announced full details of her new album Light Up The Dark. 

The album is the 22-year old's follow-up to her 2013 debut LP English Rain, which you can preview on the right-hand side of the page. It will be released on September 18th and you can hear the album's title and opening track now by scrolling down and clicking. 

Aplin has written the album with long-time writing partner Luke Potashnick and has stated that Joni Mitchell and Feist's The Reminder are big influences on the album, she said: "Her voice is just here, right at the front, and everything sits around it perfectly. I’ve also become much more comfortable writing songs about other people’s stories as well as my own, much of which is inspired by travelling and everything I’ve seen since my first album.”
