LP Returns With Another Stirring Anthem In “Golden,” New Album “Love Lines” Out On Sep. 29

LP by Ryan Jay

With a lionhearted croon LP has returned with a new single “Golden,” the first new taste of the artist’s forthcoming album Love Lines which arrives on Sep. 29. They will also be kicking off a long run of tour dates this fall with stops at the House of Blues in Anaheim on October 21 and at the Youtube Theater in Los Angeles on November 24. It wasn’t long ago that we were reveling in the soaring bliss of their last album Churches but now the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter has made their glorious return. Bringing with them the kind of emotionally radiant and euphoric anthem that has made them so compelling close to a decade since their debut album.

“Golden” is filled with all the glowing hallmarks of LP’s alt-pop effervescence. There’s their beaming vocal leaps that echo the song’s title in their resplendence and the driving thrust of melody that surges behind their words. Rare is the song by LP that doesn’t inspire some sort of ecstatic catharsis of body and soul. Their latest offering is no different and provides a riveting crescendo alongside their flooring howls. “We are golden,” they wail in that stratosphere scratching wail of theirs. “We’re not broken.” Flooding the already enthused melody with their impossibly infectious electric expression of self-love and personal growth.

“This is the essence of me and what I’ve spent my life doing and cultivating and trying to understand and figure out,” shares LP. “Even as a human, I feel like I just keep getting more and more dense, concentrated. I’m more me every fucking year. I’m like that coffee that you gotta add water to that’s like 15 times the strength.”


With the release of “Golden” also comes a music video directed by Stephen ‘Norswrthy’ Schofield. It’s a visually stunning video that finds LP wandering through a gorgeous home at golden hour — moving from nude body to nude body that lies sprawled around similarly glowing covered in gleaming gold bodypaint. As they make it to the living room, they take the time to slow dance with one of the women, lost in the blissful waves that crash within the song. By the end it’s just LP and their band jamming out by the pool — surrounded by these golden people. It’s a beautiful visual that perfectly meshes with the song’s gleaming attitude.
