LP Transcends Genre on New Album 'Churches'
It's the sixth full-length offering from the Long Island-born singer-songwriter
Published Dec 03, 2021A new LP from none other than LP: Churches arrives today via Dine Alone Records. Alongside the release, the Long Island-born singer-songwriter is sharing a new Stephen Schofield-directed video for "Conversation."
Churches follows the artist's fifth record, 2018's Heart to Mouth. The 15-track body of work is led by a slew of already-released singles, including the powerful lead "The One That You Love."
Having penned hits for the likes of Rihanna, Cher and the Backstreet Boys, LP's songcraft shines through as they navigate the histrionics of emotion. The singer-songwriter finds churches in unconventional places, worshipping at love's altar — in relation to both others and the self — by embracing the qualities of myriad genres, shifting from synthpop to indie rock to country-folk in fluid sweeps.
The record's executive producer Mike Del Rio said in a statement:
This album was made in a time where human connection and community was put on hold, so subconsciously, we imagined this music being experienced as some sort of sweet release after a dark time. As LP's community continues to grow, so does the palette of what works in the LP universe. It was made with a lot of love, sincerity and friendship, with the hope that it translated into a body of work to be enjoyed by all. As fluid and as genre-less as LP is, the music we make is always a pursuit of reflecting their philosophy with a message of love and connection at its centre.
