Lauran Hibberd announces new album 'Girlfriend Material'

Following on from the release of her much-loved debut LP 'Garageband Superstar' last year, Lauran Hibberd has now announced her plans for a new studio album, arriving next year.

The new full-length 'Girlfriend Material' will include the previously shared comeback singles 'I Suck At Grieving' and 'Honda Civic', is being previewed by the new lead track 'Mary', and is set to be released on the 22nd March via Virgin Music.

Speaking about the new full-length, she said, “Welcome to ‘Girlfriend Material’, here you will find the 12 stage instruction manual on how to make the perfect girlfriend in under an hour. Listen more than once to ensure perfection. Making this record came oddly naturally, it felt like it was supposed to come out of me and I’ve never felt so attached to a body of songs like this. I think i’m at a point in my life where I’ve started to really experience ‘life’, with going through losing a parent, having a life altering break up, living on my own for the first time, and exploring who the ‘f*vk’ i actually am. Everything I am right now is in this album. It’s the best thing I’ve ever made, and I’ve worked with some incredible people in the process. It’s definitely been the one thing that’s kept me going over the last year, and I hope it can do the same for other people. with love, Lauran Hibberd (100% girlfriend material).”

While adding about 'Mary', “‘Mary’ is my favourite song I’ve ever written, it’s the soundtrack to a great day. YES it’s a true story, and YES everybody needs a ‘mary’ in their life. After having a particularly rough year, having this song in my back pocket became a breakthrough for me - like a crack in the curtain where the light slips in.”
