It’s been quite the fate for Orla Gartland fans. Since releasing her first EP in 2013, it’s been quite the road, properly kicking into full gear with the one-two punch of last year’s Freckle Season and Summer Session EPs.
Well, your wait is just about over: today, Gartland announced her debut LP, Girl on the Internet. It’s the culmination of all her hard work, all her time spent honing her lyrical craft and production talent (and that’s its artwork above). It’s due out August 20.
Speaking on the incoming release, she shares, “Announcing my debut album feels like a moment I’ve been waiting for for years. Something clicked into place last year – I grew into my role as a producer and lyrically I knew what I wanted to say. Although this album was made in 2020 it isn’t laced with lockdown blues – it feels more like the soundtrack of new time to me; a sunnier time, a more hopeful time. I’m so proud of this record and beyond excited for everyone to hear it!“
To kick things off in earnest – following three singles previously released from the project – she’s shared the gentle yet pained piano-tinged ballad “Do You Mind?” Check out its lyric video below, and stay tuned for more from Gartland very, very soon.
