EIGHT WEEK COUNTDOWN TO RELEASE OF HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ALBUM CHURCHES ON DECEMBER 3RD
Internationally-famed, singer-songwriter LP released her captivating new single “Angels” along with an accompanying video directed by Stephen “Norswrthy” Schofield (Halsey, Pharrell, Taylor Swift). The track was produced by Nate Campany (Tove Lo, K.Flay, Christina Aguillera) and Kyle Shearer (Becky G, Tove Lo, Carly Rae Jepsen), collectively known as Valley Girl, along with the album’s executive producer, Mike Del Rio (Kylie Minogue, X Ambassadors, Skylar Grey). “Angels” is the fifth single from LP’s highly anticipated new album, CHURCHES, set for release on December 3rd via SOTA Records.

About the video’s creation, Schofield said, “My inspiration for ‘Angels’ was simply: let’s shoot LP in a nondescript setting —black backdrops and curtains with minimal propping— so that the focus is on her and her storytelling (the lyrics). We can add in supplemental footage —three redheaded Raphaelites or ‘Angels’— in a way that broadly informs the themes embedded in LP’s lyrics. I chose those Raphaelite-like subjects because I am personally interested in the works of Waterhouse, Dante Rossetti, and William Hunt. Something about pale skin, blue veins, and red hair pops from the canvas in an almost hyper-realistic way. Add this to LP’s image/performance and you get a potently beautiful palette from which to paint any kind of visual story. I hope you all enjoy ‘Story 1: [Angels].’ More stories to come!”
