  • Liz Lawrence Announces New Album “Peanuts”, Premieres New Song “Big Machine” on BBC Radio 1

  • British singer-songwriter Liz Lawrence has announced that her fourth studio album “Peanuts” will be released on June 7, 2024.

    The album is her first body of work in three years since the 2021 album “The Avalanche” and comprises a 11-track.
    She recorded the album with producer Ali Chant at his studio in Bristol, over two weeks.
    Liz Lawrence explained about working with Ali Chant, “I wanted the record to have been touched by someone other than myself. I messaged him, saying I wanted to make a record that sounded like Cate Le Bon meets Primal Scream, or Beck meets Gorillaz. And he was into it.”

    Liz Lawrence said of the album, “The growing wealth gap, and being forced to drive to the big Tescos, and everything I see around me every day, but, at the same time, the album is a reflection of how terrible I was feeling, in myself, when I wrote it. They felt connected, somehow - I felt like shit, and so often it feels like the country has gone to sh*t.”
  • The album is influenced by her hometown, the West Midlands. She moved to West Midlands from London in 2020.
    She said, “It changed what I was writing about because it changed what I was looking at. Music, and culture, is so neglected outside of major cities. There's such a lot of regional snobbery. We are disconnecting from each other at a time when we've never needed connection more. I am afraid that we're losing physical spaces, and community spaces, and a sense of us all being together. More than ever, I think we have to rally against that loss.”

  • From the album, she premiered the first single called “Big Machine” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
    The track was written by Elizabeth Lawrence and Jennifer Decilveo, produced by Ali Chant.
    She said of the song, “The feeling of carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders, the frustration of trying to solve the climate crisis whilst the political classes drag their feet and the desire to do a Thoreau and go live in the woods. It's a nod to alternative living and the battle of the Beanfield. It's the book of trespass, it's the guarding of statues, it's my pot boiling over with frustration at the state of it all.”
