Ladyhawke aka Pip Brown has just announced the release of her third album ‘Wild Things’ to be released via Mid Century Records.
The first single is ‘Sweet Fascination’ and it’s a glorious return to form for the one-woman synth-pop outfit whose self titled debut 2008 album peaked at No. 16 on the U.K. album charts and No. 1 in Australia and New Zealand’s album charts.
“People wonder why there’s always a massive gap between my albums,” says Brown, “The reason is both complicated and easy. The simple explanation: I’ve never released anything I’m not proud of. That’s important to me. I wanted this album to reflect the frame of mind I was in when creating it. I tried very hard to change my life for the better, and to create a positive and bright environment to exist in. This album really is a reflection of the headspace I found myself in after achieving this. Colourful is one word in particular that springs to mind.”
Brown’s conviction to authenticity led her on this third album journey, which started back in 2013. She scrapped a full album’s worth of material before taking around a year to craft the blissed-out ‘Wild Things’ with producer Tommy English (Børns, Tiësto, Dark Waves), whom she met through her L.A. neighbor, tattoo artist/musician Kat Von D.
“I think I went even more synthy and poppy this time around,” Brown says of the buoyant ‘Wild Things.’ “I feel good for the first time in 10 years. I have a clear mind! I have a wife. I feel stable. That is what I’m celebrating.
