Låpsley serves up self-empowerment on ‘Womxn’ & announces second album date


Låpsley has announced her long-awaited second album Through Water four years after her debut on XL Recordings on March 20th.

Since then, the DJ Koze Operator remix and last year’s Those Elements EP (which featured two tracks from the forthcoming album ‘My Love is Like The Rain’ and ‘Ligne 3’.

With Låpsley as the album’s main producer and writer, she whittled 100 tracks down to 10 for the record.

The ten songs reflect her newfound confidence, clarity and self-awareness as an artist, documenting a wealth of personal experiences and coming-of-age stories set against a thematic backdrop of water, climate, weather and the elements.

Today’s track ‘Womxn’ is an uplifting song with a self-empowering message served by soft electronic synth pop tones.

’The video directed by Jane Stockdale features female cyclists Anneleen Bosma, Jenna Meth and Yewande Adesia pushing themselves against the British winter elements.

I was 20 and in a pretty bad place when I wrote ‘Womxn’. It’s written hypothetically from a place in the future that was much more positive. It’s about having trust in the passage of time; about not knowing what to do right now but knowing that at some point you will know. And here we are in the future and I’m this stronger, more confident womxn, and I sing it and it’s my present.”
