Beautiful, right? Although she released her first album 2001, it wasn't until about 2011 when that track "Into the Wild" blew up — and it remains her most popular song on Spotify. Since then, she's had several hits you'll probably recognize upon hearing them, including "Night Like This" and "Tokyo Sunrise." Fast-forward four years and LP is set to release her next EP (title to be determined) in early 2016.
That's not all. LP has even written for a few pop stars, including Rihanna, Christina Aguilera and Backstreet Boys. But don't worry: We'll talk more with her about her experience working with said musicians in our interview below...
LP: What I feel.
LP: All of them were memorable, but “Beautiful People” for Christina Aguilera was written with Nicole Scherzinger at her house, in her bedroom in The Hills. She's cool as f***, and she was just chillin' in the bed the whole time, while I was on some fluffy rug on the floor just thinking, "Huh, weird. This is surreal and fun, dammit."
LP: Sometimes there's a difference. There are certain things that I wouldn’t talk about in the songs I write for myself, but it frees me up to think outside from a more observational point of view. I'm always invested in the emotions, no matter what. A lot of times, it's just universal ideas that I've written for myself and it just gets cut by someone else.
LP: I would love to collaborate with Father John Misty just because I would love to hang with him and drink some wine, and I would probably be thoroughly entertained.
LP: Thanks. I am talking about my ex. I feel kind of Sinatra-ish with that song. I love that whole 'baby you broke my f***ing heart, but hey I'm gonna wear a nice suit and be cool still… and you're gonna miss me baby.' Long drag on a cigarette… fade to black.
LP: I kind of relate to all the songs deeply. They're all kind of in that lonely, heart place with a dash of confusion as far as what was really going on.
LP: It was inspired by how much I loved this person even though they were clearly not right for me anymore. Mostly, the place I was in psychically inspired me. I felt confused and disoriented and was searching for answers and figuring out what was really happening.
LP: Myself. To relax.
LP: Aretha Franklin, Édith Piaf, Joni Mitchell, Ann Wilson, Pat Benatar, Chaka Khan, Lucinda Williams, Dolly Parton, Patty Griffin, Chrissie Hynde... and many more, but these are OGs.
LP: Sexism has been unfortunately one of the main tenets of rock 'n' roll for as long as it's been around. Of course it's a long time coming and it's on both the business side and the artist side. I'm proud of these women for sticking up for themselves — and all women on a large platform. It's obviously the move (sic). Yes, I've definitely experienced it. I'm sorry to say that sometimes it's been so insidious that it just hangs around in the back of your mind and makes you feel bad about who you are. I think it's great to speak out and also to just lead by example, by being yourself at all times.
