English singer Låpsley has returned from a three-year absence with “My Love Was Like the Rain,” the first taste of her new EP, These Elements.
On the atmospheric track, the singer explores embracing “the beauty in the darkness and the light,” she said in a press statement. “[It’s] about accepting the elements that make me human and make me an individual, both the positive and negative aspects.” The song also received a slow-motion visual treatment.
Alongside the song’s release and EP announcement, Låpsley also took to Instagram to explain her lengthy hiatus. “The last few years have been a journey of self-discovery,” she wrote. “I needed that time and isolate to care for my mental wellbeing, in order to create something that I felt was the truest version of myself.”
Låpsley’s forthcoming EP, These Elements, will be her first release since her 2016 debut album, Long Way Home. The project is due out November 22 via XL Recordings.
