On August 3rd UK singer songwriter Lauren Ray returns with her new EP – ‘Inside This Silence’ featuring the brand new single ‘Be A Man.’
Recorded in Germany with multi-platinum producer Mark Smith, ‘Inside This Silence’ showcases Lauren’s sublime vocals with intricate melodies and the kind of honest, accessible song writing that has already won her an army of loyal fans, thanks to her acclaimed 2016 debut album ‘We Will Need Courage.’
Each of the four songs on the EP deal with the ‘unspoken’ or the underlying feelings we have but may be hard to voice. The upbeat lead single, ‘Be A Man,’ is Lauren’s tongue in cheek take on the phrase ‘Be A Man’. “It’s often used to mean Be Strong, Powerful, Macho, particularly when it comes to relationships” says Lauren, “but in this instance I’m using it to say Be vulnerable and say what you’re feeling – something both men and women find hard to do when it comes to taking a risk in lust and love”. And don’t miss the captivating accompanying video, coming soon.
Lauren released her debut album, ‘We Will Need Courage’ in 2016, since then she’s been busy writing her new album, and enjoying an extensive touring schedule. She opened for Lucy Spraggan’s 31-date UK tour in October 2017, followed by a 12-date UK tour supporting Rebecca Ferguson in February 2018 which enabled Lauren to play her biggest venues yet, including the 02 Shepherds Bush Empire and Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. Lauren’s most recent tour was supporting Anastacia on her European tour in April and May of this year, including shows in Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy.
‘Inside This Silence’ is available from 3 August. The new album will be coming later this year.
