LAUREL releases a Synth-Infused Piano Ballad, “Only One”

LAUREL (@classiclaurel) is a British-born, LA-based singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, she released a synth-infused piano ballad, “Only One.”

LAUREL – “Only One” Visualizer

“Only One” explores the intoxicating euphoria of infatuation. With soaring vocals and soul-stirring instrumentation, the track weaves together themes of longing and desire with emotive lyricism: “You’re the only one that sets fire to my sun, burning with a fire when you look at me.” Inspired by the complexities of falling in love, “Only One” perfectly encapsulates the bittersweet in a polished, emotional single.

Speaking about the inspiration behind “Only One,” LAUREL stated, “Falling so deeply in love. It’s a new love but a sure love, surer than anything you’ve ever felt. It’s intimidating – you aren’t sure whether you can trust them yet, and they feel the same. A part of you wants to run away, but really you can’t. You don’t have a choice but to see it through because they’re the only one.”

“Only One” arrives just weeks after LAUREL’s UK and EU headline tour announcement, marking her highly anticipated return to the stage, following her triumphant sold-out intimate showcase at Hackney’s Oslo earlier this year. The tour will kick off on October 20th at G2 in Glasgow, followed by performances at Academy 3 in Manchester on October 21st, before arriving at the iconic KOKO, London on October 22nd. The U.K. dates are followed by a run of EU shows across Amsterdam, Paris, Antwerp, Cologne, and Berlin. Remaining tickets are available at

“Only One” will resonate with Tove Lo, Kesha, and Charli XCX supporters, and it will be featured on LAUREL’s upcoming studio album PALPITATIONS, due for release on the 14th of June via Communion Records.


LAUREL - Palpitations - album cover

PALPITATIONS is a reinvention of epic proportions – a full-throated reintroduction to a musician who has, to this point, been known for windswept pop and grunge-inflected folk. Bright, passionate, and reckless in its pursuit of emotional truth, it’s the work of a mature songwriter with a restless spirit: LAUREL in her final form.

Contained in these 11 songs are all of life’s highs and lows, coated in gleaming ‘80s lacquer and shot through with tension and ecstasy. All you need to know about this new iteration of LAUREL is contained right in the album title:

“This album is adrenaline-filled – everything is felt hard,” LAUREL stated. “Palpitations, in the body, aren’t usually a sign of anything really bad – they’re usually emotionally driven. I loved the idea that something can feel so strong that it will make your heart skip a beat.”
