If this is half as good as her debut it’ll be one of my albums of the year.

I am so excited even though I‘m still not over For All We Know.

It‘s an outstanding record which rockets past SZA & Co.

Another Lifetime did not capture me as much as I wanted it to.

But her debut album is a hard one to tackle.

Make It Out Alive (feat. SIR) is out on Spotify and iTunes (along with the album pre-order).

I feel the hook is very solid and the lyrics are very memorable.

All too deep too deep
To get out of here
House burnt down burnt down
To the f*** ground


What is it about? Anxiety?

New track Curiosity is out on Spotify and it’s the best one of the bunch thus far. :D

It's shaping up to be a very good record even though I kind of question the single choices she has made for the album.

I was never too fond of Another Lifetime and the single track she just released yesterday - If You Ever - may be sonically interesting but lacks a proper hook.

Others than that, "Saturn" displays great potential just from the snippets given. Orbit could be a killer ballad whereas Don't Change is so memorable that I could immediately sing along to it.

I am curious to hear the songs we haven't heard so far:

Gabriel
Love Supreme
Yellow Of The Sun
A Life Like This

I'm shocked how little recognition she gets for such an amazing record!

I mean there was an album survivor once for her first record - and people voted!

I am seriously impressed. This album is so moody and beautifully executed without lacking melody and harmony.

I also think that the album tracks are far better than the singles. I am very happy to see she can still deliver on album length.

My ranking after the first listen:

1. Orbit - clear favourite! Nothing is as beautiful as this.
2. A Life Like This
3. Don’t Change
4. Curiosity
5. Gabriel / Make It Out Alive

Solid album. Enjoyed it a lot more than her first. She really went full on urban this go round which I love. Saturn (the song) is everything.

She had a clearer concept for this record and it showed. Overall I think she delivered PERFECTION with Orbit. The lyrics are picturesque and it‘s still playful and fun.
