NEW MUSIC: LIZZY MCALPINE | RECKLESS DRIVING
Lizzy McAlpine unveils her newest single and its accompanying visual “reckless driving” featuring Ben Kessler. Directed by Gus Black (Phoebe Bridgers, Sheryl Crow), the music video is the latest entry culminating in a short film incorporating her previously released videos for the aforementioned singles. The track appears on McAlpine's forthcoming album, five seconds flat, set for release on April 8 on Harbour Artists & Music / AWAL Recordings. McAlpine's previously released singles "erase me," "doomsday," and "all my ghosts" continue to receive praise; NPR Music featured "doomsday" in their All Things Considered New Mix while Teen Vogue declared, "The Philadelphia-based songstress charges on the dark, mid-tempo track." Rolling Stone added, "['erase me'] has just the right combination of the singer/songwriter vibe with a cinematic crescendo that makes the song a perfect fit for radio and even Top 40. Predominantly produced by Philip Etherington and Ehren Ebbage, the 14-track album was recorded in Eugene, OR and at The Laundry Pile in Los Angeles. Five seconds flat also includes contributions from Grammy-Award winners FINNEAS and Jacob Collier and Ben Kessler and Laura Elliott. Furthermore, McAlpine is set for an extensive North American tour date with Dodie. The shows kick off in early February and include performances at New York's Kings Theatre, Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, Chicago's Riviera Theater and Philadelphia's The Fillmore, and multiple shows at Los Angeles Theatre at Ace Hotel.
