After much anticipation on my part, Gabrielle Aplin finally came out with a new album! Light Up the Dark was released in May of this year. I’ve just gotten around to listening to it and it is FABULOUS as always, but there is definitely a slightly darker pop sound than the gentle folk that her single “Home” brought us. We saw a preview of this change in her song “Salvation,” which entirely stole my heart. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to it, do so now. The music video is just as beautifully crafted as the song itself.
So Gabrielle is making a transition (you can even see it in the cover of the album shown!) and I have a feeling it’s gonna keep getting better. She also released her song ‘Heavy Heart’ from the album onto iTunes to promote the album, which is due for release on September 18th, so make sure to get that. For now, give her new song a listen!
