Lola Young released “Pill or a Lullaby,” a song from her forthcoming EP, After Midnight. Accompanied only by piano, Young flashes back on moments from the night before, as the dawn finds her in need of a “pill or a lullaby.” She recorded the raw, emotional track in a single take, co-producing with frequent collaborator manuka. Listen HERE.
After Midnight, which will be released by Capitol Records, tells the story of one night in Young’s life, tracing the hours between midnight and 5 a.m. A short film will accompany the EP. A late-night rendezvous takes her from feeling confident and in control to gradually becoming more vulnerable and, eventually, entering a manic state of mind, where she leaves nothing on the table.
