The artwork sleeve is reverse board black - and includes the 'London' poem written by Arlo Parks. Artwork sleeve both front and back created by Arlo Parks.
Includes tracks "Cola" and "Sophie." Sophie' is a song about "crumbling under expectations and feeling helpless, but with a persistent, quiet sense of hope underpinning it". True to form, it's a melodic and beautifully articulated sonnet, cementing the notion that she is overwhelmingly considered the majestic voice of Generation Z. attn: regarding tracklist, please note 'george' lower case is not a typo!
"Arlo Parks has carved out a niche in committing to music the joyous highs and crushing lows of the emotional rollercoaster that is adolescence. With crushes and comedowns her themes, the west Londoner (raised in Hammersmith) makes confessional, coming-of-age bedroom pop, but says her inspirations range from Allen Ginsberg and Sylvia Plath to Jim Morrison and Fela Kuti." - The Guardian 2019
