Ahead of its release this Friday (October 8), Lala Lala has previewed her upcoming album I Want The Door To Open with its closing track, ‘Utopia Planet’. The track features saxophone by Sen Morimoto as well as a recording of Lillie West’s grandmother. Check out its accompanying visual, created by Meggie van Zwieten, below.
“‘Utopia Planet’ was born because my friend Kara Jackson and I challenged each other to write a song about Utopia,” West said of the new song in a statement. “I tried to imagine a great expanse, abundance, an open door. It’s an invitation to surrender. I used a recording of my grandmother to take you further into another world.”
Lala Lala’s new album, the follow-up to 2018’s The Lamb, includes the previously released singles ‘Prove It’, ‘DIVER’, and ‘Color of the Pool’.
