Orla Gartland has released a new single, ‘Kiss Ur Face Forever’, her first new music since her 2021 debut album Woman on the Internet. Check it out below.
“This song is about being in love and split down the middle by it – on one side excited and energized, the other side cynical and withheld,” Gartland explained in a statement. “I really love the erratic guitars and the urgency of the drums in this track – hearing the intro literally gets my heart rate up.”
“I wrote ‘Kiss Ur Face Forever’ with Tom Stafford (my co-producer on my first smash-hit album ‘Woman on the Internet’) and my best friend Lauren Aquilina,” she continued. “Lauren and I live together and have been friends for 10+ years, since we were both tiny baby popstars. We had never written together up until this point – I’m such a fan of Lauren’s songwriting that I’d always been too nervous to ask – but it finally happened and unsurprisingly it was so fun and felt almost effortless to write with someone who knows me so well.”
Gartland recently formed the the band FIZZ alongside dodie, Greta Isaac, and Martin Luke Brown. Their debut album, The Secret to Life, is due out September 15 via Decca Records.
