I’ve listened to Lucy’s album a hundred times over already, and yet each time I find myself back to the beginning listening to ‘Fight for it’ I fall in love as if it’s the first time.
We all remember Lucy Spraggan, right? You probably recognise her from the X Factor, but boy, has she been going places since then. Having released ‘I hope you don’t mind me writing’ on her own record label CTRL Records, it would seem Lucy knows exactly where she wants her career to be. And she’s nailing it.
When Lucy Spraggan released ‘Dear you’ her fans went a little crazy, overloading Twitter with love for the heart-wrenching piano ballad that highlighted the dark parts of her life. With every lyric Lucy was opening up with her fans, letting them get that little bit closer to her life as she shared her experiences.
With the aim to make talking about suicide and the prevention of it the norm, Lucy Spraggan has brought an otherwise taboo subject to the surface, spilling her hear out in the form of this incredible new album.
But what else has Spraggan got in store? Well, ‘I hope you don’t mind me writing’ is catchy and lighthearted, with ‘Freddos aren’t 10p’ reaching out to our ever-so-British nature. The entire album is heartfelt (Freddos included…) and sincere, filling an obvious gap in the music industry that is otherwise being ignored.
