Gabrielle Aplin has announced the release of her forthcoming third album Dear Happy, due for release on January 17th via AWAL and her own label Never Fade Records.

Regarding the upcoming album Gabrielle says, “I’m so excited to release Dear Happy into the world. It’s been a few years in the works as I figured out what I wanted to say with my third album. The start of this album, without knowing at the time, coincided with the moment I made a definitive decision to start to unravel and rewire my brain. Dear Happy subsequently became a documentation of this journey to myself. I wanted to use writing as a way of understanding.

“Sonically I wanted to capture these moments and experiences in a positive light. I want to listen back to these songs in five years and hear happiness and positivity. It’s an album about saying “f**k it!” to your worries and insecurities. Or maybe it’s an album that invites your worries and insecurities to sit with you. It’s an album about saying “no”. It’s an album about saying “Yes”. It’s an album that is a past, present and future letter to myself.”

To mark the announcement, Gabrielle Aplin has released the brand new track Kintsugi. The bright pop song celebrates strength and clearer perspective over past struggles.

Dear Happy is an uplifting pop record that chronicles Gabrielle’s life, and the experiences and cultures she has been inspired by whilst touring and travelling the world over the past couple of years.

In support of her forthcoming new album Dear Happy, Gabrielle Aplin has announced a UK and Ireland headline tour for March 2020.
