He’s putting in personal words, personal sounds (listen to him talk about his belief in the voice as the most important instrument he owns) and universal ideas that really get to anyone with a heart.
Lauv’s announced his first ever Australian tour – the dates for which are here – and he’s thrown out the album idea in exchange for a ‘dynamic playlist’ called I met you when I was 18, which you can hear below. It’s basically a ‘story so far’ sorta sitch.
