Aplin says: “ ‘Waking Up Slow’ is a super positive song! It’s about that euphoric “aha!” moment after feeling perhaps misplaced, or stagnant. It’s about that moment where you decide to just let go, letting what will be, be and choosing to be present.”
The past few years have been a whirlwind for Gabrielle Aplin whose career took off when she built a massive fanbase by posting videos of herself singing online back in 2012. Aplin went on to release her debut album English Rain in 2013 which spawned her iconic cover of ‘The Power Of Love’ which reached #1 in the UK. With a slew of further top 10 hits including ‘Please Don’t Say You Love Me’ ‘Home’ ‘Salvation’ and ‘Panic Cord’. English Rain is now certified GOLD in the UK.
18 months of international touring followed, where Aplin racked up a further 3 #1s worldwide. Playing shows and going on tour all over the world had an impact on Gabrielle and fed into her sophomore album ‘Light Up The Dark’ (2015) which displayed a maturing in Aplin’s sound with the anthemic and ambitious singles like ‘Sweet Nothing’ and title track ‘Light Up The Dark’.
With a seemingly relentless work ethic and creative output, Aplin released her ‘Miss You’ EP on her own label Never Fade Records in late 2016. A video of Aplin singing leaf track “Miss You’ racked up a whopping 5 million views on Facebook and the Miss You EP has so far racked up an impressive 40 million streams.
Following a summer of festivals all over the UK, and a tour in Japan
Aplin will head out for a string of North American tour dates in September/ October 2017 taking in major cities across the US including L.A, San Francis-co, Chicago and New York.
