Hot on the heels of their successful comeback after over a million album sales on their debut, UK band Lawson have returned with two singles, ‘Lovers’ and ‘Animals’ in the past couple of months. Their latest release, ‘She Don’t Even Know’, now showcases a slow-burning 80’s love song. This is the third single off their new album, coming in 2021, which will be available to pre-order soon.

On the new track singer Andy Brown said, 

“’She Don’t Even Know’ – a track I had the idea for when we first started the band. Recently brought to life and a lyric rewrite with Jacob Attwooll (Tom Grennan, Emily Burns, Olly Murs) – more in keeping with tracks from our first album Chapman Square with heartbreak as the theme.”

Lawson – completed by Joel Peat (guitar), Ryan Fletcher (bass) and Adam Pitts (drums) – reunited from their hiatus in 2018 to headline a show which sold out in a matter of minutes. Still the best of friends, the reaction they received inspired them to start a new chapter in their career.

As Andy recalls fondly,

“I think the look on people’s faces and the fun we all had together that night made us realise how much we love and miss our fans and each other. We have all been busy with different things the past few years but it felt like now was the perfect time to get back in the studio and just enjoy making music together again.”

That return gathered even more pace when they shared the tongue-in-cheek documentary ‘Lawson – Where Are They Now?’. A playful parody of the music documentary, the video featured guests including Robbie Williams, Rick Astley and Radio 1’s Scott Mills, and quickly started trending on Twitter.

Four years is a long time in music, but Lawson’s absence has produced a mature, refined and exciting new sound. Newly signed to Cooking Vinyl, they’re set to add to a career which has already encompassed 50 million streams on Spotify and 100 million views on YouTube.
