LAUFEY Collaborates with Warner Records’ ADAM MELCHOR On New Single

Twenty-one year old Icelandic-Chinese singer-songwriter, musician, cellist and pianist Laufey has had a whirlwind of a year. Her breakout single “Street By Street” earned her a big social following, hit #1 on Icelandic Radio, her own new music series on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Sounds, the distinction of Best New Artist at the Iceland Music Awards, and a big following that includes fans like Billie EilishWillow Smithdodie, and more. All of this took place before her debut EP entitled Typical of Me was even dropped this Spring, and has since been streamed over 10 million times across all platforms. Since, her headline shows in NYC, Los Angeles, and London sold out in a matter of hours, she performed with Lake Street Dive, and even collaborated with London’s premier orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, on a single entitled “Let You Break My Heart Again.”

Today, Laufey announces another exciting collaboration, this time in partnership with Warner Records artist Adam Melchor. Co-written by the two musicians, “Love Flew Away” seamlessly blends the talent of both Laufey and Melchor in a gorgeous ballad. Laufey says, “Adam has been one of my greatest musical idols in the past few years so it’s an incredible honor to release this song with him. Writing with Adam was so much fun and we found that we had similar experiences with the pain of long distance love – which we ultimately wrote the song about.” Melchor continues, “The first time I heard Laufey’s voice, I instantly knew I needed to sing with her. She came to my house one day and we just talked for about 7 hours and by the end we found we had so many things in common, relationship-wise. I showed her this idea that I had after leaving the person I had been seeing overseas, and how sometimes love feels like it flies away. She took the idea to the next level and we knew it would be incredibly powerful as a duet.” Listen to the song now HERE.

Laufey will tour this Fall with Ricky Montgomery and Alexander 23, perform at the London Jazz Festival this Fall, and headline shows in New York and Los Angeles. See below to find a show near you, and get remaining tickets HERE as most dates are entirely sold out.
