Today sees London’s very own brazen popstar GIRLI announce her debut album Odd One Out, due on 5th April via PMR/Virgin EMI - Pre-Order HERE. In conjunction with her album announcement, GIRLI shares her latest single Deal With It - Listen HERE. GIRLI’s headline tour will coincide with her album release and she will take to the road from 5th April performing across the UK (tickets on sale February 1st).


The highly anticipated debut album ‘Odd One Out’ was co-written by GIRLI with various collaborators such as Fast Friends and MNDR / Peter Wade (Charli XCX, Brooke Candy) written and recorded in Los Angeles. ‘Odd One Out’ follows from GIRLI’s Hot Mess EP and features fan favourites Day Month Second, Hot Mess and Young. The 8-track album marks the new mature alt-pop sound from GIRLI. Drawing inspiration from real life experiences ‘Odd One Out’ explores identity and the difficulties of adolescence.


Speaking on the record GIRLI says “‘Odd One Out’: something or someone in a group that is different or exceptional, that does not fit. All the songs on this album are about feeling different from others. There’s a song about being rejected in love, and how it made me feel like I wasn’t good enough to be loved like everyone else is. There’s a song about being talked down to because of my gender, one about being judged by others because of the way I dress or the way I dance or because of what colour I choose to have my hair. there’s one about how I used to live life vicariously through movies while I waited for life to happen to me. There’s a song about my struggles with mental health, about feeling overwhelmed by social media and how it makes you want to live up to other people’s expectations, about faking it to people because it’s easier than telling them the truth.  there’s a song about how life isn't what I expected it to be and how everyone else seems to be doing fine while I’m confused and freaking out.


She continues “But this isn't a sad album. These are happy songs because they’re part of me learning to love who I am. I’ve always felt like the odd one out, and chances are because you’re reading this, you have too. I hope when you listen to these songs, you hear things you relate to, and that they make you feel like you’re not alone.”


Alongside the new album, GIRLI has also released lead single ‘Deal With It’, set to be one of GIRLI’s biggest to date, the electro-pop bop which embodies self-expression and youth - listen HERE. On the new single GIRLI explains “‘Deal With It’ is about embracing your weirdness and telling anyone who judges or questions your individuality to get over it. It’s about refusing to change who you are for other people and instead of saying that it’s their problem if they’re offended by who you are, not yours.”


After cancelling her 2018 tour due to illness, GIRLI has rescheduled the dates and will be taking her high octane live show on the road this April seeing her perform around the UK including a London show at Islington Academy - full tour dates below with tickets going on sale February 1st.
