Usinger songwriter Lauren Ray returns with her new single ‘Irreplaceable,’ the first single taken from her upcoming second album, ‘Woman InThe Arena’ out on SR Records this May.   

Produced by Julian Emery (Lissie/ Nothing But Thieves) and mixed by Cenzo Townsend (George Ezra, Florence & The Machine) ‘Irreplaceable’ shows a different side to Lauren’s song writing. Experimenting with electronics and beats like never before Lauren has delivered an upbeat, infectious slice of pop. 

Whilst the verses tell the story of a previous relationship, the choruses and overall message is about finding someone who makes you feel completely irreplaceable” says Lauren. “Working closely with Julian on the style of this song was an absolute dream. He really helped capture the mood was looking forFor my second album I was really keen on exploring a more pop production and wanted to push myself both as a writer and performer. Whilst ‘Irreplaceable’, along with all the new songs were still written sitting at my piano, I just knew that I wanted to present them with this completely different energy.” 

Lauren released her debut album, ‘We Will Need Courage’ in 2016, and more recently, her 4-track EP, ‘Inside This Silence’ featuring the single ‘Be AMan’ which had support from BBC Introducing and BBC Regional Radio.  She’s also been very busy writing her new album, and enjoying an extensive touring schedule.
