“‘Tongue Tied’ is your smoke-a-joint-on-the-highway, make-out-at-a-red light, life’s-too-short-so-do-what-you-want anthem,” shares Sanderson on today’s release.
“Tongue Tied” comes off the heels of her hard-hitting single “THERAPY!” in January and “Gay 4 Me”, a collaboration with Australian singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer G Flip in February – both songs easily surpassing the million-stream mark almost immediately.
Fans will get a chance to hear these new songs live for the first time this spring on the “Death Of A Fantasy”tour, featuring support from rising artists JORDY and Miki Ratsula. Kicking off April 26th in Seattle, WA, this month-long run will see Lauren taking the stage of iconic rock venues like Irving Plaza, El Rey & 9:30 Club.

Lauren Sanderson turned heads in 2019 opening for FINNEAS & has steadily built a loyal cult following thanks to her no-holds-barred honesty, relentless DIY work ethic and electric persona. MTV, Billboard, Zane Lowe’s Beats 1, Alt Press, NPR, Cosmopolitan & Spotify’s New Music Friday have all signed on in support of her swirling, intoxicating blend of rock, pop, hip-hop and R&B, imbued with the same charisma & conviction that got her a TED Talk at the age of 19.
While her acclaimed 2020 debut full-length, Midwest Kids Can Make It Big, was brimming with wide-eyed wonder, the LA-via-Indiana singer/songwriter is swinging big in 2022.
“I want people to hear these songs, watch these videos and think – I can be that. I can get tattoos, I can embrace my sexuality, I can say what I truly feel and be whoever I want to be,” shares Sanderson.
“I think we all just want to feel connected again & that’s the feeling I want my new music to give fans. To just put in your headphones & reconnect with yourself. Text someone you haven’t talked to in a while and blast it with the windows down together. Because I think we’re all feeling the exact same thing right now – A little anxious, lost & ready to just know who the f^#* we are again. & that’s exactly what we’re gonna do.” Be sure to stay tuned to Lauren Sanderson’s socials for more information soon.
