Nashville Artist, Lauryn Peacock Announces Her First Single in Five Years, “Coming Over Me Again”
FOR RELEASE DECEMBER 4, 2020
NASHVILLE (November 18, 2020) – Lauryn Peacock announces her first single in five years, “Coming Over Me Again.” Due out December 4, the single elicits phantom memories that resurrect the carefree spirit of youth. The standalone single’s uplifting beat and soaring melodies reintroduce Peacock as an artist ready to fly as she prepares for the release of her upcoming album in 2021.
Peacock wrote the song during the height of quarantine. She says, “All the time alone left me able to think, to really dig into some great memories. At times, they felt embodied, like I was being visited.” An intentional 90s production style captures the hint of nostalgia with vocals tucked into the music in a way that makes you want to turn the song up and up.
The song was recorded in the space where Alabama Shakes created their breakthrough effort. Peacock enlisted co-producer Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Josephine Foster) and a backing band to include guitarist John James Tourville of The Deslondes, bassist Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather fame, Molly Parden (Andrew Combs, Faye Webster, Liza Anne), and Meg Coleman, known for her other-worldly drum sound.

Praise for Lauryn Peacock

“Up-and-comer but soon to be established Lauryn Peacock released her charming orchestral indie- folk album Euphonia….[which] illustrates just how many different instruments Peacock works with- and works with successfully- throughout all tracks.” – Ear to the Ground
“‘Euphonia’, the new album from singer-songwriter Lauryn Peacock puts her mastery of arrangement and vivid songwriting to the very fore….Often experimental, always timeless, each of the ten tracks is brimming with originality and ideas….It is an album in the truest sense, a beautiful soundtrack to guide you through life’s maddening challenges.” Songwriting Magazine
“The ten-song album is filled with gorgeous orchestral pop. Opening track “All in My Mind” is the perfect single. Filled with soaring strings and playful woodwinds, Peacock’s voice lilts over the lush arrangement….The transition between pathos is seamless as Peacock proves her chops as a songwriter and an arranger.” – Surviving the Golden Age
“Postmodern and pre-modern at once, the orchestral, piano-based ballad “Wounds Grow Grass” by Lauryn Peacock waltzes out of a wine-warmed cabaret from Berlin in the 1920s or maybe from just around the corner here and now.” – KDHX
