Lauran Hibberd announces debut album with DJ Lethal collaboration "Still Running (5k)"

29 March 2022, 10:51 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Lauran Hibberd has returned with news of her debut album Garageband Superstar, and has unveiled the lead single "Still Running (5k)" which features Limp Bizkit's DJ Lethal.

"Still Running (5k)" is Hibberd's first new material of 2022, following October's "Charlie's Car", and sees her unite with Limp Bizkit's DJ Lethal.

"If 'Comparison is the Thief of Joy' I obviously don’t want myself to be happy”, Hibberd explains. ""Still Running (5k)"explores my self-destructive ideals. In a world where everyone’s life looks better online, and everyone’s thighs don’t touch except in real life, it explains what it feels like to start believing what you read. It’s dangerous to compare yourlife to others, and it’s somewhat humorous that this is what we let ourselves become. Being the first track off my debut album, with newer hip hop influences, but the same humour-coated stomach aches, I have managed to successfully write a song all about running on the premise that it has absolutely nothing to do with running."

The new track will feature on Hibberd's debut album Garageband Superstar, which, Hibberd reveals, is named after "the first track I wrote for this album."

Hibberd adds, "It made sense to me to call it this because I sometimes do feel like I’m famous when I’m in my bedroom andwriting songs on garageband. Also I’m very aware that as soon as I leave that space, I’m just like everyone else. And I’m ok with that."

"Still Running (5k)" is out now. Lauran Hibberd's debut album Garageband Superstar will arrive 19 August via Virgin Music, and is available to pre-order now. She'll play London's O2 Academy Brixton on 30 April with The Snuts.
