Lauren Spencer Smith is elated to perform her debut album all over the world including at Sydney's Enmore Theatre with special guest Blake Rose.
“I’m so excited to announce my first ever global tour and to see so many of the incredible fans that have been supporting my music live. I can’t wait to be able to have one massive singalong of all of these new songs and am so thankful I get to share this music with everyone that has supported me on this journey.”
Mirror promises depth, range, and narrative. It will feature 15 deeply moving, personal records that tell a story filled with autobiographical ups and downs. The title is personal and deliberate. She speaks on its meaning in the album trailer.
“When I look in the mirror, I reflect on everything I’ve been through. All of the highs, all of the lows. The real, raw versions of myself.”
Songs from the album have already amassed over 1 billion streams. Released in 2023, "Best Friend Breakup" presents a song that resonates with almost anyone yet fills a creative void, while most recent single "Fantasy" confronts toxic relationships through a collaboration with GAYLE and Em Beihold. Having grown up in a small town without a music community, Smith considers her collaborators the friends she always longed for. The chemistry from their group chats comes alive in the single and video. By the age of 19, Lauren had already created two hits, "Fingers Crossed" and "Flowers." The RIAA-certified platinum singles represent a rare voice in music.
"I always tell people that the only reason I feel obligated to write is because I didn't have this song when I was sad. I feel like writing about it can help somebody else."
Lauren writes and sings from very personal places, but she does so in a way that is relatable to so many. While often sad, these songs include deep reflection, processing, and analysis.
"I don't enjoy writing songs when I'm not over the situation," she offers. "I enjoy going to therapy and talking about it. Once I have both sides, and I can be unbiased about it, I can write the best song."
