Orla Gartland released her debut album during the summer.

Woman On The Internet arrived after a run of single releases from Orla Gartland which included Pretending and Zombie!, and which more recently took in You’re Not Special Babe.

“I wrote and produced this song with my friend and collaborator Tom Stafford at the beginning of 2020,” she said of that one. “Lyrically it set a tone for the rest of the album tracks to follow; no bullshit – just a messy scrapbook of honest, matter-of-fact thoughts.”

“We demoed the song together in Tom’s London studio and then later brought it to Middle Farm Studios in Devon where we set up for 3 weeks – my band playing on this track took it to the next level and gave it the raucous energy it was missing.”

“Sonically You’re Not Special Babe has everything I love – ethereal synths, shimmery guitars, harmonies, tiny drums and big drums. I cannot wait to play this song live.”
