Isle of Wight indie-pop singer Lauran Hibberd has announced plans for her second album, which will be released next year.

Girlfriend Material will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally, from March 22 and will feature Lauran’s latest single, Mary. 

2023 has been a busy year for Lauran and her band, as they have toured the world supporting American rockers All Time Low. 

Throughout the summer, Lauran appeared at festivals, including Reading and Leeds, TRNSMT and Belladrum. 

Lauran’s new album will be a follow-up to her debut, Garageband Superstar.

It was released in 2022 and features the likes of Limp Bizkit’s DJ Lethal and Teenage Dirtbag hitmakers, Wheatus. 

On Instagram, of her new album, Lauran said: "It’s the best thing I’ve ever made. Period.

"I’ve had the kitchen sink thrown at me since releasing Garageband Superstar, and making this album was the only thing I knew how to do.

"I cannot wait for you to...hear it.

"I have SO much more coming for u, buckle the hell up."

In January, Lauran will support the American singer Hobo Johnson on his UK tour.
