Arlo Parks has revealed new single ‘Softly’ alongside a Zhang and Knight directed music video.

Discussing the track, which puts a poppy, upbeat spin on the singer’s signature smooth sound, Arlo commented, “‘Softly’ is a song about yearning, about how fragile you feel in the dying days of a relationship when you’re still desperately in love. The song is about how it feels to brace yourself before the blow of a break up and reminisce about the days where it all felt luminous.”


‘Softy’ follows Arlo Park’s 2021 debut studio album ‘Collapsed in Sunbeams’. Following its release, she received two Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album, took home the BRIT Award for Best New Artist, received the Hyundai Mercury Prize as well as won the BBC Introducing Artist Of The Year Award.

The record went on to reach the Top 3 on the UK Album Charts and won the AIM Awards for Best Independent Album and UK Independent Breakthrough.

Furthermore, Arlo was nominated for Breakthrough International Act at the BET Awards and named an ambassador for British mental health charity CALM.

This year Arlo Parks will join Clairo on tour across North America before ending the run of shows with a performance at Coachella in April. She will also join Harry Styles for his upcoming Dublin show as well as the support line-up for Billie Eilish UK arena tour in June.
