‘Astronaut’ was an instant fan-favourite when previewed on the road this autumn. “I wrote ‘Astronaut’ about the idea of being left behind,” comments Griff. “In young relationships, when someone needs time to figure out and find themselves without you, it hurts because you’re left wondering what about yourself wasn’t enough for them.”
When invited to open for Coldplay on two legs of their European tours in 2022 and 2023, Chris Martin asked Griff to play him what she was working on. “He really got stuck in,” she says, laughing. “We listened to maybe 30 of my songs together, but he kept stopping ‘Astronaut’. Chris advised me to strip it all back and keep things simple, so I had the cheek to ask him to play on it himself and I am so honoured he agreed.”
Griff has also been invited to tour with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa and Florence + the Machine.
She recently announced further US, UK and European headline dates next year 2024, including an intimate London show at The Roundhouse.
