Last week, Griff finished up her first ever headline tour with a sold out show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire. It came after a year that’s seen the singer release her EP ‘One Foot In Front Of The Other’ as well as pick up the Rising Star award at the 2021 BRITs. She also recently released new single ‘One Night’.
“I have the most creative control so nothing gets released without me feeling 100% happy about it,” Griff told NME earlier this year. “But at the same time you’re attached to a huge machine, so it definitely isn’t at the pace I’d like it to be. I released a lot of music in the last year and sometimes it felt like, ‘am I releasing my best songs and no-one’s listening to them?’”
“With how content is consumed and attention spans are at the moment, you’re always creatively exhausted because you have to release a song every six weeks to keep people’s attention. And even with this seven-song EP, everyone’s now asking when the album campaign starts. I’m like ‘fucking hell’. I haven’t got that many songs in me.”
