Lauv says of the playlist, "I met you when I was 18. is a collection of songs, a story. About moving to New York City when I was 18 and falling in love for the first time. A story about trying to figure out your own identity whilst being deeply intertwined with someone else's. It's a story that, since I released my first song "The Other" in 2015, has been told a bit out of order. In pieces, in fragments & in moments reminisced, but now here it is, in it's entirety: I met you when I was 18. not an album, but a body of work nonetheless. I hope you enjoy."
Recently, it was announced that Lauv will open for Ed Sheeran on his US stadium dates this fall, in conjunction with his headlining Fall 2018 world tour kicking off in September with indie-pop songstress Charlotte Lawrence set to open. The headlining run is set to kick off in Hamburg, Germany on September 15th and will see him performing in cities across North America, England, and Europe. Please see full routing information below.
Lauv's single, "Chasing Fire," out now, serves as the follow up single to his global smash hit song "I Like Me Better" which has surpassed 500 million streams, garnered platinum certifications in 7 countries, gold certifications in 3, and scanned platinum in the U.S. and is currently on the Top 40 radio chart. He has also released an acoustic version of "Chasing Fire," along with a video filmed at legendary Abbey Road Studios. Click HERE to view.
