Jorja Smith releases highly anticipated debut album "Lost & Found"

Jorja Smith has released her long-awaited debut album, "Lost & Found".

The album is the rich fruit of the English singer-songwriter's past two years of work, which embodies 12 tracks and arrives two years after her "Project 11" EP.

On her debut offering, her playfully infectious pop spirit intertwines with her youthful charisma, idiosyncratic storytelling, and informed opinions - attributes that have set her apart from her peers and seen her become one of the UK's most-loved female-breakthrough stars of recent years.

A sonic masterclass, "Lost & Found" spans a number of personal, and observational yet relatable topics that only Jorja Smith could unite so compellingly. The album, which she has written across the past 3 years, from the age of 17 - 20, includes previously released singles "Blue Lights", "Teenage Fantasy" and "Where Did I Go?"

With a BRIT Award win, millions of streams and 10 magazine front covers under her belt, all achieved within two years, her rise to stardom has been nothing short of meteoric. 

Bursting onto the scene in 2016 with her critically acclaimed debut single "Blue Lights", Smith was subsequently tipped for success by a plethora of publications including: The Fader, i-D Magazine, Pitchfork, NPR, Vogue and many more. 

In 2017, she went on to support mega-star Bruno Mars on the US-leg of his world tour, collaborated with global lyricist Drake (More Life) and also co-wrote "I Am" - her solo single on the #1 Black Panther soundtrack - with the man himself, Kendrick Lamar.

Kicking-off 2018 as BRITs Critics' Choice winner, she followed with her sensational single, "Let Me Down" - a stunning, frank, and honest track which featured an emotion-filled rap from British MC Stormzy. Shortly after, Smith embarked on her third sold-out 8-date UK tour which concluded with two Shepherds Bush Empire dates, all reviewed to critical acclaim.
