Global Pop Sensation Griff To Release Debut Album ‘Vertigo’ In July 2024

Global pop sensation Griff has announced her debut album vertigo, arriving July 19th via Warner Records. Featuring anthemic new single “Miss Me Too,” the full tracklist was unveiled by Griff in a huge, spray-painted dress designed by Central Saint Martins graduate Eden Tan.

Griff has also confirmed a global headline tour, with the North American leg kicking off on September 13 in Washington, DC and running through October 10 in Phoenix, AZ. Pre-sale tickets are available now for those who pre-order the album, with general sale beginning on Friday, May 3.

Before Griff’s debut album had a name, or its titular first single, it had a feeling: vertigo. That pit-of-your-stomach, up-is-down sense that the world is spinning faster than you can keep up with, and your own place in it has never felt less secure. The album is a journey of self-discovery that Griff has shared over three volumes in real-time, weaving songs that resonate with the vertigo arc into work that moves through melancholy and heartache into healing and joy. vertigo witnesses Griff scaling new creative heights without compromising the hand-stitched, home-made magic that first marked her out as British Pop’s most modern, exciting voice.
“The album is about vertigo as an emotion and the dizziness and upside down feeling of heartache,” Griff shares. “I wanted to drop this project in parts from insular low feelings (Vol.1) to desperate euphoria (Vol.2) and with volume three, the full story.”

With a 360-approach on everything from production, fashion and design, to the spiral motif long connecting vertigo in plain sight – right down to her signature hairstyle – Griff’s debut album turns the tumultuousness of young adulthood into a source of power. Latest single “Miss Me Too” is a euphoric, existential banger about the little-discussed irony of losing confidence as you supposedly grow older and wiser, and was accompanied by a beautifully choreographed video physically exercising such emotions. Throughout the record, the BRITs Rising Star winner draws on her sideways origin-story, from her unorthodox Chinese-Jamaican outsider-status growing up to launching an international music career from the confines of her bedroom. That tenacious, no-nonsense talent always wise beyond her years also sounds like she is living: free of expectation, and moving through a world in which there is no one way to make your debut album or to be yourself.
