The Egyptian Songwriter Shares a Smooth & Soulful New Project
Moving to London to pursue her musical goals, Egyptian songwriter Layal has just dropped her latest single ‘For The Love of The Cool’. A groove rich piece of authentic soul, it’s a track that fits perfectly with the jazz & soul sound of South London, with a hint of elements from her Egyptian background.
“This song is my opinion of the past year & my feelings towards it. A lot of crazy things happened last year that’s why in the song I talk about wanting to move to another planet to look for my own utopia there. It also talks about my own personal growth & the rollercoaster of emotions I’ve been through on this soul-searching trip. The lyrics create some vivid colourful visuals as I describe the world in my head that I’m always lost in with clouds made of silk & pools of emotions. The song is also promoting the idea that people should just focus on their own passions & let others be so we can all be happy :)”
A rising star in the London soul & jazz scene – Layal was born in Egypt before emigrating and falling in love with the music scene in the UK. Influenced by a wide range of artists and styles, she aims to incorporate different styles and cultures into her distinctive soulful sound. Keen to never be boxed into one genre, she’s constantly influenced by her surroundings as well as her own cultural background, which reflects in her music.
