OUT 20TH AUGUST 2021 SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘DO YOU MIND?’
ANNOUNCES 2021 HEADLINE TOUR
Fast-rising Dublin singer-songwriter-producer Orla Gartland today announces details of her long-awaited debut album Woman on the Internet, due for release on 20th August 2021 via her own label New Friends. Featuring the singles ‘More Like You’, ‘Pretending’ and ‘Zombie!’ and today’s new release, the tender piano-led ‘Do You Mind?’, Woman on the Internet is the culmination of years of music making, live shows and Gartland honing her production skills.
Of announcing her debut album, Gartland says “Announcing my debut album feels like a moment I’ve been waiting for for years. Something clicked into place last year – I grew into my role as a producer and lyrically I knew what I wanted to say. Although this album was made in 2020 it isn’t laced with lockdown blues – it feels more like the soundtrack of new time to me; a sunnier time, a more hopeful time. I’m so proud of this record and beyond excited for everyone to hear it!”
In celebration of today’s announcement, Orla Gartland also announces a run of headline tour dates, set to take place across October and December 2021, including a headline date at London’s Electric Ballroom, and a hometown show in Dublin. Pre-ordering Woman on the Internet via orlagartland.com before 4pm on Thursday 10th June will grant access to the tour pre-sale, which opens at 10am on Friday 11th June. Tickets will be available on general sale from 10am on Monday 14th June. A full list of tour dates can be found below

Woman on the Internet will follow Gartland’s ﬁrst two acclaimed EPs, 2019’s Why Am I Like This? and the follow up Freckle Season, which was released in February last year. Between them, Gartland’s songs have amassed over 55 million streams and more than 750,000 monthly Spotify listeners, and seen her compared to artists such as Stevie Nicks, St. Vincent, Regina Spektor and HAIM.
Born and raised in Dublin, Gartland started writing songs when she was 14 years old. Unable to convince any of the 18+ local pubs and venues to let her perform, she honed her craft online, before heading out on tour the day she ﬁnished school. On her return she packed her bags and moved to London, spending the next few years writing, recording, touring and gathering fans apace.
