With her eagerly-awaited new album set to arrive in the coming months, La Roux has now dropped the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Gullible Fool' follows on from the previously shared lead track 'International Woman Of Leisure' in previewing her first full-length in six years 'Supervision', which is set to be released on the 7th February via her own Supercolour Records.
Speaking about her new offering, she said, "'Gullible Fool' is the most special and meaningful song on the record for me, because I feel like it encapsulates a cycle of a life, and that couldn’t have happened if I wasn’t in the process of writing something else. It describes the feeling of being overly trusting, and living under the assumption that you shouldn’t need to protect yourself if you are nice to people. I think there comes a day in everyone’s life where you realise that it’s not that people aren’t to be trusted, but more that firm boundaries are necessary. And sometimes that can carry a sadness. 'Gullible Fool' covers several times in my life when I’ve been bullied and it’s taken me totally by surprise, and then moves into the build of the inner fortress to a place of safety and joy."
