Self-proclaimed “rockstar stuck in a pop star’s body”, DYLAN,follows two packed out performances at Reading and Leeds Festivals with the news of her new mixtape, The Greatest Thing I’ll Never Learn,due 28 October via Island Records. With the news comes the new single ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’, which premiered exclusively as Clara Amfo’s Future Sounds ‘First Play’ on BBC Radio 1 last night.

 

‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ pairs the 22 year old’s magnetic pop hooks with the soaring, classic rock inspired guitars she was raised on. Serving a much needed dose of realism to a partner, she delivers biting lyrics laced with undeniably infectious energy; adding yet another stadium-worthy anthem to her ever growing discography.

 

“’Nothing Lasts Forever’ is one of my favourite tracks on the mixtape because it’s a perfect representation of who I am as a person – straight to the point, honest and entirely chaotic.” tells Dylan. “It’s the classic Dylan contradiction of emotions between the lyrics and the track. I wanted to write a happy song about how badly I handle my feelings, and the way that people can walk in and out of your life as they please.”

 

Dylan’s first mixtape – and debut release for Island Records – packs a hefty wallop; an eight-track record that doesn’t give you any choice but to sit up, pay attention and sing every word back in your head for days afterwards. Titled ‘The Greatest Thing I’ll Never Learn’, it encapsulates the rising star’s experiences with “learning to love and be loved”. “How does anyone love and be loved?! It’s cringy, but the songs are so un-cringy that it’s very easy to take in without icking myself out. But I feel like I’m writing a soundtrack to my life. This is my movie soundtrack.”

 

That soundtrack is one that is unfailingly frank and thrillingly unbothered by society’s expectations of female artists. Whether she’s reacting to people not wanting to date her on ‘Girl Of Your Dreams’ or searching for answers about herself, as on the ballad ‘Home Is Where The Heart Is’, Dylan is incredibly direct.

 

Her candidness is part of what has already scored her praise from the likes of BBC News, NME, Notion, MTV, Vogue Italia, The Line Of Best Fit, Dork and BBC Introducing; a sold out debut US headline at the iconic Mercury Lounge in New York, UK support slots with Yungblud, Bastille, Ed Sheeran and an EU run with Tate McRae; inspiring an incredibly loyal and passionate fanbase to form around her. 

 

With a sold out UK headline tour, including a night at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the horizon and an ever growing stream of impeccable pop anthems, Dylan looks destined to continue hooking people into her world, rapidly expanding that fanbase in a big way. As it does so, she’s keeping her ambitions fittingly bold. “I want to be respected as a songwriter – for me it really is just about the music,” she explains. “And I want to headline Wembley – that’s everything I’ve had my sights on.”
