She said: “A lot of the themes on this album are about getting older, which seems ridiculous given I’m only in my early 30s.

“But I signed my first record contract at 18, which feels like a lifetime ago, and on a personal level I’m at the stage in life where parents are getting on, friends have faced depression to the point of not wanting to be here anymore, and everyone has had ups and downs whatever their background."

'The Human Demands' is produced by Arctic Monkeys producer, Jim Abbiss, and will see the 'This Is The Life' hitmaker "rediscover her indie roots".
