Lauv Announces His New Album, ‘All For Nothing,’ And Shares A Nostalgic New Single, ‘Kids Are Born Stars’

Lauv is set to return with his sophomore album, All 4 Nothing, this summer. On his second effort, Lauv plans to dive into deeper elements of storytelling, consisting of themes of nostalgia, conflict, and self-empowerment.

“My album All 4 Nothing curates an energy of openness, wonder, and excitement, but also vulnerability and realness,” Lauv said in a statement. “I hope it opens up a vortex to something you haven’t felt in a while — a place where you can build yourself up from.”

Ahead of the album, Lauv has premiered a new single called “Kids Are Born Stars.” In the song’s accompanying music video, directed by Hannah Lux Davis, Lauv is seen spending time with a younger version of himself. Before filming the video, Lauv said he spent a lot of time trying to channel his inner child.

“When I started making this album, I was doing a lot of inner child meditation work and this song was me getting back in touch with my 8th grade self and giving him a little dose of confidence because Lord knows he would’ve needed it back then,” Lauv said. “As an adult, I had lost touch with my sense of confidence too and making this song and the whole album helped me get back in touch with the person I really am.”

Beginning in August, Lauv will embark on a North American headlining tour with Hayley Kiyoko opening on all dates.
