Lizzy McAlpine “ceilings” video OUT NOW entering Irish Charts at #5

Breakout artist Lizzy McAlpine unveils a video for her hit song “ceilings” directed by frequent collaborator Gus Black (Phoebe Bridgers, Sheryl Crow)..

Of the video, Lizzy states, “the ‘ceilings’ music video represents the seconds after meeting someone you like, where you begin to picture a relationship with them.

Ultimately, you realise that it doesn’t actually exist and it was just your imagination. I think we all do that, it’s human nature and that’s really what the song is about too.”

“ceilings” is from her second studio album, five seconds flat, released last April on Harbour Artists & Music /AWAL Recordings. “ceilings” continues to see week over week growth with nearly 60 million streams and counting.

The track is featured as one of Apple Music 1’s “23 For ’23,” where Lizzy is spotlighted as a new artist to watch in 2023 by host Zane Lowe, while the official “ceilings” audio on Tik Tok has nearly 185M views across 40K unique videos.

Produced by Philip Etherington and Ehren Ebbage, the 14-track album includes contributions from Grammy Award winners FINNEAS and Jacob Collier, as well as Ben Kessler and Laura Elliott. five seconds flat garnered extensive Best of 2022 year-end coverage from Bob Boilen’s Favorite Music of 2022 (five seconds flat and “reckless driving”), Consequence’s Top 50 Songs of 2022 (“all my ghosts”) and INSIDER’s Best Albums of 2022 & Best Songs of 2022 (“ceilings”).

Additionally, Lizzy has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Ellen Show and NPR’s Tiny Desk where the performance was voted Top 5 of 2022 Tiny Desks.

Most recently, she co-wrote and performed “Hold On,” the theme song for the new Apple Original series “Dear Edward.” The track is co-written with Oscar-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“La La Land,” “The Greatest Showman”). 

Born outside Philadelphia, Lizzy originally gained recognition when she began to share original songs and covers on Soundcloud and YouTube.

In 2020, McAlpine released her debut album, Give Me A Minute, chronicling the beginning and end of a romantic relationship. With more than 430 million streams to date on DSPs, McAlpine has gained notable supporters on social media including Phoebe Bridgers, FINNEAS, Rostam, Clairo, Yebba, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Lennon Stella, Ben Platt and more.
