“Not the Drinking” is off Lauren’s debut album Wasted in Jackson, out now on Universal Republic. Produced by Eg White in his West London studio, the album’s highlights include the raspy, R&B-meets-gospel swagger of “Not The Drinking” and “When The Night Kills The Day,” a haunting, bluesy shuffle featuring the eerie sound of an ancient Steinway piano belonging to Ed Harcourt (who co-wrote the song) and the elegant playing of hip, young folk-slingers Mumford And Sons, whose frontman Marcus Mumford produced the song.
