That's not all: Lauran's also shared another taste of her forthcoming record, this time in the form of 'Step Mum'. Speaking of the track, she has said: "If you’ve been lucky enough to have not had one for yourself, you’ve probably already met her in a movie. I just realised there were not enough songs in the world about step mums, I had a big desire to change that. This song is as equally funny to me as it is scary for my dad. For legal reasons, this is not about my own stepmother."
