Pixie Geldof has released two solo singles and people are pleasantly surprised


Pixie Geldof has followed in her dad Bob's footsteps to launch a musical career after dropping two solo singles.

The 25-year-old has debuted two tracks from her first solo album I'm Yours, due September 16, and they were met with surprisingly positive comments considering the internet's usual response to celebrity offspring career choices.

Responses ranged from begrudging acceptance to rows of heart emojis.

So Strong and Escape Route had her quickly compared to singers Lana Del Rey and Halsey.

It helped that she had the backing of famous friends like Alexa Chung and Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw.

The two singles will be released as a double A-side on June 17.

Pixie said in a statement: "I'm Yours represents every single human I've ever loved in my life.

"Songs of love in every form, platonically, family, in romance. I'm a part of these people's lives and I'm theirs in any capacity they need me."

It's not actually Pixie's first attempt to break into music after releasing a single four years ago with her band Violet, but this is her first solo attempt.
