Metronomy drummer Anna Prior has shared her first solo single, ‘Thank You For Nothing’. It marks the debut release on the musician and DJ’s newly-launched record label, Beat Palace. Check it out below.
“The initial demo of this song was called ‘Housey_4’ – as I had absolutely 100% intended to write some house music…!” Prior explained in a press release. “But during lockdown, Joe Mount from Metronomy set me a task to create a cover of a Buena Vista Social Club song for an episode of Metronomy TV. I was addicted to reggaeton beats at the time and just wanted to make the most reggaeton drum loops I could. The drum intro to ‘Thank You For Nothing’ is one of those reggaeton experiments.”
She added: “After months of being trapped inside my apartment, I wanted to write music that was as summery as it was uplifting. I needed an escape and with the world engulfed in panic and uncertainty I created a summer holiday in my head, sat on a beach with a litre of sangria!”
