Metronomy’s Anna Prior Releases Debut Solo Single ‘Thank You For Nothing’

    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!”
