Sally Shapiro Release New Song ‘Christmas Escape’

    Sally Shapiro have released a new single, ‘Christmas Escape’, the latest offering from their upcoming LP Sad Cities. Give it a listen below.

    “‘Chrismas Escape’ is a song about escaping from the Christmas stress,” Johan Agebjörn, one half of Sally Shapiro, said in a press release. “Christmas is lovely but the period before it can be quite stressful, so we had this image of just escaping from everything, flying North with snowflakes in the eyes. We wrote it last December together with André Csernak, a Swedish musician that we’ve been writing a few songs together with on the new album. The original version had beats, but then we developed it together with Johnny Jewel into a more ambient soundscape song.”

    Sad Cities, the follow-up to 2013’s Somewhere Else, is set for release on February 18 via Italians Do It Better. It includes the previously released singles ‘Fading Away’ and ‘Forget About You’.
