Let’s Eat Grandma have shared a new song called ‘Happy New Year’, the latest offering from their upcoming album Two Ribbons. Following ‘Hall of Mirrors’ and the title track, the single comes with an accompanying video featuring Let’s Eat Grandma’s Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth playing a tennis match. Watch and listen below.
“I wrote ‘Happy New Year’ after a breakdown between us that lasted for a long period of time, to communicate to her how important she is to me and how our bond and care for each other goes much deeper than this difficult time,” Walton explained in a statement. “I used the setting of New Year as both an opportunity for reflection, looking back nostalgically through childhood memories that we shared, and to represent the beginning of a fresh chapter for us. I’d been struggling to come to terms with the fact that our relationship had changed, but as the song and time progresses I come to accept that it couldn’t stay the way it was when we were kids forever, and start to view it as a positive thing — because now we have been able to grow into our own individual selves.”
Two Ribbons, which will follow Let’s Eat Grandma’s 2018 LP I’m All Ears, arrives on April 8 via Transgressive.
