Let’s Eat Grandma, the duo composed of songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and vocalists Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, have shared their new single Happy New Year, an upbeat, blissful song celebrating friendship, and the opening track from their upcoming much anticipated third full-length album Two Ribbons. Watch the video for Happy New Year below. Co-produced by David Wrench and Let’s Eat Grandma, Two Ribbons will be released on 8 April 2022 via Transgressive - presave and preorder it here.
Rosa Walton said the following about the track:
"Happy New Year is a celebratory song written about my relationship with my best friend. I wrote it 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. 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."
Happy New Year is the third song to be heard from Two Ribbons, following the album’s stunning, melancholic title track and the ethereal, glistening pop song Hall Of Mirrors.
Let’s Eat Grandma’s two special and intimate early 2022 shows at Norwich Arts Centre on 26th January and at XOYO in London on 27th January are now sold out.
