Let's Eat Grandma release new album opener "Happy New Year"

03 January 2022, 14:42 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Let's Eat Grandma have kicked off 2022 with new single "Happy New Year", which opens their forthcoming third album Two Ribbons.

"Happy New Year" is the third song to be lifted from Let's Eat Grandma's upcoming third album, following last year's "Two Ribbons" and "Hall of Mirrors".

Speaking about the song, Rosa Walton said, ""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."

Two Ribbons is co-produced by Let's Eat Grandma and David Wrench, and will follow the duo's 2018 album I'm All Ears.

"Happy New Year" is out now. Let's Eat Grandma's Two Ribbons album will be released 8 April via Transgressive, and is available to pre-order now.
