Wyldest unveils gentle festive song "Another Christmas"

17 December 2020, 10:51 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Wyldest, the project of London singer/songwriter and producer Zoe Mead has returned with a gentle festive outing titled "Another Christmas".

"Another Christmas" follows Mead's Birdwatcher film track "Seastroke" that arrived in August.

Mead wrote and recorded the new song from her bedroom in Stoke Newington, London, and all digital proceeds from the song will be donated to Crisis.

Discussing the new song, Mead says, ""Another Christmas" is about not taking things for granted in light of a global pandemic."

Mead continues, "It dawned on me a week or so ago that this was likely to be the first Christmas I have spent away from my family. I was lying awake at night in bed feeling sorry for myself and feeling all sentimental (I usually moan about having to go back to my hometown at Christmas). It got me thinking about how careless and absent-minded I have been in the past. I wanted to write this song in an effort to remind myself how lucky I am to have people around who care and how, even though I may not see them on the 25th December, I need to make more of an effort to see them every other day of the year when I can."

"Christmas is one of those seasons we all get a bit swept up in, perhaps sometimes for the wrong reasons," Mead adds. "This year though, can stand as a reminder that the balance of everything is fragile and we need to seize the moment when we can, not just on this one day of the year. I wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas. If we can't safely see our friends and families, we can do so another day, and that day will be just as special."

Back in March Mead released Wyldest's Redream Chaos album.

Wyldest's "Another Christmas" song is out now. Wyldest will support Lanterns On The Lake at London's EartH on 8 October 2021. Find out more.
