Watch Let’s Eat Grandma’s Video for New Song “Happy New Year”
Let’s Eat Grandma have shared a video for their new song “Happy New Year.” It’s the latest single from their forthcoming third LP Two Ribbons, following “Hall of Mirrors” and the title track. Check out the video, featuring Let’s Eat Grandma’s Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth battling in a tennis match that turns festive, below.
In a statement, Walton said of the video:
I wrote “Happy New Year” after a breakdown between [Jenny Hollingworth and me] 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.
Let’s Eat Grandma released their second album, I’m All Ears, in the summer of 2018. Their debut, I, Gemini, came out in 2016.
