Self Esteem has released a brand new festive track, ‘All I Want For Christmas Is A Work Email’.
“Hello I am here to ruin your Christmas,” she exclaims, talking about the track. “I had the opportunity to record at Abbey Road for a few days and I thought I would use the time wisely. I’ve always been into writing sad Christmas songs as deep stans will know – and that desire has apparently not left me. This was in my head as soon as I had decided to write something ‘Christmassy’. Because Christmas for me is more frustrating and difficult than any other time of year, I feel like it illuminates everything that might not be ok and makes it double not ok. A goal of mine is to one day enjoy it like a normal person, but I wanted to write a song for fellow people who cope with life by working and creating and moving forwards – the enforced stillness of Christmas can be so triggering. Also I referenced The Darkness in the studio which is a first and potentially not the last.”
Self Esteem is set to finish 2020 with three special intimate piano shows. You can check out the dates after the jump below.
