  • Romy Premieres New Song “Enjoy Your Life” on BBC Radio 1

  • London-based singer-songwriter and The xx member, Romy Madley Croft, aka Romy premiered a new song “Enjoy Your Life” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.

    The track was written by Beverley Glenn-Copeland, Fred Gibson, Jamie Smith, Oby Onyioha, Romy Madley Croft, and Stuart Price.
    Produced by Stuart Price, Fred again.., Jamie xx, and Romy. The accompanying music video was directed by Vic Lentaigne,
    Romy told Clara Amfo about the song, “I wanted to mention it because I think this song is kind of continuing continued from that in the fact that when you when you lose someone, when you have those moments, you think that phrase 'life is short', but then you're sort of putting things into perspective a bit and then I mean I'm not always that good at being like positive all the time and stuff. But I think that the line 'my mother says to be enjoy your life', which I can't claim.”
  • The song samples American singer-songwriter Beverly Glenn-Copeland's “La Vita”.
    She continued, “It is a sample by an artist called Beverly Glenn-Copeland. And when I heard that lyric, I just floored me and it was just like a nice reminder like, life is short by making the most of it. And so I'm not playing. I'm not here going everyone enjoy life, no matter what you're doing. It's just that a nice reminder that sort of like, when things are bad, sometimes you can sort of get through.”

  • Romy shared on social media, “When I heard the line, 'My mother says to me enjoy your life' by Beverly Glenn-Copeland, I was speechless. Those few words felt like the most simple and disarming sentence. Ever since I was 11, I've been aware of and drawn to the phrase, life is short. I've felt inspired by people who I've seen react to this by trying to see the positives in life, even when things are going wrong and times are hard. As much as I'd love to naturally be one of those people, I'm not always able to do this myself and often get in my own head and my own way, so sometimes a reminder goes a long way. Glenn's lyrics were a direct connection to what had been a very quiet private thought. It resonated especially deeply as it is because of my mum passing away when I was 11, that this perspective on living life was even a part of me. I hope this song celebrates and shares the words that Glenn said so beautifully and my reaction to it and hopefully uplifts a dance floor along the way. I hope you know I would never want to tell anyone how to feel or to pretend to feel good when they don't, I know how that feels. I want to thank Glenn with all of my heart for allowing me to sample this song. Please go and listen to the original song 'La Vita' from his album Primal Prayer. The song also contains a sample from Oby Onyioha's incredible song “Enjoy your life”, which Jamie brought into the mix. All my love and thanks to an amazing team Fred, Jamie and Stuart Price for all of your brilliant ideas and for sticking with me on the journey of this song.”
