Declan McKenna Premieres new Song “Mulholland's Dinner and Wine” on BBC Radio 1
British singer-songwriter Declan McKenna premiered a new song “Mulholland's Dinner and Wine” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the fourth single off of his upcoming third studio album “What Happened to the Beach?”, which is set to be released on February 9, 2024.
The track was written by Declan McKenna, and Gianluca Buccellati who also produced it.
Declan McKenna said of the song, “Mulholland's Dinner and Wine was written with Gianluca Buccellati as a kind of weird, warped story about a cartoon-y criminal duo, and the origins of the title come from an off-licence in the UK, but it became entangled with Mulholland drive in LA. The lyrics came from observations driving around the hills there and conversations at strange, hip parties.”
- The new album comprises a 12-track, produced by Gianluca Buccellati.
Declan McKenna said of the album, “In the past few years there has been a bit of weight behind making music. I wanted to open up and not worry about things so much. I was putting a lot of pressure on myself in the past when I just needed to drop the intensity a bit and have some fun.”
He continued, “If every song features a lyrical statement, then it loses some of its impact, too. I haven't let go of that aspect of myself, but I don't want to live out that style forever. I will always speak my mind with music, but we live in a time where the conversations I wanted to contribute to previously are much more out in the open now.”
He added, “It was the first time I'd been able to open up and unload. It helped me deal with the pressures of making music and mature as a person.”
