Orla Gartland Releases New Song “Zombie!”
- Irish singer-songwriter Orla Gartland unveiled a new song “Zombie!” from her upcoming as-yet-untitled debut album on April 13, 2021.
The song is the third single off of the album, following “More Like You” and “Pretending”. It was written by Pete Robertson and Orla Gartland. Produced by Orla Gartland, Pete Robertson and Tom Stafford.
Orla Gartland said of the song on a statement, “'Zombie!' is about repressing emotions until one day they burst out of you all at once. Specifically it's about a very common, very male kind of repression I witnessed in a boy I loved once - I could see that he felt things but there was a barrier stopping him from expressing them. I hated that for him, it made me so angry at the societal pressures that led him to that place. For me living 'like a zombie' became a metaphor for this way of living; someone so seemingly unemotional on the surface they barely seem alive. I scream my head off in the outro of the song and that scream is meant to feel like a huge release, like the moment you let it all out.”
The debut album is expected to be released later this year.
