Zuzu Shares New Song “My Old Life”
- Liverpool based alt-pop singer-songwriter Zuzu announced that will release her new single “The Van Is Evil” from her upcoming debut album “Queensway Tunnel” on September 3, 2021.
Back in July 30, she dropped a new song “My Old Life” along with a music video ahead of “The Van Is Evil”
The song received its first play during BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Tom Grennan.
“This last 18 months have brought about some of the biggest changes in my life. I've had to learn how to set boundaries. Learn how to walk away from people and how to let people walk away from me,” Zuzu said of the song. “This song is about a particular period I had to dig really deep to find enough self-worth to move on from an emotionally exhausting situation that — at the time — felt like the end of the world. It's about pushing through those dark times and coming out stronger and wiser. Writing 'My Old Life' really helped me to shake off all of the toxic energy I was holding onto and truly let go.”
The video was directed by Nina Crighton. She said, “This video was heavily inspired by one of my favourite artists, Tracey Emin. I first saw 'My Bed' in the Tate art gallery in Liverpool and was blown away by how moving it was. I never looked at my own bed the same way after seeing it. When it came to making the video for my old life I kept thinking about how perfectly it sums up being in a terrible place.”
The debut album is set to be released on November 12, 2021.
