Katy Kirby - "Party of the Century"

Taken from the forthcoming new album Blue Raspberry, out Jan 26th on ANTI-, Katy Kirby has returned today sharing the delicate new single Party of the Century. With soft percussion, elegant string sections and dainty guitar patterns, the track continues to cement her name as one of the brightest songwriters of our time. Speaking about the track she goes on to say, "I wrote 'Party of the Century' on FaceTime with my friend Christian Lee Hutson, just kinda haphazardly sending lyrics we’d saved in our respective notes,” Kirby said of the song’s creation. “It turned into a sort of slow-danceable, semi-sweet love song about seeking connection when it feels like the chaos is probably never going to stop. It’s kind of also about physics and anti-natalism, and climate change, and also how much we love our friends. When we recorded it, I asked my band to try to make it sound like an Ed Sheeran song, which they refused to do." Take a listen for yourselves below.
