Anna of the North is gearing up to release a new album, and she's just shared her new single "Here's to Another."
The new track arrived Friday alongside an accompanying video, which is straight out of a fairytale. At first, the singer is seen walking out of a party in tears after having her heart broken. She falls asleep in the woods, but is awakened by a strange, furry creature, who takes her on a journey through various doors.
The song is perhaps an unintentional ode to the last year, as Anna reflects on the past but then makes sure to let it go just as quickly. It's a preview of her upcoming album, which is expected to arrive this fall.
"'Here's to Another' is one of my favorite songs that I've ever written," says Anna. "It's very honest and the story of my life. It wasn’t intentional, but I think a lot of people can connect with the lyrics at the moment as we just put quite a strange and challenging year behind us. I can't believe a whole year has passed living in these absurd pandemic times. I’ve probably worn the same 5 outfits for a year now, I don’t shower everyday anymore, I can’t remember last time I put on make up... And the worst thing is is that I don’t really mind it all. So I’ve probably gone mad."
