Today’s song is “Happy Loner” by Marina. The Welsh singer/songwriter offers a heart-wrenching track with emotive lyrics. This song makes a big impact with just the combination of vocals and piano melodies.
The song was initially released in December 2020 and is now being featured on the deluxe edition of Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land. This new album dropped today via Atlantic Records and features two of Marina’s home writing demos along with the tracks “Pink Convertible” and “Free Woman.”
Written in January 2020 as a reflection of how Marina was feeling she stated on Twitter in December 2020 that she no longer felt that way. She said, “The weird thing is.. I wrote “happy loner” in Jan 2020. And now I can’t relate to it anymore 😂 but that’s the great thing about music. It can have a transformative quality. I’ve changed my life many times just by writing or listening to a song and acknowledging a problem.”
Music has a great way of helping you through tough times. This track is definitely one that can make an impact on listeners.
