Self Esteem has released a brand new festive track, 'All I Want For Christmas Is A Work Email'

Self Esteem has released a brand new festive track, 'All I Want For Christmas Is A Work Email'.

"Hello I am here to ruin your Christmas," she exclaims, talking about the track. "I had the opportunity to record at Abbey Road for a few days and I thought I would use the time wisely. I’ve always been into writing sad Christmas songs as deep stans will know - and that desire has apparently not left me. This was in my head as soon as I had decided to write something ‘Christmassy’. Because Christmas for me is more frustrating and difficult than any other time of year, I feel like it illuminates everything that might not be ok and makes it double not ok. A goal of mine is to one day enjoy it like a normal person, but I wanted to write a song for fellow people who cope with life by working and creating and moving forwards - the enforced stillness of Christmas can be so triggering. Also I referenced The Darkness in the studio which is a first and potentially not the last.”

Self Esteem is set to finish 2020 with three special intimate piano shows. You can check out the dates after the jump below.

December
18 Laylow, London
19 Picture House, Sheffield
20 YES, Manchester
