Anna Prior Metronomy musician and DJ shares debut solo single 'Thank You For Nothing'

MUMBAI: Anna Prior, DJ and Metronomy musician, is excited to share her debut solo single. 'Thank You For Nothing' launches today and is the debut release on Anna's own freshly-minted record label, Beat Palace.

"The initial demo of this song was called "Housey_4" - as I had absolutely 100% intended to write some house music...! But during lockdown, Joe Mount from Metronomy set me a task to create a cover of a Buena Vista Social Club song for an episode of Metronomy TV. "I was addicted to reggaeton beats at the time and just wanted to make the most reggaeton drum loops I could. The drum intro to 'Thank You For Nothing' is one of those reggaeton experiments" - Anna Prior on 'Thank You For Nothing'.

"After months of being trapped inside my apartment, I wanted to write music that was as summery as it was uplifting," continues Anna. "I needed an escape and with the world engulfed in panic and uncertainty I created a summer holiday in my head, sat on a beach with a litre of sangria!”

However, the lyrics are not without drama as Anna alludes to the disappointment of unrequited love: knowing she had given everything she could, she finds empowerment and strength by walking away from a one-sided love affair.
