Liverpool’s Zuzu has today shared her new single ‘My Old Life’, along with details of her upcoming debut album “Queensway Tunnel”, which is set for release on 12th November on Planet Z Records. The album captures Zuzu’s take on everything from mental health to sci-fi. She has also been making music for Adventure Time: Distant Lands on Cartoon Network and re-working songs for The Sims.

‘My Old Life’ shows Zuzu as one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters. The song begins with a simple yet gutsy acoustic guitar before launching in with cinematic strings for the grand finale. She spoke about what the song means to her:

“This last 18 months have brought about some of the biggest changes in my life. I’ve had to learn how to set boundaries. Learn how to walk away from people and how to let people walk away from me. This song is about a particular period I had to dig really deep to find enough self-worth to move on from an emotionally exhausting situation that – at the time – felt like the end of the world. It’s about pushing through those dark times and coming out stronger and wiser. Writing ‘My Old Life’ really helped me to shake off all of the toxic energy I was holding onto and truly let go.”

The first record from the Liverpool artist is set to arrive on November 12th, and comes after she joined the likes of Blossoms and The Lathums in playing one of England’s first gigs after lockdown earlier this year.

According to an official release, it sees her tackling issues of “change, addiction, sci-fi, escapism, identity, community, and the protection of mental health”.
