Romy of The xx has shared a new single called “Enjoy Your Life,” a sentimental ode to living optimistically. Listen to the track below.
“Enjoy Your Life” samples Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s song “La Vita.” One evening, when Romy attended a concert by the artist, she was moved by the line “My mother says to me, ‘enjoy your life,’” particularly because her mother passed away when she was 11. With that piece of advice as its centerpiece, Romy’s latest single soundtracks a concerted effort to let go of fear and appreciate all the world has to offer.
Produced by Fred again.., Stuart Price, and Jamie xx, “Enjoy Your Life” comes with a music video directed by Romy’s wife, Vic Lentaigne, that splices old images of the singer’s mother with clips of the artist driving with the windows down, swimming in the ocean, and dancing in the club — living her best life, as her mom would have wanted. Check it out below.
Romy’s latest single follows last year’s “Strong,” which was also produced by Fred again.. Before that, she combined covers of songs by Olive and Corona with “You’re Not Alone in the Rhythm of the Night.”
This weekend, Romy will perform her first of two weekends at Coachella. From there, the artist will head to Europe and Asia for a run of tour dates that extend into August.
