Gretel Hänlyn shares new single 'Cry Me A River'

Following on from the release of her stunning comeback single 'War With America' in recent months, Gretel Hänlyn returns once again to deliver a brand new offering.

The new track 'Cry Me A River' marks her second piece of new material since her highly-praised sophomore EP 'Head Of The Love Club', and was produced by frequent collaborator Mura Masa.

Speaking about the new release, she said, “Cry me a river is about when you’ve been happy but suddenly you notice negative feelings creeping back into your life and you’re like ‘oh here we go, hello darkness my old friend’. Meanwhile people ask ‘how are you’ which is like stepping on someone’s iced-over river of emotions and wondering ‘will it crack and show me the truth in the currents underneath the surface or will they just say they’re fine and leave the ice unbroken’. It’s usually best to leave it unbroken, people don’t often want to know exactly how you are, there’s too much to know. Anyway, it happens to everyone, cry me a bloody river. The idea started before my trip to LA and I ended it on my return back to London where depression met me at the Heathrow airport. I was stumped on how to write the chorus but I knew it needed to go somewhere new, somewhere challenging. Alex (Mura Masa, who I often view as the second half of the project) told me to ‘think outside the box’.”
