Metronomy’s Anna Prior shares debut solo single 'Thank You For Nothing'

Having made her mark as the drummer for Metronomy over the last decade, Anna Prior is now looking to make her own impact with her debut solo single.

The new track 'Thank You For Nothing' marks her first piece of solo material as a solo artist, and has been released through her own newly-formed label Beat Palace'.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, "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.

"After months of being trapped inside my apartment, I wanted to write music that was as summery as it was uplifting. 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!”
