ZUZU Announces Debut Album Queensway Tunnel and Shares New Single “My Old Life”




Queensway Tunnel is out November 12th via Planet Z Records


Zuzu is today announcing her debut album Queensway Tunnel for release on November 12th. She is also sharing a brand-new single, “My Old Life”, a soaring and stirring encapsulation of the pain that lies in feeling that life has been split into two very distinct segments: before and after. More than that, it is a song about absorbing that pain, and using it to look forward to something better. Zuzu explains:

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.”

More about Zuzu

Liverpool’s acclaimed singer-songwriter – and noted sci-fi obsessive, gamer, and comic book enthusiast – returns with her first full release since blazing a trail with 2020’s major label EP release How It Feels. With that EP being released just as the UK entered its first lockdown, the skies in Zuzu’s universe could have started to look a little darker. However, the stars look to be aligning once more, after what many might see as having been a productive 12 months. As she emerges from her home studio in Liverpool, she has been writing music for Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time: Distant Lands”, contributed a re-working of her song “How It Feels” to The Sims video game (sung in the The Sims’ own language, “Simlish”), and in May became the first artist in the northern hemisphere to play a non-socially-distanced live show, as she performed in front of 5000 fans in support of Blossoms.
