Composer Danny Elfman has released his first solo work for 36 years, new single ‘Happy’. “I originally wrote ‘Happy’ to perform at Coachella 2020”, he explains. “It was written to be an absurd anti-pop song, designed to begin as a very simple pop tune that degrades into something more subversive. The cynical nature of the lyrics echo how I feel about living in a semi-dystopian world turned upside down”.
