Hannah Slavin releases a new single, ‘Mac & Cheese’.
It follows recent single ‘IDGAFAY’ (you can work that out for yourselves), and, the Scottish singer says, details what living in isolation has been like for her with particular focus on recent mental health challenges following the end of a relationship.
Apart from “eating macaroni cheese”, “watching ‘Friends’ on repeat”, and “not showering for a day or three”, the ode to a “typical day in lockdown” has a more serious message.
“I hope the song resonates with people facing loneliness in this current situation we’re in,” Slavin says. “Some people are finding life more difficult on their own than they care to admit and perhaps they just can’t find a way to talk about it.
“The danger is we end up creating a false perception amongst friends and on social media that we’re doing better than we really are. I hope the song encourages anyone facing these difficulties to take that step and reach out.”
Glasgow-based Slavin – a BBC Music Introducing Scotland ‘One to Watch’ artist – has previously supported Louisa, Mae Muller and Lauran Hibberd, and garnered over 100,000 streams and the approval from Earmilk and Wonderland Magazine.
