Lucy Spraggan will release new single Tea and Toast on 16th December.
The track is taken from her Top 10 debut album Join The Club and will feature brand new track It Doesn’t Feel Like Christmas as a B-side. Tea and Toast tells the story of an elderly couple and is a heartbreaking tale that was first performed during The X Factor bootcamp.
Talking about the song Lucy says, “I was busking in town and this elderly couple walked past holding hands. Then the lady collapsed in the street and was unconscious. And the look on the husband’s face was like he’d never lost her before and he’d just lost her then. It was horrible and it inspired me to write a song — after I got them into an ambulance.”
B-side It Doesn’t Feel Like Christmas is a heartwarming festive alternative. Lucy says, “I’ve always wanted to write something Christmassy, so I had a go at it this year. It’s a song about missing loved ones in the festive season and remembering the happy times. It’s kind of bittersweet but I really enjoyed writing it whilst thinking of those I miss at these times.”
Lucy is currently on tour in the UK.
