About “Merry Christmas Everyone”
On her latest EP, we see Anna co-writing the record with her longtime collaborator David Lindgren Zacharias, with Christmas music something that she and David enjoy writing. The title of her new EP is taken from the first track of the EP “Merry Christmas Everyone”. Upon its release, Anna gave further insight on what the track is about:
Merry Christmas Everyone is a song about figuratively finding home for Christmas. That you get to be where you want to be, with those you want to be with. That you get to breathe out, and that you give a thought to those who weren’t lucky enough to feel that way around Christmas, or maybe ever in life. It’s about counting your blessings, noticing and appreciating themAnna on “Merry Christmas Everyone” (translated)
