Plain White T’s Release New SIngle “Happy”
Building on the success of their earlier release, “Spaghetti Tattoo,” Plain White T’s are back with another exciting new single “Happy”.
Plain White T’s latest single, “Happy,” is a chill and uplifting track that exudes positivity. Lyrically, the song offers an optimistic outlook on navigating difficult times and looking forward to a brighter future. Despite the slightly melancholic melodies and chords, frontman Tom Higgenson passionately declares, “I wanna be happy, happy, happy / What’s the point of being sad? / I wanna feel good.” It’s an infectious anthem that will have you dancing like nobody’s watching.
Reflecting on the new single, Higgenson shares, “The thing I love about ‘Happy’ is that the lyrics are so optimistic and fun, but the chords and the melodies are so melancholy. It’s like, ‘Ok, I know I’m going through something right now, but I just wanna get over it already and feel good again!’ Like I know things are gonna get better, but I’m not quite there yet.” The juxtaposition between the upbeat message and the bittersweet musical arrangement adds depth and complexity to the song, showcasing the band’s ability to craft emotionally resonant music.
