Vera Ellen Shares New Single 'It's Your Birthday'

Vera Ellen's hotly anticipated solo album It's Your Birthday is out this coming Friday on the legendary Flying Nun Records, and today the L.A.-based songwriter treats us to the title track. Following in the impressive footsteps of singles 'YOU!', 'Crack The Whip' and 'I Want 2 B Boy', the new drop is the last amuse bouche before we get the main course. 'It's Your Birthday' is an ode to misbehaving under the guise of celebrating someone else, with lyrics "It's your birthday you do you, I guess I have no excuse" delivered alongside wholesome and harmonious 'do do doo's from the Vera Ellen band. Ellen continues to leave my jaw dropped with her delicate balance between the bleak and the beautiful, and does so again on 'It's Your Birthday' by singing about both disappointed parents and the pleasure of drinking wine on the beach. It's not my birthday, but this track (and the weather) sure makes me want to drink like it is...

When Vera Ellen says 'It's Your Birthday' it's time to watch the video for Girl Friday's 'Public Bodies' and celebrate Gussie Larkin (Mermaidens, Earth Tongue) who directed it and whose birthday it is today! Happy birthday Gussie!

Vera Ellen's solo album ‘It’s Your Birthday’ is out October 8th via Flying Nun Records.
