Irish band Picture This release brand new single ‘Song To Myself’. Listen here. After releasing Get On My Love, a feel-good infectious track, last November, the band is now back with a far more personal song. 

With over one million monthly listeners‘Song To Myself is the second release from the band after being away for nearly a year and a half following a stellar performance at last year’s Electric Picnic’s main stage, performing to an audience of over 70,000 punters.

Speaking on the track, singer Ryan Hennessy says: “To be quite frank, ‘Song To Myself’ is a personal letter that I wrote to myself that I never intended on sharing with the world. 

It was in a delicate moment sat on my couch in my living room on June 30th 2021 when the song poured out of me in a matter of minutes.”

“It was as though my subconscious took over and said ‘Ryan you need to verbalise all of these deep emotions that are bubbling under the surface’, and that I did. 

One day in the studio I reluctantly played a voice note of the song and Jimmy told me it was too important a message to keep to myself and it would be a shame not to share it with the world. There was an amazing comfort in that as I believed at the time that I was the only person who had these feelings but it turns out I’m not. 

 ‘Song To Myself’ at its bare bones is a song about trying to navigate being human and I’m so scared to share it with the world but here we are!” 

Emerging from Ireland with a cinematic pop rock style of their own, the band’s 2017 self-tilted full-length debut album kicked off a history-making run. In Ireland, it went triple-platinum, clinched #1 on Ireland’s Overall Chart for four weeks, and topped the Streaming Chart for seven weeks. Since then, Picture This have released albums Mdrn Lv in 2019 and Life in Colour in 2021, both reaching #1 on the Irish charts.
