If a recent breakup has you feeling a little blue this holiday season, look no further than Ricky Retro‘s new track “Happy New Year” to have you giving zero f*cks in no time. The infamously out-there producer teamed up with Will Simms under his brand Love Harder for the track’s soulful and irreverent vocals, which float over Retro‘s bouncy basslines, driving kickdrums and groovy melodies. Erring on the softer side of his music, “Happy New Year” is really a breakup track about wishing the other person well while doing your very best to forget all about them, and that’s something we can all get on board with. The new release follows Retro‘s “Freak On Me,” ft. Icona Pop, and a stream of independent singles that have had fans and tastemakers in the industry buzzing. “Happy New Year” is also Ricky‘s Ultra debut, welcoming him to a roster of some of the scene’s most talented artists.
“Since it takes the earth 365 days to revolve around the Sun it’s only fair we celebrate it with a song. I always wanted to make a birthday or holiday song and this was the perfect time to do it, and the perfect match up with Ricky Retro. Get ready to flush out 2019 to make room for the new 20’s.” – Love Harder
