Sleigh bells are in the air and Christmas comes early on Friday the 1st of November as writer and musician Jennifer Juan releases a heartbreak anthem for the holiday season, Christmas Citalopram, through Underground Wonderland Records. Telling the raw but relatable story of relationship breakdowns, mental health struggles and sadness during the festive season, Christmas Citalopram combines dreamy synths and gentle vocals with traditional holiday music staples to deliver a fresh take on the seasonal sound.
Arriving on streaming services and digital stores, including Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play, from the 1st of November, Christmas Citalopram follows the successful release of Juan’s heartbreaking ballad Calais and Dover, which has been streamed tens of thousands of times across streaming services and digital marketplaces, along with the release of the poetry collection, Ol Brown Eyes Is Back, which hit bestseller status on Amazon within one week of release.
Talking about how she turned a sad subject into a mellow dreamscape, Juan said. “I think there is a lot of pressure for things to be perfect at Christmas, the presents, the decorations, even our relationships. Everyone thinks that everybody else is coping so much better than they are, so I wanted to look deeper at that.”
Christmas Citalopram by Jennifer Juan is available from November 1st 2019, on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music and all major digital stores and streaming services.
The maxi single edition of Christmas Citalopram is available exclusively on Bandcamp, featuring two additional tracks, and is currently available for preorder.
