The new single is the third to be released from forthcoming Ghost Twin album Love Songs for End Times.
About the single, band singer Karen Asmundson writes, “While this track was written pre-pandemic, and reflected our feelings about how world events were progressing, it feels especially timely right now. Blue Sunshine is a love song for the planet earth from the point of view of the human race as it’s repentant abuser. It’s a nihilist pop anthem for a world on fire. The perspective of the lyrics is essentially, “well we’ve destroyed everything to the point of no return, I guess let’s just try to make the best of our current reality instead of wallowing in regret.” It feels on the surface like an upbeat and cheerful song, but it is actually one of the darkest songs we’ve ever written.”
