Australian singer-songwriter, Alex the Astronaut, has released the new single ‘Christmas in July’, the latest track from her upcoming debut album, The Theory of Absolutely Nothing.
The track is the sixth single to be taken from the album which is due for release on the 21 August. It follows from ‘Banksia’, a track dedicated to a friend who passed away.
Alex the Astronaut (real name, Alex Lynn) said ‘Christmas in July’ was inspired by a romantic relationship and the elation that came with it.
“I met someone and it felt like Christmas had come and I’d won the lottery at the same time. I feel like she took all the things that I knew and really flipped them on their head which was exactly what I needed,” said Lynn in the press release.
The track also features a festive video which shows Lynn dressed as a gift, making her way to a socially distanced Christmas meal. You can view the video below.
Lynn recently celebrated Pride month with performances on the Smithsonian’s Project Pride and Pride.com’s virtual music festival PRIDE: INSIDE. She performed her 2017 song “Not Worth Hiding” an open letter to her 16-year-old self that details the journey to owning her sexuality.
Alex the Astronaut also joined Courtney Barnett, Alex Lahey and more for the second edition of ISOL-AID.
