Aberdeen based quartet Cold Years have just released a new single called ‘Life With A View’, which comes from their forthcoming debut album, ‘Paradise’.
Frontman Ross Gordon had this to say of the song and its message.
“I wrote this song when I was in a really bad place, and it essentially is a piece of advice. “Don’t spend time with people, in places you don’t want to be, doing things you don’t want to do.” I wasted far too many years accepting misery as a reality and this song was a bit of a ‘fuck you’ to that. It was an important lesson for me and it really taught me to value every second of life and to be thankful just even to be alive. I cut a lot of negativity out of my life, and maybe, yeah, I’ll admit there’s still a bit to work on, it’s a journey and this song is my guidebook on how to get through it.”

The band’s debut album, ‘Paradise’, is set for release September 4th 2020 via eOne.
