“Happy Anniversary, Stranger” Matilda Mann

West London, 20-year-old Matilda Mann found herself soaking up her parent’s musical taste, which led her to writing her first song at age 11. She has been writing ever since, her debut EP If That Makes Sense, inspired by notes taken from conversations with friends, or those overheard during the tube rides and while working in a pub. Today Matilda Mann shares her new single “Happy Anniversary, Stranger” along with a charming animated video. Her forthcoming EP sees her working with Rich Cooper (Billie Martin, Lucy Rose, Mystery Jets), Rob Milton (Easy Life, Holly Humberstone), and Matt Maltese.

Following on from the release of her debut EP If That Makes Sense, “Happy Anniversary, Stranger” is co-written by Matt Maltese and is the third offering from Matilda’s forthcoming EP confirmed for later this year. This track showcases Matilda’s playful side, an uplifting song about fancying someone from a distance and finally getting the courage to speak to them.

Matilda Mann on “Happy Anniversary, Stranger”:

“I used to get the bus to school every day and there would always be this guy I’d see every morning. We never spoke but I always thought it would be such a cute love story – to have a crush on someone from a distance and eventually getting the courage to say hello. The 266 to Hammersmith was the bus I got to school every day, so I’ve always wanted to work it into a song.”

Mann sold out her debut London headline show at Servant’s Jazz Quarters earlier this year as well as previously playing tour support for the likes of Arlo Parks, Beabadoobee and The Staves, while Glastonbury Festival revealed Matilda as third place for their coveted Emerging Talent Competition for 2020.
