Alex Lahey – Congratulations

Alex Lahey

Alex Lahey returns with a new single/video, “Congratulations,” the first taste in a long-awaited new chapter from Lahey, out today via Liberation Records.

“Congratulations” is Lahey putting the focus back into her own project after a lengthy stint of collaborating with other artists as both a songwriter and producer. An examination of old relationships, “Congratulations” captures the all-too-familiar feeling of when your ex (or in Lahey’s cases, exes), move on and settle down. “Two of my exes got engaged within an improbably short space of time of one another. What are the odds? I couldn’t not write a song inspired by it.” The song itself features Lahey’s powerful alto and trademark confessional lyrics, all backed by stadium-ready guitar. The accompanying, “deeply unhinged” video (according to Lahey) was written by Lahey herself and co-directed by Jon Danovic. “It felt like the perfect time to execute a long standing concept I had of making out with myself on camera,” says Lahey. “Now both the song and the video feel like a message about choosing yourself over anyone else.”
