New song from Danny Elfman

Composer Danny Elfman, known for his collaborations with Tim Burton, including The Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride, as well as playing in Oingo Boingo, has released a new single called "Happy" -- his first solo release in 36 years.

"I originally wrote 'Happy' to perform at Coachella 2020. It was written to be an absurd anti-pop song, designed to begin as a very simple pop tune that degrades into something more subversive. The cynical nature of the lyrics echo how I feel about living in a semi-dystopian world turned upside down," Elfman explains.

Check the video below.

Rounding out the lineup on "Happy" is Elfman on vocals, guitars and synth, plus drums by Josh Freese (The Vandals, Nine Inch Nails), guitar by Nili Brosh (Dethklok), bass by Stu Brooks (Dub Trio), and additional synth design by Randall Dunn.
