Platinum-selling alternative artist grandson has returned with his new single Eulogy via Fueled By Ramen. Available today on all streaming platforms, Eulogy notably marks grandson’s first new music since 2021.
Speaking about the new song, grandson elaborated, “Eulogy was written in the aftermath of a bad mushrooms trip this summer, which led me to scrapping my album and admitting to myself and others that I was struggling with fantasies of self harm. It’s easy to feel nihilistic or cynical about the future, and there’s a strange comfort in indulging in the depressing absurdity of day to day life with the only people in the world that understand you.”
On Eulogy, grandson leans into a laidback flow punctuated by confessional musings, existential anxiety, and apocalyptic implications. His lyrical introspection gives way to an infectious refrain, “I’m not sure that anything matters at all, it’s the eulogy—for you and me.” The song highlights his inimitable genre alchemy, fusing alternative, hip-hop, and rock seamlessly, and paves the way for additional new music to be released later this year.
Eulogy follows the release of grandson’s 2021 single Drop Dead featuring GRAMMY-nominated pop superstar Kesha and Travis Barker. The track originally appeared as a solo effort on grandson’s debut LP Death of an Optimist before being reworked.
