Mabel released a not-so joyful, holiday single in honor of the difficult times and feelings the season brings for some. 

The holiday season is not so merry for everyone. As a result of the lonely effects the holiday brings, Mabel surprised fans with a new melancholy pop record.  The new project is titled “Loneliest Time of Year” and features sorrowful lyrics about the season, such as, “Sorry I’m not so merry, but I feel this yearly,” and “Sleigh bells ringing still I feel sad. It’ll have you thinking of all the things that you don’t have.” Listen to Mabel’s new single here.

As opposed to more festive lyrics, Mabel explains the lyrics on Instagram saying that they reflect some realities for people who have the loneliest time of year. She also calls for people to be more kind and take care of each other for the holidays.
