about

Tapping into the emotiveness and drama of fado music, herMajesty's new single, "Lisbon Street", captures the space between the present and past and fantasy and reality. Accentuated by a field recording of a Lisbon tram, swirling cello lines and 1970s psychedelic guitars, JP's vocals bring to life the lyric "it's a beautiful city that drags me down".

Track Name: Lisbon Street
LISBON STREET

The sun goes down
On Lisbon Street
A fiery red
On weathered brick
Where you’re not wanted here anymore
And you, a ghostly pale
In your retreat,
A quick reflection
At the breech.
Where you’re not wanted anymore

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL CITY
THAT DRAGS ME DOWN
THESE LOVERS FACES
LONGING FOR ANOTHER DAY IN THE
DUSTY SQUARE.

A sudden screech
On back-lit streets
Someone jumps a
Narrow curb
Where you’re not wanted anymore.
With your old plastic doll,
Hanging round’
Your neck,
The time has come to let her go, let her go
‘Cause she’s not wanted anymore.

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL CITY
THAT DRAGS ME DOWN
THESE LOVERS FACES
LONGING FOR ANOTHER DAY IN THE
DUSTY SQUARE.
