The story of ’New Year’
About the Song:
Husband and wife duo Toby & Pip have been a couple for over 11 years. At a friend’s wedding one New Year’s Eve, they realised they had shared that midnight moment together since they first met & they wanted to do so every year moving forward. This inspired ‘New Year’, a soulful & uplifting love song about always having an anchor - a special someone by your side to bring in each new year with. This festive anthem is a declaration that, despite everything that might be going on around them, they will always have each other.
