In an anti-holiday anthem for the ages, Canadian pop-electronic artist Lora Ryan wallows in wishful thinking with the release of her new single, “December”.

“This song is for those finding it hard to get into the holiday spirit,” Lora shares of the simmering seasonal offering. “Playing off titles of popular songs, I flipped the narrative of cheery classics, and made ‘December’ for anyone missing someone they love, but can’t be with during the holidays.”
Following the release of her 2020 debut LP, Reckless, and upwards of 70,000+ streams across Spotify alone, Lora Ryan joined forces once again with longtime producer Adam Royce when it came to the new track. “With a couple of ideas for how the verse and chord progression would go, I knew I needed to take it straight to the studio so Adam could put his magical touch on it,” she recalls.
The song is part of a series of what the Toronto-based singer/songwriter calls #sadgirlsongs — her dynamic channelling personal triumphs and tragedies when it comes to life and love into therapeutic tracks.
“Get ready to shed a tear at this one,” she promises — adding that the rest in the ongoing grouping “tell universal stories” that move audiences emotionally, intellectually, and physically.
“There are definitely different sides to my music, just like there are different sides, facets, and stages of life,” Lora muses. “Life is messy… Sometimes it’s happy. Sometimes it’s sad. Sometimes it’s sexy. Sometimes it’s tragic. It’s a little bit of everything, and can even be more than one thing at once.”
Same with Lora Ryan, whose genre-expansive palette of pop and dance-electronic music boasts soulful R&B-tinged vocals and earworm-worthy melodies. “My music is either sassy, sexy, or sad… But it all adds up to a reflection of me, in a pink, glittered package!”
This season, Lora Ryan’s “December” lands no differently.
