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 Ke$ha and Travis Barker. The track originally appeared as a solo effort on grandson’s debut LP Death of an Optimist before being reworked. Rolling Stone proclaimed, “‘Drop Dead’ moves effortlessly between atmospheric, pop-leaning verses and a straight-to-the-rafters arena rock chorus.” Additionally, Variety christened it “an empowering call for perseverance in the face of hardship.” Next up, grandson will embark on a massive global headline tour. Kicking things off with a two-month North American trek, the first leg is set to begin on May 12th in San Diego, CA at the House of Blues and visits major markets coast-to-coast.

More about grandson: grandson molds genres, sculpting rock, hip-hop, and electronic into a vision of alternative you’ve never quite heard, seen, or felt before. Having amassed a staggering 1 billion streams and counting, the platinum-certified Canadian-American maverick flouts boundaries only to achieve stylistic unity with alacrity. He infiltrated culture as a sonic insurgent with a pair of EPs—a modern tragedy Vol. 1-2—and the 2x platinum single “Blood // Water.” In 2020, he continued to engage with his epically enigmatic full-length debut, Death of An Optimist. He’s the rare outlier who can appear with Senator Bernie Sanders on a live stream and contribute two songs to James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, namely “Oh No!!!” [with VIC MENSA & Masked Wolf] and “Rain” [with Jessie Reyez]—also remixed by star Idris Elba. Meanwhile, he’s impressively collaborated with everyone from Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and Steve Aoki to Travis Barker, Kesha, K. Flay, X Ambassadors, Whethan, Two Feet, and DE’WAYNE, to name a few. Speaking of high-powered collabs, he impressively joined forces with Tom Morello for “Hold The Line” and performed the latter on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with the legendary guitarist. In addition, he has incited the applause of Rolling Stone, Variety, Billboard and many more as he continues to quietly reshape alternative with more music and surprises in 2023.
