Illinois rockers Plain White T’s have released new track ‘Happy’.
As its name suggests, the new tune takes a positive approach to life, and follows the release of ‘Spaghetti Tattoo’ earlier this year.

Describing ‘Happy’, Plain White T’s frontman Tom Higgenson explained that whilst the new track tries to look on the bright side of life, it’s also about getting through darker times, saying:
“The thing I love about ‘Happy’ is that the lyrics are so optimistic and fun, but the chords and the melodies are so melancholy.
“It’s like, ‘Ok, I know I’m going through something right now, but I just wanna get over it already and feel good again!’ Like I know things are gonna get better, but I’m not quite there yet.”
Higgenson was recently in the news for bringing a smile to people’s faces, when he surprised a young cancer patient with a live rendition of his band’s huge tune ‘Hey There Delilah’ – which was the same track the patient, Delilah, was named after.
The band will perform at When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas this October.
