Happy People

Album: Happy People (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Peace's second album, this was penned by Harry Koisser on tour in Australia. He told NME: "You can tell from the atmosphere of it that it's not a happy song – it's not like Pharrell's 'Happy.'"
  • Producer Jim Abbiss recorded the drums for this song onto vinyl, then taped the turntable playing the drums. According to Koisser, this was for "a bit of analogue warmth."
