Monica Rizzio questions the ongoing hustle and bustle of life in her feel-good new track “Nothin’,” featured on her forthcoming sophomore solo project Sunshine Is Free. On the laidback song, which includes delicate acoustic guitar, steady percussion, soaring electric guitar parts and warm vocals, Rizzio admits, “I feel a little guilty when I wanna be lazy/ Why’s it so hard to do nothin’/ Why we always gotta be runnin.’”
Rizzio travelled from Cape Cod to Nashville last fall to pen the sunny tune with Gwen Sebastian and Michael Rinne (Kelsey Waldon, Erin Rae, Caroline Spence), who serves as producer on her album, out Oct. 4.
"I was down in Nashville and had a writing session set up with Michael Rinne, my producer, and Gwen Sebastian,” Rizzio tells Billboard. “Michael called me and said, ‘Let's write a song about doing nothing.’ I said I loved the idea!”
