To end the notable year that saw the release of her highly-anticipated debut EP, Mood Swing, Cyn is serving up a wholesome rendition of the Frank Loesser-penned “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” Along with the impressive list of artists who have covered the 1947 classic, which includes Ella Fitzgerald and Andy Williams, Cyn lends her velvety vocals to this piano-adorned tune in a most elegant and sophisticated fashion.
In pure holiday spirit, the performance video sees Cyn draped in an emerald green dress against matching curtains. As Cyn’s crooning crescendos ever so perfectly, we are absolutely blown away by her timeless aura. Whether it be the vintage microphone or Cyn’s lovely vocals, something about her take on “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” just sounds so right this holiday season.
On the “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” video, Cyn shared,
“I had a daydream about being in an emerald dress and singing this song–just all around classic vibes! I knew immediately August Getty would have a dress for me. I was envisioning Dorothy taking a pit stop off of the yellow brick road to sing a song to an audience that is never revealed, and thanks to my friend, Remy Le Boeuf (who helped me with the instrumental arrangement), and my friends at YouTube, my daydream came true just in time for the holidays.”
