Penning “Merry Christmas One And All” sitting in bed on Christmas morning 2019, no one could have guessed at that time, what was lurking around the corner in 2020.
The track shines the spotlight on the current, poignant and topical social issues such as Addition, Loneliness, Homelessness and child poverty, that are all too prevalent in our society, and make us all feel we could do more, especially at this time of year. The song marries the harsh but true with an optimism and eternally hope that somehow, love and our will save the day.

It’s out of the traps with all guns blazing for Danny Burton with the imminent release of the controversial title track from his eagerly anticipated second album - “Entitled Generation” - with topical observations on the state of the World delivered with a visceral incisiveness that smacks you around the face and forces you to listen.
Straight from the off, the track’s stark imagery takes no prisoners, and evokes a desolate World where a bemasked family stare blankly into their devices, with the opening line of “We’ve never been so connected/We’ve never been so alone” - delivered with a derisory rasp from Burton - setting the scene for the rest of the song.
With technological references aplenty throughout - “we don’t need your approval - we’ve got 1000 likes/we’re wearing out our fingers swiping left and right” is bang up-to-date too - with the recent returns to school after 6 months of lockdown being accompanied with reports of struggling students, and inabilities to concentrate due to the endless distractions, and indeed - wearing out of finger ends!!
Burton isn’t finished yet though - with a pomp and swagger to rival the greats, and alluding to the current scourge of “Woke Culture”, he spits out the line “We don’t care if you hate us, although we’ll soon take offence” - this song serves as a grave warning to anyway who thinks they can get in his way.
This first single release, see’s Danny Team up with writing partner Aaron Brown for a wonderful collaboration, matching Brown’s scathing lyrical world view with Burton’s ear for an anthem.
