’21st Century Girl’ is the new single from the upcoming musical ‘Millennials’ written by Elliot Clay and perfomed by Lisa Olivant. The debut single ‘See You’ performed by Luke Bayer has been streamed in over 70 countries and 6 continents worldwide. 

A second single was due to be recorded the day the UK entered lockdown. However, through the magic of technology and the talent at Auburn Jam Music studio, where the record is produced, lockdown has not stopped them from being able to release a brand new single – enter ’21st Century Girl’! 

With blaring horns, insane vocals and some seriously funky grooves, ’21st Century Girl’ tells the story of a female-identifying millennial finding empowerment through adversity. 

‘Millennials’ is a brand new pop-concert musical about extraordinarily ordinary people and aims to push the boundaries of what musical theatre for the 21st Century could sound like. 

Elliot Clay is an Off West End award-nominated composer (The State of Things/Jack Studio), (Thomas/VAULTS festival), (Our Seasons End/Above the Arts) and actor (Million Dollar Quartet – UK Tour & West End), (Peter Pan/Selladoor)

“I’m so thrilled to have sung on the anthem that is “21st Century Girl” from the upcoming musical, Millennials. I’ve known Elliot for over a decade and to work together bringing this important song to life has been such an honour, and so much fun. “21st Century Girl” is genre-bending, soulful, powerful and should be played loud! I’m sure the message will resonate with so many of you and I hope all the girls listening feel strong, empowered and united. But most of all, it really is a bop, so have a dance and enjoy!”
