Melanie Martinez Shares Her Haunting New Track

Melanie Martinez shares haunting new track Gingerbread Man

Sometimes the best things in life are free, and Melanie Martinez agrees with that.  On Dec. 23 the singer/songwriter released her first holiday song (‘Gingerbread Man’) via Twitter as an early Christmas present to her fans!

Although the song is holiday based, it still has her sweet-creepy pop sound, similar to the sound on her album Cry Baby.

The song isn’t your usual Christmas song with lyrics like, “I need a gingerbread man, the one I’ll feed / The gingerbread man, the one I’ll eat.” and “Can’t you see?  I only want the ones who never see me / But I’m happy / I love playing these games until my heart bleeds / It bleeds jelly.”

Even the artwork for the single has Melanie’s adorable touch to it, showing a little girl holding a gingerbread man, with its arm and leg ripped off bleeding jelly.
