On March 20, 2020, MonkeyRat started the year with their hit single, Good Morning Reykjavík, a real funky dance number with a comical spin on the infectious chorus. U Gotta Love Being U, is MonkeyRat’s first pop/singer-songwriter/folk pop, single and Anna’s first co-written song with Hans Andrias Jacobsen and Beinir Troest Rasmussen.
