Ever since we heard Daya‘s “Hide Away” for the first time in 2015, we knew she was bound to be a star.
Following her breakout success and first ever GRAMMY nomination and win earlier this year, the eighteen-year-old multi-platinum artist is keeping that star qualityÂ with the release of her new single â€œNew.â€ Â
â€œNewâ€ marks the first new music and creative direction from Daya since signing to Interscope Records this summer â€“ her first major record label deal. The Stargate and Sir Nolan-produced track was co-written by Daya, Stargate, Sir Nolan, James Newman & Brett McLaughlin and was recorded at The Stellar House in Venice, CA.
Listen to the song below:
â€œâ€˜Newâ€™ really is the start of something new. Itâ€™s a sharper, more direct perspective coming from me. No more talking in circles around my feelings. Itâ€™s honest, itâ€™s raw, and itâ€™s emotionally intense,â€ Daya says of the track. â€œI want it to be something people can cry to or scream out or dance sporadically to. Mainly, something that wakes them from a certain numbness and forces them to feel.â€Â
