“New” marks the first new music and creative direction from Daya since signing to Interscope Records this summer – 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.
“‘New’ really is the start of something new. It’s a sharper, more direct perspective coming from me. No more talking in circles around my feelings. It’s honest, it’s raw, and it’s emotionally intense,” Daya says of the track. “I 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.”
“Daya is a phenomenal talent,” commented Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman and CEO John Janick, who signed her to the label. “She’s built her own audience from the ground up and we are excited to help her take her career to even greater heights.”
Daya most recently appeared on Billboard‘s annual “21 Under 21” list for the second consecutive year and is the youngest member of Forbes‘ annual 30 Under 30 list this year. She has previously listed as one of NYLON‘s “21 Cool New Artists 21 and Under,” and Rolling Stone‘s “10 New Artists You Need to Know.” In 2016, she was featured on the 5x platinum track “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Chainsmokers and released her RIAA gold-certified debut album Sit Still, Look Pretty.
