Daya has returned with a new track, appropriately titled “New.”
The immediate, infectious song features a shuffling, syncopated rhythm and evolves through sections of banging beats and atmospheric electronic pop.
“I’m missing you, I’m missing you,” Daya sings on the hook. “What the hell did I do? Did I do? Messing with someone new, thinking I wanted to, turns out I don’t want new, I want you.”
“‘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 said in a prepared statement. “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.”
The song is the first new music from the singer (aka Grace Martine Tandon) since her 2016 debut album Sit Still, Look Pretty.
