GRAMMY® Award-winning, multi-platinum pop singer-songwriter Daya has shared “Her,” available now via Sandlot/AWAL on Archodia Play.


“‘Her’ is pretty explicitly about being consumed by memories of a previous lover after a relationship ends,” Daya says, “even when getting intimate with someone else. It’s in those moments that it’s been hardest for me to move on, and I really wanted the track to convey how paralyzing it can all feel in the moment, which is why the second half descends into what feels like some sort of a disorienting bad dream.”

 
 

“Her” marks the latest single from Daya’s eagerly awaited new EP, In Between Dreams, arriving everywhere on Friday, September 16. The EP was first heralded earlier this summer by the acclaimed first single, “Love You When You’re Gone,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Produced by The Gifted (Tate McRae, Kygo), the heartbreaking track is joined an official music video/visualizer streaming now at YouTube.


At only 16, Daya emerged as an extraordinary new pop voice with her breakthrough first two singles, “Hide Away” and “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” both of which earned RIAA platinum certification while rising to the top 30 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” and earning a combined 850M worldwide streams and counting. The Pittsburgh, PA-native celebrated the success of her 2016 debut album, Sit Still, Look Pretty, with her own sold out national headline tour while also sharing stages with the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen and MARINA. The following year saw Daya’s star ascend even higher with The Chainsmokers’ 9x platinum certified blockbuster, “Don’t Let Me Down (Ft. Daya),” a top 3 smash in the US and top 10 favorite around the world boasting over 1.8B YouTube views, as well as a GRAMMY® Award-winner for “Best Dance Recording.”

 
 

An array of diverse releases followed, including solo tracks like “Insomnia” (now with over 200M streams) and collaborations with such artists as Illenium and RL Grime. Finding her voice in the LGBTQ+ community, Daya performed at such major Pride events as the inaugural US World Pride Opening Ceremony while also teaming with such organizations as GLAAD and The Trevor Project. Her truest personal and artistic statement thus far came with last year’s EP, The Difference, which featured, in her words, “fleeting moments of regret, desire, loneliness and sadness while spending more time with myself than I ever have before at home during quarantine.”
