Daya Premieres New Song “Safe”
- American singer-songwriter Grace Martine Tandon, aka Daya has shared a new song “Safe” from her upcoming yet-to-be-titled sophomore album.
The song was written the day after the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas in October. It was written by Laleh Pourkarim, Joel Little and Daya.
She said of the song on a statement;
“‘Safe’ was written the day after the Vegas shooting. I felt powerless and lost trying to come to terms with the senselessness of it. The song draws on the feelings of safety / invincibility that I experienced during my early childhood, where the only big horror stories were well-crafted movies or books of fiction. But there are always antagonists in society trying to build their own real-life horror stories, and now these stories increasingly seem to be happening in traditionally safe spaces like schools and festivals. We’re being forced to confront — at younger and younger ages - the proximity of evil and how easily it could affect us or someone we love. The song explores that childhood illusion of safety and how I wish I could wrap a blanket of safety around myself and the people I love.”
- Daya is known as vocals for The Chainsmokers 2016's song "Don't Let Me Down". The song won Best Dance Recording at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.
She released a debut album "Sit Still, Look Pretty" including her smash hit "Hide Away" in 2016.
Last October, the lead single "New" was released from her sophomore album. The song is the first song to be released under Interscope Records after Daya’s split from her independent label Artbeatz.
The second album is expected to be released later 2018.
