Dua Saleh Returns With New Song “daylight falls”
Los Angeles-based Sudanese-American singer-songwriter Dua Saleh returned with a new song “daylight falls” on September 20, 2023.
The song is the first music in two years since the 2021 EP “CROSSOVER”.
Also the single is first release on their new record label, Ghostly International.
The track is inspired by the high-stakes angst of pop-punk and their experiences with mental health.
It was written by Dua Saleh, and Tim Randolph, who also produced the track. The accompanying music video was directed by Braden Lee.
Dua Saleh said of the song, “I was thinking about a point when I was at my lowest, and being a friend for kids who might be feeling the same, at the brink of it, especially with all that's going on with trans and abortion legislation. Everyone's going through it.”
They continued, “It's about healing and finding solace in people willing to listen to you in times of darkness. To encourage anyone to express troublesome feelings with someone, especially when you're feeling at your lowest. I hope my art can be used as a tool to calm people in times of duress.”
- The track supports the women-led anti-atrocities non-profit organization Darfur Women's Action Group, which works to empower and support survivors of the Darfur genocide, both in Sudan and in the diaspora.
Dua Saleh said “My home country of Sudan has broken out into a Civil War and a number of people are dealing with the effects both physically and mentally. I'd like to highlight a non-profit organization, Darfur Women's Action Group, that is working to assist marginalized communities in Sudan and in Darfur at this time. Please contribute what you can.”
