It's the start of a new chapter...

Multi-platinum alt-pop savant Daya returns with new single 'First Time'.

The Grammy winning songwriter has knuckled down during 2020, using lockdown as a means to focus her creative energies.

Working on a raft of different projects and ideas, she opens her fresh chapter with a bold new single.

Out now, 'First Time' is the sound of someone overhauling their approach, switching up their processes and allowing new aspects to illuminate her art.

Produced by Svante Halldin and co-written by Daya, Shy Martin and Halldin, it's something she terms a "rebirth".

“‘First Time’ was a natural result of being more in touch with myself and the world around me, knowing exactly what I want and how to get there. It feels like a rebirth of self – sonically and visually – and it’s a small piece of an entire world I’m building with my new partnership with J Kash at Sandlot Records and AWAL,” she comments.

“I’m the most creatively stimulated and motivated I’ve felt in a while and I hope others can tap into that energy and get just as excited for this new era as I am.”
