Daya Announces Debut Album, ‘Sit Still, Look Pretty': Hear a Preview
If you were worried the year would slip away without a LP from Daya, fear not: she won't let you down. (Eh heh.)
The "Hide Away" singer announced today (August 30) that her debut album, Sit Still, Look Pretty, will be released on October 7 via Artbeatz.
The rising 17-year-old sensation, whose voice you're already well acquainted with from this year's chart-topping, radio-dominating Chainsmokers summer smash "Don't Let Me Down," is currently climbing the charts yet again on her own with the title track from her forthcoming debut album, "Sit Still, Look Pretty." (Watch out for the accompanying music video, which was teased during the VMAs, to debut on September 9 on MTV.)
“I have been working tirelessly on this record for almost a year now. It’s the most authentic representation of me as an artist so far, and each song carries a piece of me,” she says of Sit Still, which includes all 6 songs from last year's fantastic self-titled debut EP, plus 8 new tracks.
The album was executive produced by Gino "Farrago" Barletta and largely co-written with Leland (Brett McLaughlin), responsible for much of Troye Sivan's Blue Neighbourhood.
