Daya Announces Highly Anticipated Debut Album, "Sit Still, Look Pretty"
October holds such great things. Breakout pop princess DAYA has announced her full length, debut album to be revealed this autumn. After an absolutely smashing year for the artist, her solo project is finally mastered and ready for reveal. The announcement comes fresh after her exclusive sneak peek during the MTV Video Music Awards.
The 17-year-old Pittsburgh pick up recorded the album in Los Angeles over the past year. It was executive produced by Gino "Farrago" Barletta alongside the creative vision of Daya, continuing the momentum from her debut self-titled EP Daya that released in September 2015.
"The album’s RIAA gold-certified title track and current single, “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” rocketed into the top 10 on iTunes overall songs chart last week, where it currently still sits. The track also blasted into the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, jumping 20 spots to its current #36 slot. This marks Daya’s third consecutive song – and all her singles to date – to enter the Top 40, succeeding her debut breakout song “Hide Away” and her double-platinum hit with The Chainsmokers, “Don’t Let Me Down.” The song’s music video will make its broadcast prime time premiere 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,” says Daya. “I’m so grateful for all the support I’ve received over the past year and it still feels surreal to be releasing my first album. I am so stoked for the world to finally hear it!!”
