DAYA Releases Lyrically Powerful Pop-Electronic Crossover Single “Don’t Call”

GRAMMY-winning artist DAYA returns with her new single “Don’t Call,” an emotive pop ballad that also finds the young superstar experimenting across genres with electronic production elements. From a vocal perspective, DAYA’s soulful and ethereal voice shines as she croons the heartfelt (and highly relatable) lyrics about trying your best to get over someone, and the instrumental elements begin with soft, organic chords and grow into a light drum’n’bass influence during the track’s most powerful moments. The American songstress coupled the release of “Don’t Call” with a listening party in Los Angeles on June 27th, the day before its official release. Don’t miss the chance to be among the first to hear “Don’t Call,” which is guaranteed to be receiving heavy radio play this summer.


‘Don’t Call’ has had this magical pull ever since we created it and I’m so excited for it to be out. It feels like a song I’ve always wanted to put into the world and a big emotional release for me; I hope people will feel that in the music


A Pittsburgh native with a passion for music since childhood, Daya practically lived on stage since childhood, wielding her songwriting talent from a young age. Her self-penned, synth-pop anthem “Hide Away” became a double-platinum hit before she turned 20, even earning her a GRAMMY. Collaborating with The Chainsmokers on the global smash “Don’t Let Me Down” solidified her pop stardom, with the track reaching #3 on the Hot 100 chart. Despite major-label success, Daya craved creative control. Releasing critically acclaimed EPs, she showcased her evolving sound – a blend of pop, R&B, and electronic influences. This artistic journey reflects a yearning to reclaim her teenage years, which she missed due to early career demands. Now, she infuses her music with youthful exploration, venturing into folk, pop-punk, and alternative. A prolific collaborator, DAYA seamlessly blends genres, as seen in her Top 40 Canadian hit “Love You More” with Felix Cartal. Daya’s infectious energy extends beyond the studio. She’s captivated audiences with performances on The Today ShowGood Morning AmericaJimmy Kimmel Live!, and The Late Late Show with James Corden, among others.  With a strong social media presence boasting over 3,8M followers and a dedicated fanbase heavily skewed towards Gen Z and the LGBTQ+ community, DAYA’s music continues to resonate with a global audience.
