We’ve been waiting to her Daya‘s new album Sit Still, Look Pretty for so long now and we’re so excited because it has finally been released!
The 17-year-old singer, who has multiple songs playing on the radio right now, opened up to fans on release day in an emotional letter on Twitter.
“I remember being jus a lil baby, naive and inexperienced, trying not to drown at the time, trying to stay afloat amongst everyone else in the industry,” Daya started off the letter. “I had 0 clue how to perform, how to sing without hiding behind a piano, how to even be comfortable with myself. i was fresh out of my junior year of high school and had one song, hide away, the little engine that could.”
“There were more mess ups and terrible shows than i could count in the beginning but i’ve learned not to be so hard on myself — that it’s all part of the process & those will probably still happen every once in a while,” Daya continued. “What also has been huuuge in fueling me & keeping me afloat throughout all this is you guys. i prolly don’t say it enough, but yall are incredible. My debut album is out tomorrow (tonight) & i have never been more excited/ready for something of mine in my life. everything i’ve done so far has been building up to this point. but it’s not about to be just mine anymore, it’s about to be all of yours. can’t wait for you guys to take it in and hopefully love it as much as i do. thank u for all bein apart of my journey, this is still on the beginning.”
