“Hide Away” hitmaker Daya dropped her latest single “Safe” back in June. Produced with Laleh and Joel Little, the track’s an emotive mid-tempo tune that finds the 19-year-old wishing to return to the times when she felt safe and invincible. Now, the song’s accompanied by a mesmerizing visual to deepen the narrative.
Exploring the themes on the track, the video sees the singer keeping herself locked away from the outside world in a pastel pink bedroom. She watches life go by on television screens and peeps at it through her windows. But wait for it: When she finally cracks open a wall in her room, she’s taken to a mystical place.
The song’s been launched along with a social media campaign, which encourages fans to share their own interpretation of what ‘safe’ means to them. “I want my song to be an invitation to start a positive dialog in a world in need of compassion,” Daya said in a video on Instagram.
