Multi-platinum singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Daniel Seavey reveals a new stunning single ‘Runaway’ via Atlantic Records
The blissfully gauzy track glides towards an entrancing escapist refrain underlined by a cinematic and mounting production.
Daniel says: “I believe the world around us affects us so much. What we surround ourselves with, we become. Sometimes our surroundings help us, other times they hurt us. ‘Runaway’ is about the reoccurring thought I have that, if we’re just able to detach ourselves from the darkness that surrounds us, we may find true peace.”
Embarking on a new chapter of his career, the Why Don’t We co-founder made his solo debut in September with “Can We Pretend That We’re Good?” – an explosive self-penned/produced single that quickly amassed over 10 million streams worldwide. The track was deemed “enticingly sharp and experimental” by Billboard, while Rolling Stone praised Seavey for his “impeccable production skills, stellar vocals, and personal artistry” and PAPERechoed his “keen ear for melodies.” Further highlighted by four alternate acoustic versions, a tell-all appearance on The Zach Sang Show & more, Seavey continues to make waves with the music he was always destined to create.
Earlier this week, Seavey made his live solo debut at The Troubadour in Los Angeles after selling out the show in just two minutes last month. The skilled set featured a mix of new tracks and dynamic covers, produced live in real time and giving his most diehard fans a taste of what is to come in 2023.
On the road, he often penned and produced nascent ideas that would eventually become the foundation of his own unique sound. In 2022, he hunkered down in his home studio and wrote and recorded what would become his debut, led by “Can We Pretend That We’re Good?” He not only sang and produced, but he also played every instrument, infusing a piece of himself upon each facet.
