Donna Missal exposed a new stunning single “Flicker”
After a difficult year following being released from her label, the LA-based artist rose from the smoking embers more determined than ever. The heartbreaking experience led to introspection and the desire to connect more meaningfully. She dug deep and found her creative spark, hitting the studio to transform her pain into power. Emerging with music that felt like the most authentic she’s ever created, Donna begins her new journey today with the release of her empowering single “Flicker”, releasing independently via ADA Worldwide.
The pulsating, futuristic electronic production drives the song and provides a swirling sonic landscape for Donna’s beautifully complex vocals and empowering lyrics to shine through. It’s almost as if you can feel her healing.
Donna explains: “I wrote Flicker with my friends after I got dropped from my record deal, so it’s got this fierce energy about it. It’s my way of coming out of that experience swinging, fighting for myself.”
She set out to create a dance video that was a visual representation of her journey, challenging herself both mentally and physically. With no prior dance experience, she spent weeks working with a choreographer and strength training to get her body into shape and ready to perform. Along the way Donna documented the process and has been candidly sharing the deeply personal experience with her fans through social media.
Donna added: “I made the music video to put myself through something physically painful and transforming, to push my own limits in my art to reflect where I was at in my life. I trained for a couple of months before we shot and it was something so challenging for me to sink into, to keep me off social media and connecting with my body in this new way, reaching my own breaking points and getting past them, failing hard and still getting up the next day and trying again until I had it down. The experience itself became this representation of endurance and fortitude that I made this whole new album about, so I’m just really excited to be sharing it, especially after being as private as I’ve been during the process.”
