Hayfitz, has shared his new single “Daylight.” The track is off the NYC based singer/songwriter’s forthcoming release Capsules, due out May 2020. Hayfitz is currently on tour throughout North America, performing at various venues, private residences and other nontraditional venues, and will be a showcasing artist at SXSW 2020 – keep an eye out for more dates around the festival in March to be announced, along with more North American dates supporting the release.
Capsules was recorded over eighteen days in a Seattle home surrounded by idyllic views of the Puget Sound and the region’s mountains and evergreens. The setting brought Hayfitz the emotional space to deliver the record with resolve, bringing intentional details to each song and distilling the franticness of a Brooklyn lifestyle. Capsules took on its current shape in a secluded winter cabin in Parker, Pennsylvania where friend turned collaborator, Patrick Gregg, hosted Hayfitz for two separate week-long periods. Each inspired by contemporaries like Andy Shauf and Chad Vangaalen, Gregg and Hayfitz collaborated to bring a range of woodwinds to the recording process, with Gregg playing everything from bass clarinet to saxophone.
Hayfitz on “Daylight:”
“Daylight is about the all too familiar habit in which we tend to have our most vulnerable and revealing conversations while under the influence and during the evening hours. It’s about craving transparency and intimacy while sober and with nowhere to hide. It’s so easy to fall into this seemingly never-ending loop – going around and around for months or even years without truly making any progress since you’re too apprehensive to have the big conversation. This song has existed for quite a while but have been especially pertinent in my life over this past year so I’m really excited to be putting it into the world.”
