“’L.O.V.E. Me’ is a song I’ve been trying to write for years!! I’m very protective of my personal life but admittedly I’m a big romantic at heart. ‘L.O.V.E. Me’ captures what it feels like to fall head over heels and want to shout from the rooftops about it. It’s showcasing the classic struggle we sometimes face when someone tells you they love you in private, but is too scared to express that love publicly. I hope this song brings some relatability to anyone who is craving that declaration of love.”
In January, Hayley will take her empowered and electrifying live show on an epic “I’m Too Sensitive For This Shit” North American headlining tour featuring a stop at NYC’s Terminal 5 on February 20th and culminating with a performance at LA’s Palladium on March 13th. In addition to her headlining tour, Hayley will also appear at multiple festivals including the recently announced Lollapalooza South America.
