After teasing fans on social media earlier this week, groundbreaking pop star Hayley Kiyoko has unveiled her new single “Demons” available now via Atlantic Records at all DSPs and streaming services. The hypnotic and mysterious track shows a darker side of Kiyoko and arrives as the newest song from Hayley’s project, I’M TOO SENSITIVE FOR THIS SHIT. The bold, brave, and unapologetic body of work will feature “Demons,” “I Wish,” and more songs to be released over the next few months. Hayley recently took to Instagram to share the inspiration of what will be her most personal project to date.
“Demons is really personal to me” says Hayley. “I had the chorus lyrics written in my notes ‘please forgive me I’ve got demons in my head, trying to feed me lies until I’m dead’. There was something so haunting about it I wanted to try to turn it into something positive. I wanted to sing about mental health and battling the inner ‘demons’ many of us struggle with. But with a heavy upbeat track that everyone can sing and support you with. It’s so important for people struggling to realize that they’re not alone and I hope this song can play a part in sparking that realization.”
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.
