Daya Previews Debut Album: ‘It’s About Finding Yourself’

This time last year, Daya was still a relatively unknown quantity, a Pittsburgh high schooler with a debut single that had received some love within the pop blogosphere. Now, the 17-year-old is a bona fide hitmaker, with three Top 40 singles and a forthcoming debut album that promises more empowerment for young listeners.

“Nothing in my life now is the same as it was a year ago,” says Daya, who first spoke with Fuse last October, when debut single “Hide Away” was creeping up the lower half of the Hot 100. “I was a senior in high school, and I wasn’t thinking that far down the road about my career. But the change has been great, I’ve embraced it, and I’m super excited for what’s to come.”
