Donna Missal – hailed as an “earth-shaking vocalist with unique resonance” by Milk – has signed to Harvest Records, which will release her full-length debut later this year. “Thrills,”her new two-track single, is now available HERE. The A-side is the studio version of the heart-piercing track and the B-side is a stripped-down live recording. Missal, a New Jersey native, wrote “Thrills” with Tim Anderson (Solange, BANKS, Halsey), who also produced, andNate Mercerau (Leon Bridges). View the “Thrills” video HERE.
“‘Thrills’ is about feeling powerful within your sexuality. It’s a proclamation of confidence, celebrating self-worth,” Donna Missal explains. “I hope to convey that in my music – that what makes you sexy is entirely up to you and you deserve confidence. It all comes from knowing yourself inside out. I’m learning about myself all the time and my music is meant to tell that story.”
Missal will be supporting K.Flay in Denver and Salt Lake City in May. See below for itinerary.After the release of her debut single, “Keep Lying,” Billboard noted, “the singer’s drop kick of a vocal took the blogosphere by storm.” The song premiered on Beats 1 and topped both the Spotify Viral and HypeMachine charts. “Keep Lying” was followed by “Sick,” which The FADER praised as “a smoky come-hither track worthy of your hottest advances.” “We’re simply obsessed,” said Milk in a review of “Transformer,” which marked her first collaboration with Tim Anderson. Lemonade said, “[she’s] a powerhouse that does not allow a single note to stray.”
She is featured on two tracks from Macklemore’s latest album, Gemini: “Over It,” which she co-wrote, and “Glorious.” She also featured on Rudimental’s “No Fear” and co-wrote Leon Bridges’ “Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand.” “Power” – an original song she co-wrote with Baz Luhrmann and performed for Netflix’s “The Get Down” – won a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Original Song. Missal’s songs have also been licensed by such shows as “House of Lies,” “Easy” and “The Vampire Diaries.”
