Award-winning singer/songwriter Grace VanderWaal has returned with brand new music for 2019! The multi-talented artist has released her new single “Stray” today via Columbia Records. The track features a moody, searching sound that’s a departure from her signature airy ukulele riffs, but still showcases her raspy, captivating vocals. Grace has also shared the new song’s official music video, a creative vision from Grace herself that was brought to life with help from director Blythe Thomas. Watch HERE. “Stray” is her first new music release following her last single “Clearly” in early 2018, with a lot more to come in 2019.
“’Stray’ is close to me,” says Grace. “Not because it’s the re-start of my continuing path, but because it explains the exhilarating fear and freedom of growing up. Growing up feels like a storm you weren’t prepared for. But how do you prepare? By practicing and appreciating you.”
Always evolving and keen on expanding her artistry, VanderWaal most recently tackled the title role in Disney’s Stargirl, a film adaptation of Jerry Spinelli’s best-selling young adult novel and one of the first original films to premiere on the company’s upcoming streaming service to be released early 2020.
To date, Grace has accumulated over 500 million streams worldwide, over 300 million video views and 10 million social media followers.
