Hey Violet release a new track — “Close My Eyes” — today on Hi or Hey/Capitol Records. It is now available for streaming and purchase from all digital partners. An official video will follow soon.

“’Close My Eyes’ is essentially about living in a fantasy land, says front woman Rena Lovelis. “It’s about the idea of still wanting to be with an ex who has already moved on. There’s definitely a level of denial that goes into being in that sort of headspace because you’re basically rejecting the present reality and not allowing yourself to move forward. The song sounds very calm and chill but in the lyrical content there’s an air of tension because of that refusal to accept things as they are.”

“Close My Eyes,” which was written by Hey Violet with Sean Kennedy, Tim Anderson, and Aron Forbes (the latter two who co-produced), is the second of four new tracks the band is set to release throughout the spring and summer. The first, “Better By Myself,” was released in April, along with an official video that can be watched HERE.Idolator called “Better By Myself” “as catchy as it is relatable,” while Celeb Mix says “the song’s mid-tempo beat and addictive chorus will leave the listener singing [it] all day.” Watch Hey Violet perform “Better By Myself” live at Capitol Studios HERE.
