Donna Missal is “Hurt By You”
Donna Missal has released and shared the official video for her new single “Hurt By You.” Donna directed the clip, which unfolds on the neon-lit Fremont strip in old Las Vegas. With a nod to classic 90’s music videos, Missal captures a relationship at the crossroads and celebrates the lure of the open road. “I made this video with friends. I wanted it to look like the song sounds, using the energy and color of the old Vegas strip,” says Donna Missal. “I love the process of taking something from the conception in your imagination to completing it in real life, outside of yourself and into the world. I love making worlds for songs to live inside of. I wanted ‘Hurt By You’ to have its own world”.
A candid, unconventional break-up song that sidesteps bitterness and celebrates the journey ahead, “Hurt By You” is the first official single from Donna’s forthcoming album, which will be released by Harvest Records later this year. Andrew Wells (X Ambassadors, Bebe Rexha, Fitz and the Tantrums) produced the track. “Hurt By You”, which was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, has already racked up more than 311,000 cumulative global streams. “Hurt By You” follows her late 2019 single, “You Burned Me”. A potent emerging musical force, the New Jersey native melds alternative rock, soul and roots music with ease and has amassed more than 32 million global career streams, including over 16 million U.S. streams.
Donna will return as special guest on the second leg of Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi’s sold-out European arena tour, which kicks off on March 2nd in Manchester. The run will include two nights at London’s SSE Arena Wembley. In recent interviews with Billboard and The Line of Best Fit, Capaldi has had high praise for Donna, saying: “You can’t take your eyes off her when she performs because she’s overflowing with passion. She’s got a voice that’s like being punched in the face in the best possible way, it’s so powerful and it knocks you back. She’s one of the best voices around at the moment, 100 per cent”.
