FRESH: ‘Hurt By You’ – Donna Missal

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”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
