A congratulations in order for Donna Missal who 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, and Nate 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.”
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.”
