Dana Williams is back with the release of her new single “Hard” out today on Island Records. With this release of the new track, we see another level of Williams, showcasing more dynamic instrumentation. “Knee-deep in my own doubt, and I hope that I don’t drown,” Williams effortlessly depicts the relatable struggles of feeling like she’s not good enough and being her own worst critic. The intro features light, feathery acoustics that are soon met with an energetic, heavy drum and bass beat. Her ethereal vocals pair gracefully with angelic strings. Following the releases of “Holiday” and “Do No Harm,” “Hard” is Dana Williams at her most vulnerable, bearing her deepest emotions in this powerfully honest track.
“‘Hard’ came from noticing that I tend to be really hard on myself, and from wanting to explore self-love. There’s a fine line between self-improvement and self-acceptance, and I sometimes have to remember to be gentler with myself and to keep in mind that perfection doesn’t exist.” – Dana Williams
