Today, emerging artist Gracie Abrams releases the video for her spellbinding single “Stay,” which has already garnered millions of streams around the world since it’s release in November and is currently one of the most played songs on Australian taste maker radio station Triple J. A fitting introduction to the 20-year-old artist, the diary-like visual for “Stay” perfectly channels the raw intimacy of her music: a stripped-back yet nuanced sound centered on her sharply detailed lyrics. Over the years, Abrams has shared homespun clips of her songs on social media, amassing over 200k followers on Instagram before she’d even released her first song.
Along with spotlighting her subtle but stunning vocal presence, “Stay” showcases what Complex recently hailed as a “delicate sensibility and keen eye for the details that make heartbreak really sting.” “Stay” was written by Abrams and produced by New Zealand native Sam de Jong.
