Born in coastal Massachusetts but raised in Nicaragua, Hayley Sabella has always been inspired by dramatic landscapes and vast seasonal changes.

The third single, “Cape Cod,” released today, re-imagines a fan favorite from 2018’s Forgive the Birds.

Norwegian rapper Ivan Ave shares ‘Double Goodbyes’ LP

“known for his ability to mix flexing lyrics about wooing women with the more existential shit, and his style is significantly old school – a true homage to the rappers of a bygone era that taught him how to make it through their work.” – Highsnobiety

“straight money” – EARMILK

“Double Goodbyes to me is like an awkward and too long hand shake, at the end of a decade of making rap songs. I tried to not make another rap album, and was halfway successful. I like how the record came out different from previous projects, but still feels like a natural addition to my catalogue. I was able to get some things out of my system, both creatively and emotionally, so I feel ready to start making new stuff again soon.”
