Gearing up for a prolific chapter, rising pop songstress Annika Wells unveils a new single entitled “Stay High” today via Epic Records. Listen to “Stay High”—HERE.
Produced by trusted collaborator and superstar Illenium and co-written with GRAMMY® Award-nominated phenom Julia Michaels and fellow powerhouse songwriter Jason Evigan, the track glides on heavenly beats and airy production towards a bold and blissful refrain, “Don’t want this night to end, so we gotta stay high.” It illuminates the dynamics of her expansive voice and vivid lyricism.
About the song, Annika shared,“‘Stay High’ is one of these songs that feels like a total full circle moment. To have Illenium, my oldest collaborator, and Julia Michaels and Jason Evigan, my songwriting idols, all on this song is insane to me. I’m so happy for it to be out into the world.”
“Stay High” arrives on the heels of “Modern Art,” another sparkling showcase of the Los Angeles-based artist’s clever, candid songwriting. Before dropping her Vol. 1/Epic Records debut single—the unapologetic “Fuck Being Sober”—last year, Wells had already proven her chops, penning tracks for acts like Jonas Brothers, BTS, PRETTYMUCH, and Steve Aoki. Her vocals and songwriting have also powered two Billboard dance hits on collaborations with Illenium’s “Nightlight” and Midnight Kids’ “Run It.”
Now, Annika Wells is ready to show off more of her powerful voice as a solo artist. Stay tuned for more new music this year, as she prepares her debut project.
