25 MAY 2018 (TORONTO, ON) – “Girl,” Donna Missal’s new single, was given its world premiere today by Zane Lowe on Beats 1. Lowe said, “ I love the modern production, the feel of it. But it also has like a timeless, latter-day Prince vibe to it.” Listen/embed the segment at:


Available HERE, “Girl” touches on a subject that’s rarely discussed in any forum – the emotional damage inflicted when, as Missal sings, “women hate on other women.” The stripped-back yet intricately textured track unfolds with both gentle playfulness and piercing vulnerability.


“It’s been amazing to see this huge influx of art, music and media by women and for women – intended to support and encourage every kind of women to claim our space. I think it’s important to identify what makes us stronger and louder, and we have proven that we can shift the culture around us by coming together to address our common issues and goals,”  says Donna Missal. “When we criticize and attack one another, we diminish our voice in the conversation for equality and social change, so I wanted to write something that speaks on that experience. I don’t know a single woman who hasn’t experienced this in some way, and I want to see that change.”


The official video, directed by Justin Bettman, can be viewed HERE. Bettman – who has earned acclaim for the ongoing art project Set in the Street, which repurposes found materials to create interior sets on city streets – also helmed the video for Missal’s “Driving.”

“Girl,” which was produced by Tim Anderson (Solange, BANKS, Halsey), is the third in a series of two-track singles from Missal. The A-side is a studio version of “Girl” while the B-side is a stripped-down live take. Today, Missal also shared a live performance video of the song. View “Girl (Live from Capitol Studios)” HERE.


Missal, who will release her full-length debut on Harvest Records later this year, will open for Max Frost at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn on June 20 and headline The Hi-Hat in Los Angeles on June 23.


Her debut single, “Keep Lying,” premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1, then shot to the top of the Spotify Viral and HypeMachine charts. Hailed by Milk as an “earth-shaking vocalist with unique resonance,” she is featured on two tracks from Macklemore’s latest album, Gemini: “Over It,” which she co-wrote, and “Glorious.” Missal 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 recorded for Netflix’s “The Get Down” – won a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Original Song. Her songs have also been licensed by such shows as “House of Lies,” “Easy” and “The Vampire Diaries.”
