Hayley Kiyoko Returns With New Single, ‘Greenlight’: Listen
Hayley Kiyoko has returned with her first new music since last year’s album Panorama. Listen to the star’s new single Greenlight below.
Kiyoko discussed Greenlight in a statement: “I’ve spent a lot of time and energy trying to prove my worth to people but have realised that if a situation in life is stopping you from moving forward or making you feel trapped, it’s okay to pivot in a new direction.
“Once I embraced that mindset, so many new doors opened. ‘Greenlight’ is about making an active decision to put your energy into the things that are working.
“Of course, there will be roadblocks along the way, but we become our best selves when we surround ourselves with people who challenge us in a healthy way, encourage us to keep digging deeper and support our overall journey.”
She also shared that this was the first song she wrote after Panorama, and “it just felt right to shared it with you all.”
Hayley co-wrote the song with Jesse St. John and it was produced by Oliver “German” Peterhof.
Kiyoko is currently finishing a world tour that has taken her to 33 cities in the UK, Europe and North America. Her remaining tour dates are below.
The singer is also about to release her debut novel, Girls Girls Girls, based on the music video to her song of the same name. Girls Like Girls follows Coley, an Asian-American teen who moves into a new town in the 00s and falls in love with her charismatic new best friend — despite the fact that said best friend has a boyfriend. As she tries to find her place in this new environment, the novel follows her as she deals with the fact that she’s falling in love in a time and place where it isn’t easy to be queer.
