Rising L.A. based singer-songwriter Delacey has released her new single, “The Subway Song,” today via HITCO. On “ The Subway Song,” Delacey captures the strange paradox of feeling hopelessly alone in the chaos of New York City as she sings, “take me home I feel homesick.” Delacey wrote and recorded “The Subway Song” while recording in New York City last summer with co-producer Ido Zmishlany; inspired by the city, Delacey created the song’s train-like rhythm by banging on a piano and recorded part of the song’s vocals while inside a subway station.

“A song can come at any time and place for me. Even when I’m crying on a subway home from the studio and have to write it on my phone,” shares Delacey, “I’m so excited that this song is out.

“The Subway Song” is the second single from Delacey, following her debut single, “My Man,” released this spring. Delacey has quickly begun establishing herself as an artist to watch with “My Man” as she’s already amassed over 6 million streams globally with the single and BuzzFeed declared, “this bluesy single is just the start from her.” At radio, Delacey is continuing to have multi-format success at Top 40, HAC, Alternative and Triple-A, where “My Man” is chart bound and spinning on some of the top stations in the United States.
This summer, Delacey will continue her Los Angeles residency at Hotel Café on August 7th. She will also take the stage at major festivals like Outside Lands and Austin City Limits. For tickets and more information, please visit: https://www.delaceymusic.com/tour
Originally from Orange County, Delacey started writing songs and playing piano at age seven while idolizing the likes of Stevie Nicks and Billie Holiday. Over the years, Delacey has developed her own narrative voice that is both self-aware and sharply poetic, instilling each track with the melodic ingenuity she’s shown in co-writing songs like Halsey’s “Without Me,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as well as songs for Demi Lovato, Zara Larsson, The Chainsmokers, and more.
