A New Single Release From Syd Since Her 2017 Debut Album
Singer, songwriter, producer, and engineer Syd has released a brand new track today called “Missing Out” via Columbia Records. The song is an anti-Valentine’s Day ode that fuses all of the sonics that Syd does best -- gorgeous vocals, wavy synths, a hard, crunchy beat, and yes, even a glockenspiel.

While “Missing Out” is the first bit of solo music to be released since her 2017 debut, Fin, Syd has continued to be a major cultural force over the last few years, hardly resting on her laurels. Her band, THE INTERNET, released a critically acclaimed fourth album, Hive Mind; she appeared in Drake’s video for “Nice For What;” she wrote a song for Beyonce called “Otherside,” on the Lion King Soundtrack; she collaborated with Zayn, Lil Uzi Vert, Kehlani, Disclosure, Kelly Rowland, and Charlotte Day Wilson; she built a recording studio in her home of Los Angeles; she appeared in a Louis Vuitton ad at Virgil Abloh’s behest; she worked alongside Valentino’s head designer Pierpaolo Piccioli at Paris Fashion Week; she shot an Adidas campaign with Pharrell. Throughout it all, she has remained a master of sensual, future-forward R&B songs, writing, producing, and engineering all of her own work.
Syd is currently working on her film project, partnering on an apparel/fashion project in Japan, teaming up with an upstart Napa Valley sparkling wine brand, and, while she’s been in quarantine, she has been focused on collecting and rehabbing old trucks.
