British singer Daley makes a return with his brand new single “Until the Pain is Gone” featuring Jill Scott. On the smooth track, Daley and Jill sing about two lovers who aren’t transparent about how they feel about each other.
“The song kind of came out of frustration I was feeling in a relationship,” Daley told Billboard. “The situation was going nowhere because we both weren’t really fully able to admit how we felt about each other and just be honest. And that situation didn’t really work out, but for the purposes of writing this song, I just kind of gave it a happy ending and idealized it a little bit.”
“Until the Pain is Gone” is packed with lush harmonies and soaring vocals from Daley and Jill. The two singers’ voices blend so well on the track that it almost sounds like they recorded it together in the studio at the same time — something that’s rare these days.
Speaking on his collaboration with Jill, Daley said, “Having Jill involved is an honor. She’s royalty in my eyes- someone I’ve looked up to musically from a very malleable stage in my songwriting career. When I was just starting to understand how to put my feelings into song, Jill was one of a handful of influential artists who’s music helped me figure out how to channel that.”
“Until the Pain is Gone” is the first single from Daley’s upcoming sophomore album, The Spectrum, that will release this summer on BMG.
Daley will join Leela James on their joint Undeniable Tour, which begins on April 6.
