Following her breakout role as Billie Holiday in The United States vs. Billie Holiday, Andra Day returns with her new single “Phone Dies.”
Over a silky production, helmed by Anderson .Paak, Day describes a passionate connection that is short-lived due to technology. “I’ll let you feel these vibes until my phone dies,” she sings on the mellifluous tune.
“Phone Dies” arrives nearly two months after Day’s soul-stirring performance on The United States vs. Billie Holiday soundtrack, which featured her original track “Tigress & Tweed” that she co-wrote with Raphael Saadiq.
In other news, Day is up for Best Actress in a Leading Role (The United States vs. Billie Holiday) at the 93rd Academy Awards. She made Golden Globe history in March when she won Best Performance By An Actress In A Motion Picture — Drama. Day became the second Black woman to win in this category (Whoopi Goldberg was the first to win in 1985 for her role as Celie Johnson in The Color Purple.)
