Maya Delilah has released ‘Silver Lining’, a stirring new summer single out today via Blue Note/Capitol. “‘Silver Lining’ is a bittersweet love song about the contradicting sides of a love interest and weighing up the good vs. the bad,” says Maya. “As the first single of a really exciting new project, it’s introducing a new world of sound for me with elements of acoustic pop that I haven’t explored before.”
‘Silver Lining’ was produced by Doug Schadt who is best known for his work on Maggie Rogers’ EP Now That The Light Is Fading and her breakthrough hit ‘Alaska’. It follows Maya’s previous single ‘Pretty Face’, a soulful pop-rock slow jam that turned a disappointing relationship into an amusing and irrepressible kiss-off showcasing Maya’s delightfully pointed sense of humour and impressive guitar chops. Maya made a memorable appearance on the 2022 collection Blue Note Re:imagined II where she put her own distinct twist on Cassandra Wilson’s cover of Neil Young’s ‘Harvest Moon’.
Maya Delilah is a 23-year-old singer-songwriter and guitarist from North London, Maya attended the prestigious BRIT School whose alumni include Adele, Amy Winehouse, and FKA twigs, among many others. While building up a devoted following on Tik Tok and Instagram where she gained notice for her incredible guitar abilities, Maya started self-releasing music in 2020 and has already racked up more than 40 million streams of fan favourites including ‘Breakup Season’, ‘Tangerine Dream’, and ‘Moonflower’.
