Dana Williams makes a triumphant return with the release of her new single “Silly Words,” out today on Island Records. The song depicts the fear of opening-up in a relationship – if you say those “Silly Words” and tell someone how you really feel, then that love could be lost. Its lovely melody is met with elegant strings as Williams croons “Maybe if I’m the one who leaves you first, you’ll think of me as a pioneer. Don’t make me say those silly words.” Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
“’Silly Words’ is about the fear of admitting love at the beginning of a relationship and the impending doom that something will eventually go wrong. There’s this feeling of anxiety and fear of rejection that being vulnerable brings. It’s about appreciating the person for who they are and hoping for a mutual acceptance, but ultimately being prepared to run from imminent rejection, at any moment.” – Dana Williams
Chosen as one of Idolator’s 40 Artists To Watch In 2020, Dana is definitely gaining attention with her classic yet sultry sound. “Silly Words” follows Dana’s 2019 releases (“Holiday,” “Do No Harm,” and “Hard”) which gained her praise in the likes of VIBE, Refinery 29, Ones To Watch, UPROXX, Earmilk and more.

ABOUT DANA WILLIAMS:
Growing up in L.A. and New York, Williams first began experimenting with songwriting in middle school, often in collaboration with her father: the late David Williams, a rhythm guitarist who performed on such iconic songs as Madonna’s “Like A Prayer,” Stevie Nicks’s “Stand Back,” and Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.” “My dad also produced music, and a lot of times he’d bring home a track and tell me, ‘Write a verse here, a chorus here, another verse here,’” Williams says. “It was just a fun thing we did together, but it taught me how to write.”
Within a year of booking her first show, Williams made her debut with The Lonely One—a 2013 EP whose opening track, “Keep Me Waiting,” earned the distinction of being the only original vocal composition featured in Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-winning film Whiplash. Delivering her sophomore EP Let’s Fall in 2015, she then switched her focus to releasing singles, putting out a track a month for over a year. She also appeared as a featured artist alongside Aminé on Rejjie Snow’s “Egyptian Luvr”—a January 2018 single that’s garnered over 20 million streams on Spotify to date. Later that year, Williams caught the attention of Alex Da Kid, who signed her to KIDinaKORNER and soon set the making of her major label debut in motion.
