Michigan-born singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Hayd releases his brand-new single entitled “Lost” along with an accompanying visualizer. The somber song was created during an extremely low time in Hayd’s life where he felt isolated and alone. The piano-driven track builds with elements of strings and was written in hopes of connecting with anyone experiencing those same feelings. “Lost” comes fresh off the heels of Hayd’s previous single “Don’t Go, Don’t Leave”, his recently wrapped U.S. tour in support of fellow singer-songwriter Sara Kays, and the resurgent success of his earlier single “Head In The Clouds” in Asia, for which it amassed over 332 million streams in the region alone. Hayd’s “Lost” is available now at all digital retail providers via Interscope Records.

Hayd says about the track, "I moved to Los Angeles earlier this year and it was the first time in my life I felt completely alone. I was away from my family, my home, my friends... It was a dark time and I wrote ‘Lost’ at one of my lowest points. It's really just a plea for help and I hope that the song can be a light and an anthem for anyone who feels utterly alone."
Every song allows Hayd to pen another page of his own story. Much like an author, the Michigan-born singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer crystallizes life’s most important moments with unfiltered candor set to a warm soundtrack of sparse piano and guitar. To bring this vision to life, Hayd watched hundreds of hours of YouTube production tutorials and immersed himself in recording as a kid. While enrolled in a local Michigan community college, he continued to write and produce out of his bedroom. Fashioning a vivid and vibrant signature style, he received early support from influential curator 7Clouds and independent label and distributor Proximity. His 2019 debut single “Vacant Eyes” broke the million-stream mark followed by fan favorites “Superhero” at over 17.5 million Spotify streams and “Suffocate” at over 18.3 million Spotify streams. After snippets went viral, his 2020 single “Changes”, which was written and produced entirely by Hayd, has racked up over 246.6 million streams worldwide and set the stage for more. Since then, he has put out his debut Changes – EP, which is a collection of songs inspired by personal experiences and is a culmination of Hayd’s signature mellow style driven by brutally honest and emotional lyrics, raw vocals, and accompanied by a soft and simple production. The EP includes previously released tracks “Closure”( which approached 10 million views on TikTok pre-release), “Airplane Mode”, “Changes”, “Head In The Clouds, “The Idea of You”, and “Faces”.
