Zella Day has released “Radio Silence“, her first new song of 2022. The track – which was written in fall of 2021 – details the experience of a young woman forced to reckon with the choices surrounding an unintended pregnancy. “Radio Silence” was written by Day and Alex Casnoff (Jonathan Wilson, Harriet), and features backing vocals from fellow LA musician Miya Folick. Listen to it now below.
Says Day about the song, “I had life-threatening complications with a pregnancy three years ago, and I can’t even imagine what it would have been like had I not been given the freedom to make my own choices for myself and my body at that time. As Simone de Beauvoir wrote, ‘The body is not a thing, it’s a situation.’ It’s as if the world has turned its back on us at our most vulnerable, when we are faced with a decision that will change our lives forever.”
