Breakout star Zoe Wees has released her heartfelt new single, “Daddy’s Eyes” today. The 20-year-old wrote the song about her absent father – and she wrote it for those who grew up in similar circumstances. (According to The U.S. Census Bureau, 25% of children live without a father in the home.) Listen to the song now below.
Zoe Wees explains, “My father was never there for my mother and me. I’ve met him once in my life and I realized that my eyes look exactly like his. I don’t wanna cry these tears with my Daddy’s Eyes. I don’t need you, Dad!”
“Daddy’s Eyes” was written with producers Patrick Pyke Salmy and Ricardo Muñoz, who helmed Wees’ debut EP, Golden Wings, which included the RIAA Gold-certified, Top 20 Pop radio hit “Control,” and Nicolas Rebscher. It serves as the follow-up to “Third Wheel,” which was recently remixed by JACK-O.
