LA singer-songwriter and genre-bending artist, Stella Santana has released her new single, “Attention”, the second track taken from her upcoming new EP, Distant. “Attention” seamlessly weaves from an R&B-infused track into an infectious beach-pop-infused production, resulting in a sultry indie-disco vibe as she reminds us not to take others for granted and to prioritize our presence in relationships. The track arrives alongside a captivating video, which showcases Santana against a backdrop of the rolling ocean, adorned in a floor-length fur, all while exuding an air of opulence as she demands our undivided attention. Watch it now below.
Speaking on the single, Santana shares, “It’s about daydreaming. You know how your thoughts accidentally leave the room? When you’re thinking about the person so much that you’re forgetting to be present with them.” She adds, “You may think you’re present, but you’re actually missing the way the sun is hitting those trees.”
Set against an infectious beat and synth line, “Attention” is produced by Ømen (Drake, Beyoncé, and Action Bronson), Kris Keyz, and the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum producer Nico Farmakalidis (NicoTheOwl). Beneath the surface of its sugary and effervescent presentation, the single highlights Stella Santana’s distinctive throaty vocals and introspective lyrics, revealing her ongoing vulnerability as an artist.
“Attention” follows the pop-infused “Highways” and leads to her forthcoming independent EP Distant. The new project delves into the truths that are found within distance and space. Stella continues to embark on a reflective journey exploring the complexities of relationships, self-love, and self-preservation.
Through her captivating music and genuine expressions, Santana compels listeners to pay attention, unveiling her artistic depth and commitment to conveying authentic emotions. She’s reconciling a relationship by looking for equity. Does she have your attention? If not, she’s gone.
