Just before kicking off the second leg of her highly-anticipated “One Bad Night Tour” last night in Santa Ana, CA, Hayley Kiyoko released her latest single “Sleepover” and the self-directed official music video, marking her first new track since her label debut EP CITRINE was released in September. Hayley creates a stunning visual for “Sleepover” in which she tells a very personal and bittersweet tale of unrequited love, while providing her fans with an unapologetically honest representation of young queer women. Check out the video HERE.
Read Hayley’s heartfelt Tumblr post about the video below.
“I’ve never truly believed that sexuality defines who you are. I do believe, though, that sexuality helps shape and build who you become. How you act, what you pursue, who you surround yourself with. This music video for “Sleepover” is not a concept or an idea for me. It is my life. It defines a part of who I am today. I grew up a dreamer and found comfort through a safe haven in my head. It’s where I was able to find self-love and feel validated. This music video validates those feelings for me, even if in those moments the girl I fell for was unavailable. I made this video to help validate those fantasies. To create a space for the lovers, dreamers and seekers. Falling in love can be a bittersweet feeling, especially if you know it’ll never be reciprocated. I think we can all relate to that.”
At the end of 2016, singer/songwriter/actress/director Hayley Kiyoko celebrated the release of her label debut EP CITRINE by launching her nationwide “One Bad Night Tour.” The completely sold out headline tour saw Hayley performing her new music for her passionate and devoted fans in multiple cities throughout the US. According to Baeble, Hayley “managed to turn a sold out Studio at Webster Hall into an intimate dance party for everyone to feel free in a safe zone.” Hayley rounded out a stellar break out year by publishing a short essay in Paper Mag in which the young artist opens up not only about her journey within the music industry but also how she has come to understand her sexuality. In 2017, Hayley isn’t slowing down her pace – she recently released a remix of her track “Palace” and this week she embarked on her highly-anticipated continuation of the “One Bad Night Tour” which will include performances at SXSW.
Hayley is currently working on her debut album, which will be released later this year.
