WORLDSOUND/ INGROOVES/ UMG is proud to announce the first single and collaboration between bold singer/songwriter Hayley Sales and multi-talented Hollywood icon Sharon Stone. – “Never Before” out Friday, March 19, 2021.
The duo effortlessly wrote “Never Before” after bonding over their shared experiences of love, loss and vintage music. The result is a timeless song that oozes soul, jazz and classic pop influences with a contemporary reimagined twist.
“I showed up at her house with a handful of nerves and excitement…I’d never done a co-write before and had no idea what to expect or how to even go about it. The second she walked into the room, all that went away. She was so warm and gracious, so absolutely unpretentious and open. Sharon asked me, if one song could explain you to the world, what would it be? At first, I didn’t know. Then I realized …Romance. Romance moves me. Not just in that typical fall in love type of romance, but romance as a way of life…A way of walking, heart all messy and exposed, into everything. With that, we began to write,” says Sales.
“What a pleasure it has been to work with HAYLEY, she is a true artist. She cares more about getting the truth of her art right than anything else. I cannot wait to be there to see her sing this on stage. Maybe even more than hearing on the radio. She is gorgeous, pure, true: the real deal,” Stone says.
