Hailee Steinfeld has shared new reflective track ‘Wrong Direction’, penned by the singer alongside Lowell, Skyler Stonestreet and KOZ who also produced the song.
The heartfelt ballad is the first new music to come from the multi-platinum recording artist since the release of ‘Afterlife (Dickinson’) last autumn. The single features in the critically acclaimed Apple TV+ series Dickinson, which saw the singer and Academy Award nominated actress star as young poet Emily Dickinson in her teen years.
‘Wrong Direction’ demonstrates Hailee’s newfound fearlessness when it comes to her songwriting and gives fans a taste of what’s to come. Discussing her inspiration behind the song with Zane Lowe she commented, “I’ve learned how easy it is to fall in love with the idea of falling in love and more importantly how hard it can be to accept the reality of losing yourself in someone else’s version of the word.”
