d4vd has shared a new single, ‘Notes From A Wrist’ – listen to the emotional track below.
‘Notes From A Wrist’ and its accompanying music video were made available today (August 18), and sees the Houston-based singer-songwriter tackle themes of depression, unstable home environments and more.
“I wrote ‘Notes From A Wrist’ about a childhood friend that struggled with depression,” d4vd said of the track via a press statement. “It describes the pain experienced in an unstable home and something a lot of people in my generation experience and can relate to. The sonics are very stripped back, and the vocals almost sound like a looming voice in your head.”
The music video for ‘Notes From A Wrist’ – directed by Erik Rojas – sees d4vd relive the darkest moments of his life as he reminisces about a lost love. Watch the music video below.
The track is the first to be released from the young musician’s newly announced EP, ‘The Lost Petals’. The five-track project is due for release on September 8 via Darkroom/Interscope. You can now pre-save the EP here.

Following d4vd’s christening of The Cover, NME attended the star’s headlining concert at the Islington Assembly Hall on May 30. NME‘s Liberty Dunworth wrote in a four-star review of the performance: “It comes as no surprise how the genre-bending musician has resonated with listeners worldwide. Confidently striding around the stage as if it were his second home (this is only his second-ever show in the capital), part of d4vd’s charm comes from his ease when it comes to poking fun with his audience.”
