“Primed to be one the biggest breakout acts this year”


“Here is a very contemporary kind of budding star. d4vd has already cracked the Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot Alternative/Rock charts — though that probably undersells how famous he is”


“d4vd is writing a new kind of love story”


“Don’t let his age fool you. The musician is mature beyond his years (both in the personal and artistic sense). He has a unique ability to make the most inexpressible emotions palpable”


“Loads of star power…melds genres to fit his vision, with a bit of emo, Y2K retro-rock, and classic soul. Let’s keep a close eye on d4vd”


“The sounds he creates – often worlds apart from each other – are an exercise in dramatics, a kind of stagecraft where his imagination dictates the weather, the narrative and emotion of it all”

Petals To Thorns EP (out May 26)

‘Don’t Forget About Me’ is out now, buy/stream here.

Today, 18-year-old genre-bending artist d4vd unveils new track ‘Don’t Forget About Me’, the latest and last offering from his upcoming EP, Petals To Thorns, before its release on May 26 via Darkroom / Interscope.  LISTEN HERE + PRE-SAVE THE EP HERE.

Wounded and pleading, ‘Don’t Forget About Me’ describes in brutal detail the end of a relationship. “I don’t wanna keep crying on your shoulder,” d4vd sings, obsessing over where things went wrong and asking to be remembered—since fading out of memory is too painful. Strings and multi-tracked vocals enrich the otherwise skeletal production, making for a song that’s so vulnerable it’s almost tough to listen to. The track marks the last preview of d4vd’s soon-to-be-released debut EP Petals To Thorns, an introduction and journey into his identity as an artist that’s unable to be boxed into a specific genre.

d4vd’s debut run of headline shows earlier this year as part of The Root Of It All tour sold out immediately, where he performed a cover of Adele’s ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ for triple j’s Like A Version where ‘WORTHLESS‘ peaked at the #2 most played songs on the station this past month. To date, he has amassed almost 70M streams locally and has been ARIA Certified Platinum (‘Romantic Homicide‘) and Gold (‘Here With Me‘). More to come from d4vd in 2023.
