With more than 50K Spotify streams and three international iTunes hits in just four months (including a Top 5 in South Africa and a Top 50 in the UK!), 17-year-old singer-songwriter Hannyta’s music career is off to a fantastic start. The electro-pop starlet with folk tendencies also lights up airwaves on both sides of the Atlantic. Her first two singles, “Wildflower” and “Make It Through The Night,” have received plenty of press around the globe, making Hannyta one of the hottest young artists to come out of Scotland in decades.
On March 8th, International Women’s Day, Hannyta is releasing her most ambitious track to date, the aptly titled “17.” Written by the husband-and-wife team of Donna Nolan Wilson and Greg Wilson, “17” was a perfect fit for the youthful artist, both in lyric and style. The empowering theme of the song will resonate as a young women’s anthem. To put a twist on things, Hannyta and her producer recorded three versions of the single: a country-flavored “radio edit;” a Gypsy Kings-inspired remix; and an EDM “Boombox” remix. Videos are also being released to accompany the mixes.
