“This is my attempt at building a song out of a very specific dynamic between two monogamously involved people,” Donnelly said of ‘How Was Your Day?’ in a statement. “The verses are just excerpts from real conversations, fragments of what two people talk about when they both know they need to have a real talk but neither wants to be the one to bring it up. This song came out of lockdown and seeing a lot of friends break up or get married.
The new single comes paired with a video directed by Nick Mckk and Claire Giuffre. “This video does a really good job of portraying how annoying I am!” Donnelly added. “We shot it from opposite sides of the world which was a little bit stressful but a lot of fun.”
Flood is due out August 26 via Secretly Canadian.
