The City That Never Sleeps

Annabel Hailey took us to ‘The City That Never Sleeps’ in her latest nostalgic pop hit

The jazz-pop siren, Annabel Hailey, has proven why a million Spotify streams came to her with ease after she released her latest evocative world music earworm, The City That Never Sleeps.

In a superficial world, it is hard to find the real ones who desperately seek phenomena that stir the soul; behind the luxe cinematic production of The City That Never Sleeps, there are ample affirmations written into the gentrification-mourning lyricism to establish Hailey as a unique icon of soulful autonomy.

The Finland-born, NY and Amsterdam-based singer-songwriter exudes an effortlessly natural grace as she projects her distinctively unparalleled vocal harmonies into the mic over the trickling keys, mellifluous guitars and smooth sax lines. If you can’t remember the last time you felt aurally awakened, hit play and remind yourself.

The City That Never Sleeps is now available to stream on Spotify.
