“Closer Than Close” follows on the heels of emerging singer/songwriter NYA’s post-breakup ballad, “The Real You,” which recently hit the Top 20 on the Adult Contemporary Mediabase chart and #26 on the Billboard AC chart.

Produced by four-time Grammy® winning Brian Kennedy (Rihanna, Chris Brown, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson), and co-written by NYA with Kennedy, Grammy® winning Midian Mathers, 3X Platinum Songwriter Dwayne Dialo and Grammy® Nominated Stacy Barthe, the sultry song is a hopeful, feel good expression of loving and longing reminiscent for Nya of her relationship with her Uruguay based husband – and her frequent commutes back and forth from their home there to Los Angeles.

Says NYA, “We were aiming for a retro-soul sound, with cool elements of old and new, an uplifting vibe that makes you feel positive and hopeful in the moment – a powerful desire, but a musical flow that’s not too heavy. As for the cool rap element, I love classic hip-hop, and I love the idea of mixing styles, cadences and rhythms.”

Adds Kennedy, “I had an amazing experience working on the production for ‘Closer Than Close,’ some tracks just hit harder than others – and this is one of them.”

“Closer Than Close” previews NYA’s upcoming EP and full-length album that will include a wide variety of sonic approaches and will lyrically reflect where she is now as a person and artist. Working with Kennedy, Cinelu, four time Grammy® winner James Fauntleroy (Bruno Mars, Chris Brown, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake).
