Hailee Steinfeld + Anderson .Paak Release ‘Coast’: Look + Listen

Back with her first new music in two years, Hailee Steinfeld returns to the fray with ‘Coast,’ a vibey, electric guitar-backed single featuring Anderson .Paak.

About her new single Steinfeld stated “This song is deeply personal to me and was influenced by my California roots and the music I grew up listening to with my family.” Teasing the project last week, Hailee wrote to her fans: “If you’ve been with me for a while you know this has been a long time coming. If you’re new here… I’m about to release my first song in over a year.”

On the summer-themed song, she sings, “You the wave upon my ocean/pounding rhythm and motion/it’s full moon kinda night yeah/I don’t wanna go home yet” and on his verse, .Paak raps, “You love on the screen and the stage/I wanna fit in between your legs/Let’s pick a day/Everything can wait.”

Concerning the collaboration with Anderson, whom she’s “lucky to call a friend”, the songstress said that that he was the “only artist I envisioned collaborating with on this track.” “Knowing he loved the song enough to lend his genius to it is absolutely surreal, and I am forever grateful to have his support.” “This is only the beginning.”

Taking to her Instagram account, Hailee stated that the song’s release is the start of a “new chapter.” She last released her EP Half Written Story in 2020, which features songs like “I Love You’s,” “Your Name Hurts,” and “Wrong Direction.” During the time, she was starring as Emily Dickinson in Dickinson, also voices Vi in Arcane, and she also took on the role of Hawkeye in the miniseries of the same name last year.

Anderson .Paak, recently joined Maxo Kream on “The Vision” and Dr. Dre on “The Scenic Route” and “ETA” and is also performing at his Las Vegas residency as part of Silk Sonic, alongside Bruno Mars.
