Today, Stella Donnelly unveils her new single/video, “How Was Your Day?,” from her forthcoming album Flood, out August 26th on Secretly Canadian.

“How Was Your Day?” is quintessential Stella Donnelly – a buoyant track with deadpan vocals harkening back to her 2019 breakthrough debut album, Beware of the Dogs. “Level-headedness has made way for a disastrous love,” she drops casually. “I know it, you know it.” Of the track, Donnelly says: “This is my attempt at building a song out of a very specific dynamic between two monogamously involved people. 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.”

Directed by Nick Mckk and Claire Giuffre, the “How Was Your Day?” accompanying video is playfully macabre, juxtaposing shots of soccer games and car wrecks to uncanny effect. “This video does a really good job of portraying how annoying I am!,” Donnelly says. “We shot it from opposite sides of the world which was a little bit stressful but a lot of fun.”

Later this fall, Donnelly will embark on a world tour.
