Take a moment and escape into a world of soulful bliss!
More than a year after previewing the song for fans, Daley has finally released the studio version of his collaboration with Jill Scott, “Until The Pain Is Gone.”
The intoxicating duet is the first single from the UK crooner’s upcoming EP, which follows his acclaimed 2014 debut album, Days + Nights. Everything we love about Daley and Jill is experienced throughout this soul-stirring ballad that plays with our heartstrings in all the right ways.
“Try to see this through my eyes / ‘Cause you’re not the only one confused / In this world where love is prone to lose,” sings Daley. While Jilly from Philly responds to his requests to pursue real love, “Can you convince me? / Change my mind / We can leave all those demon days behind / Cause didn’t I mention, I have nothing but good intentions for you.”
The song hits close to home for Daley, “The song kind of came out of frustration I was feeling in a relationship,” he told Billboard. “The situation was going nowhere because we both weren’t really fully able to admit how we felt about each other and just be honest. And that situation didn’t really work out, but for the purposes of writing this song, I just kind of gave it a happy ending and idealized it a little bit.”
While writing the song, he felt Jill Scott would be the perfect collaborator on the record. “When I was in the studio writing the song, I just had a feeling, and I kept hearing Jill’s voice in the mix when I was writing. It was kind of strange, almost like it was asking for her energy.”
