The duo effortlessly wrote "Never Before" after bonding over their shared experiences of love, loss and vintage music. The result is a timeless song that oozes soul, jazz and classic pop influences with a contemporary reimagined twist.
"Never Before", the romantically cinematic ballad highlights Sales' breathtakingly impassioned vocals combined with Sharon Stone's timeless, sincere and captivating storytelling.
"I showed up at her house with a handful of nerves and excitement…I’d never done a co-write before and had no idea what to expect or how to even go about it. The second she walked into the room, all that went away. She was so warm and gracious, so absolutely unpretentious and open. Sharon asked me, if one song could explain you to the world, what would it be? At first, I didn’t know. Then I realized …Romance. Romance moves me. Not just in that typical fall in love type of romance, but romance as a way of life…A way of walking, heart all messy and exposed, into everything. With that, we began to write." - Hayley Sales
“What a pleasure it has been to work with HAYLEY, she is a true artist. She cares more about getting the truth of her art right than anything else. I cannot wait to be there to see her sing this on stage. Maybe even more than hearing on the radio. She is gorgeous, pure, true: the real deal.” - Sharon Stone
Hearing her classic voice for the first time, you can tell she has paved her own way; through the velvety hints of Motown and the bold romance of early jazz, the music of Hayley Sales reimagines the vintage sounds of the 1950s and 60s. A true artist, she has had to take the long way; carefully crafting her songs to match the unabashed honesty of a born performer. It’s as if you’re peering into the most intimate corners of her heart, unguarded. There’s a romantic elegance to her that is hard to come by in 2021.
