21-year-old New Jersey native Nessa Barrett shares "girl in new york" as her final release of the year.

While discussing the new track, Barrett says, “I wrote this song about a guy who I was in the very early stages of getting to know. He had told me that he was taking a trip to New York and ghosted me.” That inspired a narrative in her mind. "It's about a woman who he met and became obsessed with during his trip, therefore forgetting about me completely. It was delusional and a little psychotic of me, but I’m just grateful that it led to the creation of ‘girl in new york.’”

“girl in new york” follows closely after the release of Nessa’s heartfelt single “club heaven” and her pulse-pounding collaboration with Whethan — “sick of myself.” Earlier this year, she released her celebrated hell is teenage girl EP,

"girl in new york" is out now via Warner Records.
