GLORY DAYS comes out on Friyay!

"Glory Days" is an uplifting performance that plays up a theme of worrying less about making a mistake and doing more to make life fulfilling.

"It's OK to get a little irresponsible 'cause we're making up the blueprint as we go/Yeah we're on our way to the glory days/It's OK to live a little bit of life you see 'cause tomorrow isn't guarantee/Yeah we're on our way to the glory days," Kiyoko sings over Sweater's soaring production. 

"'Glory Days' is super special to me, I’ve never made a song quite like it before," Sweater Beats told Complex via email. "I think this song bridges my SoundCloud roots into the pop world. And I’m so glad I got to work with Hayley Kiyoko and turn it into a smash. We’re coming out swingin’ representing for Asians!"
