Veteran pop singer Taylor Dayne fulfills a vital need to dance on her new electro-pop anthem “Live Without,” premiering exclusively on Billboard today (May 9).

The dance-pop icon marks 30 years in the music industry with a song that feels just as fresh and boundary-pushing as her Hot 100 chart-topping smash “Love Will Lead You Back” that started it all. The singer continues to demonstrate her versatility on a track that blends the propulsive punch of modern dance music and tempered strength of a vocal pop track.

Dayne nods to the various sounds within the tune, telling Billboard, “My new single ‘Live Without’ is a great mix of classic and contemporary influence.”

The electronic dance flourishes push the track over an exuberant edge thanks to Los Angeles-based producer Avedon, who has cut his teeth with the likes of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Trippie Redd. The production allows her vocal power to shine without losing its flare in a seamless collaboration that Dayne says she “loved.”

Dayne has been busy for most of 2019 with an extensive tour for her memoir Tell It to My Heart: How I Lost My S#*T, Conquered My Fear, and Found My Voice that was released in February. Despite her recent journey into her past, “Live Without” gives an exciting peek into the future of the unstoppable force of Taylor Dayne.
