American actress and singer Hailee Seinfeld has released her new single titled, “Coast.”
Known for her acting versatility and musical prowess, Hailee Steinfeld is the recipient of various accolades, including a Peabody Award, a Critics’ Choice Movie Award, a Billboard Music Award, and nominations for an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, a Golden Globe Award, three Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and a Screen Actors Guild Award.
When making music, Steinfeld explained in interview for Interview that, “With [my] music, I feel like I get to be myself, tell my own story, and take my life experiences and not put them into another story but into my own words.” She went on to say that “music is such a big influence in [her] acting” and that the two “entwine”. Variety writer Natalie Weiner stated that Steinfeld has long been injecting “some vague notion of female empowerment… into her music. Self-love is a common theme Steinfeld has looked at within her music.
Steinfeld herself has stated that she hopes to be remembered as “an artist that truly cared about the art”. She went on to note the “differences between working on a film set and in a studio are multiple” and stated that “she loves the freedom of making music”.
In July 2015, Steinfeld and singer Shawn Mendes released an acoustic version of Mendes’ single, “Stitches”. The following month, Steinfeld released her debut single, “Love Myself”, with Republic Records. The song garnered media attention for its empowering message as well as suggestive lyrics that led media outlets to dub the song an “ode to masturbation”.
Steinfeld’s debut extended play, Haiz (a nickname used by her fans), was released in November 2015. Haiz was produced by Mattman & Robin and features co-writers Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter. The EP was released to generally positive reviews.
In February 2016, Steinfeld released a remixed version of “Rock Bottom”, as the second single featuring American funk pop band DNCE.

In September 2016, Steinfeld played the lead role in The Edge of Seventeen, a coming-of-age comedy co-starring Blake Jenner, Woody Harrelson and Kyra Sedgwick, and written and directed by Kelly Fremon Craig. The film was released on November 18, 2016, to positive reviews; Steinfeld’s performance was praised and earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination.
