Singer Lyn Lapid returns with new anthemic single “Infinite”

Following recent co-signs from Billie Eilish, BTS’ Jungkook, and Sabrina Carpenter, singer/songwriter Lyn Lapid is back with her new feel-good single, “Infinite”—listen HERE!

The euphoric song features the 18-year-old’s signature ethereal vocals layered over bouncy guitar plucks. Inspired by the iconic “And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite” final scene in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Lyn sings, “Dancin’ in the rain 3am, Thinkin’ that we might be dreaming, Knowin’ that it’s in this moment, We are infinite.”

Of the meaning behind “Infinite,” she says, “I feel like there’s so much pressure not to waste your teenage years as you so often hear that they will be the best years of your life. I wrote ‘Infinite’ more so as a question to myself, asking if I was wasting my own youth. The song begins with me simply asking how to be you yourself, because in a time where social media romanticizes youth, independence, and telling you what you should and shouldn’t be, it can be difficult to figure yourself out.”

She continues, “The chorus then represents what you see on social media; friends going on adventures, driving super fast on the highway, and dancing in the rain at 3 a.m., and how what you see on social media can make you feel like you’re ‘missing out’ if you’re not doing the same things. I took the ending line of the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower, ‘And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite,’ and made it the last line of the chorus to illuminate that sense of euphoria.”

“The second verse is about feeling hesitant or afraid to let go and live as the ‘main character’ after being used to living a quiet and complacent life for so long. But then I end the song saying how I will try to start living less afraid and ‘vigilantly in time,’ which I feel a bunch of people will resonate with. I wanted to end the song on a positive note, encouraging people to live their own lives, in whatever way that means for them,” she says.

“Infinite” follows Lyn’s debut singles, “Itsy Bitsy” and “Producer Man,” as well as her recently-released cover of Sarah McLachlan’s “When She Loved Me.” In addition to critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, E! Online, Refinery29, Buzzfeed, and more, Lyn recently found fans in Billie Eilish (who commented “this is so beautiful” on her cover of “Your Power”), Jungkook from BTS (who added “Producer Man” to his “Favorite Tracks” playlist on Spotify), and Sabrina Carpenter (who commented on her TikTok teasing “Infinite”). With only three released songs in her catalogue, Lyn has already amassed over 53 million global streams to date.

Lyn Lapid has affirmed herself as a star on the rise for 2021. Her 2020 debut single, “Producer Man,” emerged as “the most-viewed unreleased demo on a TikTok video in 2020. The song morphed from a viral TikTok clip into a phenomenon, as the original demo eclipsed over 70 million views and 8 million likes on the app. To date, the official release—produced by Dan Nigro [Olivia Rodrigo, Conan Gray, Carly Rae Jepsen, Lewis Capaldi, Sky Ferreira, Empress Of]—has racked up over 44 million global streams and 6 million YouTube views. Attracting widespread tastemaker praise, Rolling Stone claimed, “The fully produced version evokes early Nineties coffee-house soul gussied up with modern drum programming and ghostly electronic harmonies, while Idolator rightfully predicted it “is certain to make big waves.

SZA’s Triumphant Moment, How the Songwriters Hall Of Fame Award Validated Her Journey

“As an artist, I’ve been a lot of different people. I’ve been 200 pounds; I’ve been 130 pounds. I’ve been someone who doesn’t dance at all on stage to someone who is dancing and trying their best and I think, ‘Oh man, I struggle with the artist thing,’ but writing was where I felt like a person, and I had value and showed that I was smart. It was beyond ‘Am I pretty? Am I liked?’ and that meant everything to me. It made me feel like a person that was doing something worth something. Basically, receiving this award validates my entire career… Thank you for seeing me,” she said.

The Hal David Starlight Award has been awarded to numerous iconic artists, including John Legend, Ne-Yo, Drake, Lil Nas X, and Post Malone. “This is such an exciting time for songwriters and music. Phenomenal artists like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift are pushing the envelope of what success looks like but who could argue that the last two years belong to SZA,” SHOF Chairman Nile Rodgers said. “Incredible songwriting, incredible performances, incredible artistry. She so deserves to be the 2024 recipient of the Hal David Starlight Award!”
