Since 2015, Hayden Day, better known as GYYPS or Gypsy Burns, has built a solid foundation as one of the only few artists repping the 818, amassing over 80 million global streams to date. He has supported and co-headlined tours, performing for crowds in venues and at festivals across the US and Canada, including Summerfest and Outside Lands.
Having lived through a rough childhood surrounded by drug addiction and violence in and around the home, music has helped GYYPS share his life stories. With every project, it’s become very easy to see his perspective as a young kid understanding manhood and the responsibilities that come with it, expressing self-empowerment, awareness but also free spiritedness, problems with relationships, drug addiction, and the “rate race” of social/financial mobility. GYYPS plans to leave his impact over time through classic albums showcasing talent, real impactful messages, confidence, and a “can’t stop, won’t stop” attitude.
GYYPS is on fire with his new track, “Careless.” The intro feels like a fake-out with the more soca-inspired beat, as it’s followed by a more fast-paced beat featuring a constant hi-hat and rhythmic vocals. The hook is catchy and full of pleasant surprises. This is a certified bop, check it out below.
