Indiefolk hitmaker David Kushner brengt vandaag zijn nieuwe single Dead Man met bijbehorende video uit. Op alle platformen bij elkaar heeft Kushner bijna één miljard streams verzameld op enkel zijn single Daylight.  Deze jonge man met zware stem heeft nauwelijks de tijd gehad om stil te staan bij de groei van zijn carrière.

Kushner scoorde namelijk vorig jaar al wereldwijde hits met Miserable Man en Mr. Forgettable. Zijn emotioneel geladen nummers raakten meteen een gevoelige snaar bij luisteraars over de hele wereld. Dit zorgde voor miljoenen streams in minder dan één jaar tijd.

Dead Man is gebaseerd op persoonlijke ervaringen van de Amerikaanse zanger en staat voor zijn eigen reis door een gecompliceerde relatie. In het nummer werpt de singer-songwriter een rauwe blik op zijn eigen worstelingen en groei.


David Kushner, the recently-certified platinum indie folk hitmaker, bares his soul in a new song and video: Dead Man. Drawing from personal experiences, the metaphor of calloused hands represents his own journey through a tumultuous relationship. The song provides a raw and intimate window into Kushner’s struggles and growth.

The new song comes out as Kushner’s hit single Daylight reaches one billion total streams across all platforms. It has also achieved RIAA Platinum certification in the US and sat on the Billboard Hot 100 for 22 straight weeks since its release. He recently commemorated the success of the long-teased single with the release of Daylight (Reimagined), which contains five new versions of the song, including a cinematic version and an acoustic version.

Kushner is currently busy in the heart of his Daylight Tour 2.0, which has seen him build on the success of his first headline tour and give fans in many parts of the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, their first opportunity to see him. For tickets and more information visit

Originally from the suburbs of Chicago and currently based in Los Angeles, Kushner first made waves last year with a pair of worldwide hit singles, Miserable Man (hailed by Rolling Stone as “an acoustic ballad that’s as sparse as a one-horse town”) and Mr. Forgettable, both found on his debut EP, Footprints I Found. His emotionally charged songs touched an immediate chord in listeners around the globe, earning featured placement on the coveted Spotify “Roots Rising” playlist while quickly racking up more than 700M streams in under one year. When the long-teased single “Daylight” finally dropped, Kushner’s career kicked into an even higher gear. The song has been streamed 1 billion times and counting, launching David into a U.S. Daylight Tour and European tour dates with Lewis Capaldi.
