“Hideaway” is a hook-laden song recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Kiesza for her forthcoming debut album Sound of a Woman. It was co-written by Kiesza in collaboration with its producer Rami Samir Afuni. Recorded in the summer of 2013 in New York City, “Hideaway” was finished within the timespace of 90 minutes and honed its musical inspiration from Kiesza and Afuni’s passion for 1990s dance music.
The song was released as Kiesza’s debut single on April 11, 2014 through Afuni’s independent label Lokal Legend, following the single’s premiere on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show on January 24, 2014. Both the song and its accompanying music video have been met with general acclaim from contemporary music critics. “Hideaway” topped the UK Singles Chart upon release, selling over 136,000 copies in its first week, becoming the third-fastest selling single of 2014 in the United Kingdom.
