"Dark Side" is a song by American singer and songwriter Phoebe Ryan. It was released on February 3, 2017 as the intended lead single off of her forthcoming debut studio album[1] through Columbia Records, though it was later scrapped.[2] The single was written by Ryan along with Elof Loelv and Jason Gill, who have collaborated with artists such as Tove Lo. The track was recorded in Sweden.[3]

Background[edit]

"Dark Side" serves as the first single from Ryan's upcoming debut studio album, which was expected to be released in the fall of 2017.

Composition[edit]

"Dark Side" has been described as an electronic-infused[3] single that contains a "relaxed rhythm feel".[3] Ryan herself described the song's lyrics, stating the track "is about being in love with someone who may not necessarily be the best for you, but you're too deep in it to care. You find the best in them no matter what they do."[4]
