HABIT is Byron Shire's Grace Hughes new single, released online tomorrow.

The electronic pop song was co-written, mixed and produced by Jean-Paul Fung (Silverchair, Birds of Tokyo, Client Liaison).

Hughes, 19, said the single was recorded in Sydney in Mr Fung's studio.

"The song itself began while we were sitting having lunch at Balmoral Beach and trying to get warm in the winter sun," she said.

"Jean-Paul is an incredible songwriter and producer and I have two more singles to release in the near future after Habit comes out, which I am really excited about."

The young singer hopes to secure management to assist the release of the next two songs, and is looking at recording an EP.

"I'd also like to film a music video," she said.

"Long term, I hope to produce a live show incorporating both electronic and orchestrated sounds, to tour nationally as well as feature at some music festivals.

"When you're named after Jeff Buckley's debut album, a career in the music industry is inevitable."

Hughes debuted in the Australian iTunes Charts with her acoustic EP Straight Lines in 2014.
