Released today via Krewella's own Mixed Kids Records, "Never Been Hurt" is a love-inspired anthem complete with a four-on-the-floor beat and a thick bassline. Pitched vocal chops and sultry lyrical elements swirl with a hypnotic punch in the track: "Touch me like heaven is real," it begins before an eventual closing verse—courtesy of BEAUZ—adds depth and edge.

"The inspiration comes from the feeling of the body and heart slowly opening its doors again after being calloused by the pain of love," Krewella said in a joint press statement. "Surrendering to intimacy is a leap of faith, and in a way, memories of past loss or trauma become erased when we are ready to experience love again in its pure innocence."
