Self-described as sounding like what “would have happened if Sheryl Crow ever had to work in a TK Maxx”…

Back with another Americana-tinged pop gem, CMAT has shared new single ‘2 Wrecked 2 Care’, described in her own words as sounding like what “would have happened if Sheryl Crow ever had to work in a TK Maxx”.

“I wrote it during a particularly bad period for my sleeping pattern,” she explains. “It’s a song about not being able to fall asleep, and anxiety/stress-related insomnia, something I have suffered from for years. I think I developed it during years of low-paying, irregular shift work..

“I’m fascinated by the Jekyll and Hyde effect of how a sliding scale of a lack of sleep completely changes your mood, and how you present yourself as a person. Does a regular lack of sleep force you to evolve into a different person entirely? Different thoughts? Different dreams? Different life than the one you would have if you had the freedom to live healthily? I like to think that ‘2 Wrecked 2 Care’ is the song that would have happened if Sheryl Crow ever had to work in a TK Maxx.”
