Ahead of the release of her debut album this week, mxmtoon has shared another cut from it.
Her latest track ‘coming of age’ follows recent single ‘victim of nostalgia’, and gets taken from her forthcoming full-length ‘rising’, which is due for release this Friday (20th May).
Speaking of track, Maia has said: “I started focusing on mxmtoon when I was seventeen. Four years have passed since then, and I’ve grown up and changed so much since being the teenager that started all of this. ‘coming of age’ is about the growth I’ve experienced between writing, producing, and personally understanding the individual I know myself to be currently. It’s a strange experience having thousands of people watch you grow up and enter your twenties, and it felt necessary to make a song that simultaneously celebrates the uncertainty of self discovery but can find confidence in growth. My hope is that ‘coming of age’ establishes that mxmtoon is always changing, just as I am myself.”
