Her second album ‘Moss’ is out next month.

With her second album ‘Moss’ set for release on 23rd September via Mom+Pop, Maya Hawke is sharing new track ‘Sweet Tooth’.

“’Sweet Tooth’ was the last song written for MOSS. The lyrics were written in Atlanta while filming, but Christian [Lee Hutson] and I recorded the first demo in Nashville,” Maya says. “When we finished the first recording session, I felt this eruption of joy and I knew this feeling had to be on the record.”

Accompanied by a video directed by Celine Sutter, Celine notes, “’Sweet Tooth’ was born out of conversations with Maya about the song, the album, and the unique feel of sweetness, cavity, death, and joy. We discussed care, caretaking, and childhood adult friendships. In the edit, we found the deconstructed nature of the dream with the behind-the-scenes footage - as if Maya was participating in the making of, and the theater of, her own funeral. ‘Sweet Tooth’ is a trippy, playful video that embraces the dichotomy of its themes: a joyful and melancholic funeral, a fake dream world with real footage, care and loneliness, sweetness and pain.”
