Australian singer-songwriter MAYA has announced her new thought-provoking single, What After Now, which is an earnest pledge to live in each passing moment.
MAYA comments on her generation’s obsession with following the now. The track itself is a powerful, driving, irresistible jam and overflowing with attitude.
“What After Now is about living in the moment, loving who you are and being who you love,” MAYA says.
“It was inspired by all the times I have been challenged by my future, but have just tried to enjoy the present. I wanted people to remember that our future may be unknown and daunting, but if you can just get through each second in the now, you don’t have to worry about what’s to come. It is inspired by everyone around me and the way the new generations are always trying to be somewhere else.”
The video clip has also now been uploaded on YouTube and it features MAYA and her sisters lounging luxuriously, projecting infinite wisdom and owning the message the song portrays with courage and pride.
“The video clip was inspired by my childhood love of dressing up. When I was a kid I was never happy in my own skin, so I would dress up to make myself feel like a different person.”
“I asked my beautiful sisters to join me as I want to create imagery that entrances people. I want people to hear the lyrics and understand the meaning while also having fun with it.”
MAYA will be performing a string of shows to celebrate the release. She’ll be performing in Melbourne at Paris Cat on March 24, The Rising Sun on April 1 and The Toff In Town on April 25.
“Performing is my favourite aspect of all. I love to use projections, dancers and art to bring each show to an original light. I will always try and speak to my audience in a new way each time, sharing not just my story but my soul.”
What After Now is set for release on March 24.
