Mae Muller releases her new single ‘I Don’t Want Your Money’ and its accompanying video.
Self-shot in isolation and directed remotely by Sophie Muller [Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Beyoncé], the light-hearted visual sees Mae take us on a colourful virtual journey of different looks, setting the scenes and displaying the emotions that come with having to explain what you do (and don’t!) need from a relationship.
Having co-written the track with Jimmy Napes [Sam Smith, Khalid, Alicia Keys] who also produced it,
‘I Don’t Want Your Money’ is a track with a soft soulful vibe that alludes to a ‘delicate love song’ but is sharply juxtaposed with her fierce lyrics, a distinct reminder of Mae’s status as a self-assured young woman. Speaking on the inspiration behind the track Mae explains,
“I wrote I Don’t Want Your Money just under 2 years ago now, and I’m so happy it’s finally out! I just wanted to show that there are other ways to be treated, rather than just materialistically, especially if you have your own money! I’m financially independent so you have to find other ways to impress me, I don’t need anything else apart from love and affection. Treat me with respect and we’re GOOD.”
Mae’s music is consistently filled with self-assured lyrics accompanied with strong narratives and entwined soulful pop melodies, a style that is steadily cementing her as a spokeswoman of her generation.
