Steadily building a reputation as the UK’s answer to the great pop/country crossover stars from the US, Maya Lane got 2024 off to a bang with her single ‘Bump Into Me’. Building to a growing list of tastemaker approval, the song saw Maya land her first Radio 1 airplay with multiple Future Pop spins from Mollie King, while she has also just been longlisted from thousands of entrants for Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition. Now Maya builds upon those landmark moments by sharing the follow-up single ‘Heart For A Heart’. Listen HERE.

‘Heart For A Heart’ feels like the missing link between the past and the present; a place where the pop-tinged vulnerability of Kacey Musgraves feels as important an influence as the soulful melancholy of classic Fleetwood Mac. Her vocals radiate both the expressiveness of youth and the elegance of an old-soul as her lyrics imagine targeting a love interest who has scorned her.

Maya Lane says, “Some say revenge is an eye-for-an-eye, but sometimes it feels a little more like a ‘Heart For A Heart’! This is a song that’s been tucked away in my back pocket for a couple of years now and one I’m truly so excited to share. The idea came to me while watching a film, in which the main character sets out to seek revenge on those who’d wronged her. I wrote the song in a couple of hours and it felt so refreshing to be able to dive into a whole other world, create this dramatic, detailed story and run with it. While the storyline of the song is fictional, the message resonates so deeply with emotions that can arise after feeling betrayed, whether that be in a relationship or a friendship.”
