Dreamy alt-pop songstress Clara Mae will be releasing her latest single, ‘Missing You Sucks on the 19th of November via Universal Music Sweden. The single will be accompanied by a heartbreaking video and follows the release of her hit song ‘Crash’ which was also accompanied by a classic lyric video. The single was written in collaboration with Johan Lindbrandt, Georgia Ku and Clara Mae herself while Kevin Grainger (known for working with Avicii, David Guetta and Craig David) stepped forward to assist with mixing and mastering.
Speaking of ‘Missing You Sucks’, Clara Mae tells us: “My latest single is about trying to get out of the grief and hopelessness a person feels after a breakup. You try everything to get over it but wherever you go or whatever you do, you’re hit with reminders of the person and end with that awful missing feeling. In the end, you want nothing more than to feel good again but it can take time, and missing someone like that can really suck.”
Clara Mae studied jazz vocals and piano in her small town of Gävle, Sweden where she grew up. Later, she would move to Stockholm. The singer has firmly established herself in the industry by co-writing with big names such as David Guetta, Tiesto and Martin Jensen as well as featuring in songs by the likes of R3HAB and Frank Walker, amongst others. While creating her own music, Clara Mae calls upon the likes of Holly Humberstone, Troye Sivan and Kacey Musgraves for inspiration. In turn, her sound calls to mind the contemporary stylings of Halsey, Tove Lo, Sigrid and Astrid S.
Clara Mae is boldly honest with her latest single, exploring heartbreak and the way your thoughts eat away at the mind during a quiet moment of memory. The songstress layers light vocals and delicate rhythms in place, finding a compromise in the beauty of the music and the sombre thoughts driving her to create.
The singer has reached #21 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and featured in well-known publications such as Wonderland Magazine, Refinery 29, FLAUNT, Pop Buzz, EDM.com, Pop Crush, Magnetic Magazine, American Songwriter, and Ones To Watch to name a few. Clara Mae’s talents have been further recognized on numerous streaming platforms, with her music featured on well-known channels such as Trap Nation, Ultra Music, 7clouds, Chill Nation and Cloudx Music amongst others, contributing to her impressive play count of over 600 million globally. The singer would go on to tour in the US and Canada with Ella Vos as well as tour Europe with Canadian singer Carlie Hanson.
