British singer/songwriter Mae Muller, Swedish hitmaker NEIKED and platinum-selling rapper Polo G premiere the video for their euphoric new single “Better Days.”
Directed by Tom Dream (Gucci, Arlo Parks, Celeste) the video features all three artists living in a retro world with Mae Muller taking center stage of the narrative. Produced by NEIKED, “Better Days” delivers a dance-ready collision of radiant horns, glittering synth, and pulse-pounding beats — an irresistible setting for Mae’s lush and lovely vocal work. As she voices her longing for a brighter future, Polo G drops in for a heart-on-sleeve verse that perfectly amplifies the track’s hopeful mood.
Speaking about the collaboration and the new video NEIKED exclaimed “'BETTER DAYS’ - When I met with Tom Dream I knew he’d be able to make something great - and this is really what that is, something great. A big shout out to Mae and Polo G for putting on a sick performance too. I have been working hard on my upcoming music this year & now is a perfect time to finally share the first piece of the NEIKED puzzle.”
Mae Muller continued “This is my favourite video I’ve done so far!! The pastel colours, to the set design, to the hair and make up, I am literally quite obsessed with it. I feel like me, NEIKED and Polo G are all such different characters but it makes it that much more magical! I hope you love it as much as I do <3”
Released in September, “Better Days” has already amassed over one million streams and arrives as the latest in a series of exciting collaborations from Mae, including tracks like “When You’re Out” (a June release created with chart-topping British duo Billen Ted). Last year, Mae made waves with her much-acclaimed debut EP no one else, not even you, an eight-track project built on her fearlessly honest yet free-spirited approach to songwriting. Made with producers/co-writers like Rick Nowels (Madonna, Lana Del Rey), Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Alicia Keys), Skyler Stonestreet (Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa), and Kenny Beats (FKA twigs, Ed Sheeran), the EP brings Mae’s raw vulnerability to an immaculately composed but unpredictable brand of pop music.
