British singer/songwriter Mae Muller has joined forces with Swedish hitmaker NEIKED and platinum-selling rapper Polo G for a euphoric new single called “Better Days.” Out today via Capitol Records, the track is a high-energy pop anthem whose optimistic outlook is undeniably catchy.
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 Gdrops in for a heart-on-sleeve verse that perfectly amplifies the track’s hopeful mood.
“Me and NEIKED have been sitting on this song for so long — I can’t believe it’s out everywhere, and with Polo G!” says Mae. “I’m such a big fan of him, so to work together was such a dream. I want people to listen to this song and feel happy, to dance, to sing, and just enjoy life. We’ve earned that.”
NEIKED adds: “I feel privileged to work with amazing artists like Mae Muller and Polo G. Two great people, and together we've created something special! I have been working hard on my upcoming music this year and now is a perfect time to finally share the first piece of the NEIKED puzzle. ‘Better Days’ is like a gracefully cooked palak paneer.”
“Better Days” 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.
