British pop sensation Mae Muller returns with her fierce and euphoric new single “I Wrote A Song” and its accompanying video — go HERE to listen, and check out the video HERE. Her first new music in 2023, “I Wrote A Song” marks the start of a dynamic new era for the North London-bred singer/songwriter — a strong-minded and irresistibly magnetic artist whose past triumphs include the platinum-certified smash hit “Better Days” (a chart-topping 2021 collaboration with NEIKED and Polo G). As announced earlier today by the BBC, Mae Muller will be representing the United Kingdom at the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, set to be held in Liverpool on behalf of Ukraine, in May 2023 with ‘I Wrote A Song’.

On “I Wrote A Song,” Muller brings her beguiling vocals to a dance-pop anthem that speaks to the pure magic of turning pain into power. Co-written with Karen Poole (Kylie Minogue, David Guetta, Galantis) and Lewis Thompson(Anne-Marie, Little Mix, Steve Aoki), the track opens on a gut-punch of a lyric that perfectly showcases the strength and full-force personality of Muller’s songwriting (“When you said you were leaving/To work on your mental health/You didn’t mention the cheating/You kept that one to yourself”). “I Wrote A Song” ultimately builds to a sublime intensity as Muller celebrates the thrill of fully owning her story and finding catharsis through creation.

Says Muller, “‘I Wrote A Song’ is a track I wrote after the fallout from a relationship. I was hurt and also a little angry, so I thought, where can I put this negative energy and make something positive out of it? The song is less about revenge and more about empowering yourself. While I was recording the song, I envisioned me and my girls dancing to it on a Saturday night, and that’s exactly what I want people to do! To dance, sing, let go, and feel empowered after listening.”

Directed by AB/CD/CD (a duo known for their work with artists like Lily Allen, Franz Ferdinand, and Kasabian), the video for “I Wrote A Song” heightens the track’s carefree energy with a bright and vibrant ’90s aesthetic. Through some ingenious use of fantastically detailed miniatures sets, the visual follows Muller as she bounces back from a breakup by literally stomping all over any lingering memories of her ex. Intercut with tongue-in-cheek choreography featuring Muller and a troupe of backup dancers, the video fuses magical realism and true-to-life emotion to wild and glorious effect.

 “I Wrote A Song” follows Muller’s late-2022 single “I Just Came To Dance” — a gorgeous piece of pop escapism that premiered alongside its eye-popping video. Praised by outlets like Paper (“Unapologetic, self-assured and fiercely independent”), Nylon (“Sound the horns because a new queen is here”), Fader, (“London singer Mae Muller rules”), and GQ (“Mae Muller's witty and brutally honest lyrics set her apart from her peers”), Muller made her Capitol Records debut with no one else, not even you: an eight-track project featuring standouts like “Dependent” (named one of Billboard's 30 Best Pop Songs of 2020). Following Muller’s 2022 sold-out headline tour with stops at such iconic venues as London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town, she is now at work on more new music revealing her singular mix of larger-than-life personality and soul-baring sensitivity.
