Maya Hawke – Missing Out

Maya Hawke by Trevor Tweeten

Maya Hawke has released “Missing Out,” the first single from her upcoming album, Chaos Angel, to be released May 31st via Mom+Pop. Chaos Angel is the talented multi-hyphenate’s third album and follows the success of lauded sophomore full-length, Moss,  which spawned a viral hit in lead single “Thérèse”.  With production helmed by Moss co-songwriter and collaborator Christian Lee Hutson, and featuring contributions by longstanding collaborators Benjamin Lazar Davis and Will Graefe, Chaos Angel is a deeply beautiful, meditative album about falling in love, fucking it up, and getting back up again.

Still only 25 years old, Maya has received global acclaim for her exquisite songwriting and witty, narrative lyricism. “Missing Out” is a wry yet poignant song derived from a semester Maya spent living near her brother’s college campus and partying with his classmates, a belated attempt at the formative college experience she never personally had. The track comes replete with a science-fiction influenced video directed by Alex Ross Perry. 

Of the song’s storyline, Maya says, “There was actually a girl who went to Brown, where my brother goes to college, and we were all going around saying what our wish was for ourselves. She said, I want to write the next great American novel. It was the moment where I felt older than everyone because I laughed so hard. I was like, “You are so far down the wrong track!” Wish to write a novel. That would be a miracle. Don’t wish to write the next great American novel, that’s a nightmare! It made me feel I actually am a different place in my life than these people I was around. It totally inspired this whole song.”
