CMAT has unveiled details of her debut album and shared a new single – ‘No More Virgos’ – listen to it below.

The album, ‘If My Wife New I’d Be Dead’, will be released on February 25 via AWAL Recordings.

Sharing new track, ‘No More Virgos’, CMAT – who was one of NME’s essential emerging artists for 2021, said: “I’m the kind of girl who dates the same person over and over again. Specifically, every single one of my partners have been Virgos.”

The artist, real name Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson, added: “I wanted to write a song that pokes fun at this aspect of my personality, and try to be a voice for all of my long-suffering friends.

“Musically, I really wanted to try and marry my love of 80’s Italo disco with my hatred of Virgos. I just can’t help myself from making terrible decisions sometimes! Sorry!”

Reviewing CMAT’s virtual show last year, NME said: “It’s not just the musical numbers and endless costume changes that made tonight a hit, but CMAT’s sheer attention to detail and comedic timing. From her BTS phone case hinting at her not-so-secret stan alter-ego, to creating her own merch advert in the venue toilets, she’s a real creative force to be reckoned with.

“It just shows that virtual events can be as imaginative and fun as their live counterparts. We’ll probably be watching gigs from behind a screen for a while longer, so now the bar’s been raised, let’s keep it there.”
