The track landed on streaming services yesterday (September 9), with mxmtoon, also known mononymously as Maia, announcing its release on social media.
“I hope you love it as much as I do. It was such an honour to work with Carly Rae Jepsen on it and I don’t know, I’m just really excited,” she said on her Instagram stories.
It was accompanied by a music video that follows Maia on a day out in the city, strolling down streets with her mask on and bike in tow.

The upcoming collaboration follows on from the release of Maia’s latest single, ‘Bon Iver’, which dropped last month with an official music video. The track was the first lifted from her forthcoming EP, ‘Dusk’, due out October 1.
The new record follows on from her previous EP, ‘Dawn’, which was released in April this year. Upon its release, NME gave the EP four stars, saying “the follow-up to her debut album showcases a songwriter blossoming into something special”.

Jepsen also released new material of her own in August, with her single ‘Me And The Boys In The Band’.
Back in May, Jepsen released a surprise album, ‘Dedicated Side B’, a companion release to her 2019 LP, ‘Dedicated’, after weeks of teasing it on social media.
The drop was closely followed by Jepsen reporting she’d made an “entire quarantine album” during lockdown.
