The album’s release comes after the new single ‘sad disco’, a dance party for one inspired by the stacks of ABBA records which comforted mxmtoon during her year of lost time. Just recently, mxmtoon dropped another track, ‘coming of age’, as a preview for fans.

“I started focusing on mxmtoon when I was seventeen. Four years have passed since then, and I’ve grown up and changed so much since being the teenager that started all of this. 'coming of age' is about the growth I’ve experienced between writing, producing, and personally understanding the individual I know myself to be currently,” mxmtoon mastermind Maia says.

The album ‘rising’ shows a new, more dynamic and highly danceable side of the 21-year-old. To celebrate the album’s release, mxmtoon will be heading to Australia for the very first time.

“I’m so excited to be able to come to Australia this October!” mxmtoon says. “I’ve been wanting to play shows there for so long and it feels crazy that it’s finally able to happen. I am scared of the bugs though, I heard they are really big, so i may need some help.”

‘rising’ is out now.
