The singer-songwriter shares the fourth single from her upcoming sophmore album.
Making her name across the globe, Irish superstar CMAT has released 'Stay For Something', the new single from her forthcoming album Crazymad, For Me.
A more personal piece than fans are used to from the singer, 'Stay For Something' explores a past relationship of CMAT's, with instrospective lyrics questioning why she let herself be treated the way she was.
Speaking about the track, the musician said: “It's basically just about questioning why I stayed / suffered in a bad relationship for as long as i did. trying to desperately find some kind of meaning in the mess and then being embarrassed when i remember the good parts. It's not very lyrical or poetic, it's just a lot of emotion and energy - this song, to me, sounds like going for a run at 1am with your headphones on full blast, screaming through the streets in order to get away from your problems. i hope that at least one person does that when they hear it.”
In addition to the new track, the singer has released a wild music video, perfectly harnassing her chaotic energy into a fairly straightforward video, of course, accompanied by her most stadium-sized clothes to date.
'Stay For Something' follows a busy summer for CMAT: a breakout Glastonbury moment on the Woodsies stage, followed by a solo acoustic number post-Elton John on the BBC’s live coverage; a Spotify billboard in Times Square; two huge outdoor supports to Florence and the Machine and her first festival headline at Irish festival Otherside, plus festivals across the UK and Europe.
Announcing further live dates, the artist has included a three-date solo run across North America, an extensive UK instore tour and a third date at the 3Olympia in Dublin, which goes on sale this Friday, September 8 at 10am - here.
Out via AWAL Recordings on October 13, CMAT described Crazymad, For Me as “an abstract break-up album - about what happens when you are still angry about something that happened 10 years ago”.
