After amassing more than 30 million streams for her addictive alt-pop gems, rising breakout star Maude Latour confidently steps into her next chapter with new track and video “Headphones,” out now on Warner Records. Praised by Rolling Stone for its “pop-perfect sound,” the irresistible release comes just a few short weeks before Maude embarks on her first-ever nationwide headline tour – which sold out within minutes– including stops in Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago, Nashville, and two nights at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom. Check out full dates below.
“‘Headphones’ starts exactly after where the ‘Strangers Forever’ EP left us — heartbroken and experiencing loss, but slowly finding strength, as we say goodbye to a person of our past,” Maude explains. “‘Headphones’ is an opening of a new world; it is the first ray of light as the storm begins to end. I was lying on a hardwood floor, realizing I was truly alone in my head, no more romantic partner to lean on, when I first heard a voice in my head. It was my own. I wanted to learn to love myself, I wanted to grow within. ‘Headphones’ is that terrifying leap into our future, and into our deeper selves.”
The breakout artist—who hails from New York City (by way of London, Hong Kong, and Sweden)—first made waves back in 2019 with an independently released EP called Starsick. Her authenticity and emotionally nuanced lyrics immediately resonated with listeners, and she joined the Warner Records family in 2021. With a steady stream of viral hits, including “One More Weekend,” “Furniture,” and “Clean” from her recently released major label debut EP Strangers Forever, Latour has appeared on prestigious playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday, Lorem, and Indie Pop, plus earned critical acclaim from the likes of The FADER, NYLON, Billboard, Refinery29, and FLAUNT Magazine.
Stay tuned for much more to come from Maude Latour in 2022.
