LA-based singer-songwriter MAUMAUMAU has released his newest single, ‘Famous’.

Written about disconnecting with an old friend that became famous, the track is dominated by a heavy pop beat, soundtracking anthemic choruses with bright riffs and fuzz-hinted production.

The latest release ahead of his debut EP, ‘Meow Meow Meow’‘Famous’ follows the dancefloor-filling, bass-heavy sounds set by earlier single, ‘Curveball Whip Cream’; a cool genre combination blending dance, pop, and touches of rock.

Speaking about ‘Famous’, MAUMAUMAU said the lyrics had him “thinking about fame and the burdens that come with it. That’s what this song is about.”

“It’s not angry or beefy or even resentful. It’s just observant and pensive,” he continued.

MAUMAUMAU’s EP, ‘Meow Meow Meow’ is out May 21st.
