The Oakland-raised, Brooklyn-based artist mxmtoon has unveiled a new single called ‘mona lisa’. Check it out below.
“as someone who usually writes songs about other people, one of my ongoing questions is ‘will anyone ever write songs about me?'” Maia explained in a press statement. “mona lisa is about wanting to be the subject of the art for once instead of being the creator. i think we all daydream at some point in our lives of diving into our favorite stories and finding ourselves in the pages. we all deserve the chance to feel like we’re worthy of a spotlight every once in a while, and mona lisa is meant to express that sentiment exactly.”
In 2020, mxmtoon released a pair of EPs, dawn and dusk, which featured collaborations with Carly Rae Jepsen and Tune-Yards’ Merrill Garbus.
