Maya Hawke Announces New Album ‘Chaos Angel’, Shares Video for New Single ‘Missing Out’

    Maya Hawke has announced her third LP, Chaos Angel, which lands on May 31 via Mom+Pop. The follow-up to 2022’s Moss was co-produced by Christian Lee Hutson and features contributions from Benjamin Lazar Davis and Will Graefe. Lead single ‘Missing Out’ arrives today with a music video directed by Alex Ross Perry. Check it out below.

    “There was actually a girl who went to Brown, where my brother goes to college, and we were all going around saying what our wish was for ourselves,” Hawke saif in a statement about the new song. “She said, ‘I want to write the next great American novel.’ It was the moment where I felt older than everyone because I laughed so hard. I was like, ‘You are so far down the wrong track!’ Wish to write a novel. That would be a miracle. Don’t wish to write the next great American novel, that’s a nightmare! It made me feel I actually am a different place in my life than these people I was around. It totally inspired this whole song.”

    In a press release, Hawke described the concept of a chaos angel as “a figure raised to believe they were a god of love, only to move through the world and realize they were instead leaving wreckage and ruin in their wake.” She added, “On the journey home, she goes back through all the places she thought she destroyed. And in the rubble, wonder and beauty and magic grew.”
