Maya Hawke Shares Video for New Song ‘Dark’

    Maya Hawke has shared a new single, ‘Dark’, which will appear on her upcoming album Chaos Angel. The track, which follows last month’s ‘Missing Out’, comes paired with a video from director Alex Ross Perry. Check it out below.

    “‘Dark’ is a cut and dry love song about a relationship struggling to find its footing,” Hawke explained in a statement. “It’s about trying to sort out the mixed bag of history and pain two people bring into a new love to find the path forward. The chorus was written a few years ago when I was going through a particularly debilitating bout of bedtime anxiety: I would lay in bed with the fear that if I let myself fall asleep, my brain would forget how to breathe and I would die in my sleep. I saw a doctor who told me that I had to become okay with dying. He said if I accepted it, I would be able to sleep and would likely…not die. He was right, I didn’t die. And I wrote this song to celebrate it.”

    Chaos Angel, the follow-up to 2022’s Moss, will be released on May 31 via Mom+Pop.
