MAUJ teases upcoming EP with the release of her vibey first single, “Mind”

Toronto, ON – It wasn’t that long ago that Toronto singer/songwriter MAUJ was hinting at the release of her first single and debut EP. She followed through on her word as promised, and dropped “Mind”, just days into 2017. Acting as the lead single off the upcoming EP (which name and official date is still to be determined), the track was produced by dF.

His name might look familiar, and it should. He also produced the singer’s first ever release “Bad Decisions” and will be producing the rest of her EP. After listening to this latest release, we’re looking forward to more collaborations. The combination of the singer’s sensational tones and vocal fluidity mixed with dF’s forward-thinking ear make these two consistently seem like the perfect creative duo.

The songstress was able to elaborate on the track, and explained, “We experimented with a lot of different sounds and styles for the EP, and “Mind” is the outcome of that versatile direction. The song is about when you sort of need a time out from someone. When things get a little rocky in a relationship/friendship, sometimes you need to take a little step back. To me, space is very important, there’s nothing wrong with wanting time to yourself.”

Check out MAUJ’s velvet voice on “Mind” below.
