Mae Muller Shares Vibrant Topic Remix And Vendredi Sur Mer Version Of ‘I Wrote A Song’!

Today, Mae Muller is releasing two new versions of her dynamic single ‘I Wrote A Song’, which was announced last month as the UK’s entry for Eurovision 2023. The instant earworm became the first UK Eurovision entry to debut inside the Top 40 in its first week since 2011.

The vibrant new reworks are courtesy of DJ, producer and musician Topic and Swiss singer-songwriter Vendredi Sur Mer. You can listen to Topic’s remix here, and Vendredi Sur Mer’s version here. Mae also recently dropped an acoustic version of the track, which strips back the polished production of the original and lets the power of her vocals shine through – you can watch the session here.

‘I Wrote A Song’ marks the beginning of an exciting new era for the rising pop superstar and is her first new music of 2023. Co-written with Karen Poole (who has written for Kylie Minogue, David Guetta, Galantis, and fellow Eurovision legends, Jedward) and Lewis Thompson (Anne-Marie, Little Mix, Steve Aoki), the track opens on a gut-punch of a lyric that perfectly showcases the strength and full-force personality of Muller’s songwriting (“When you said you were leaving/To work on your mental health/You didn’t mention the cheating/You kept that one to yourself”). With its dizzying cascade of bubbly beats, pulse-pounding grooves, and lush guitar flourishes, ‘I Wrote A Song’ ultimately builds to a sublime intensity as Muller celebrates the thrill of fully owning her story and finding catharsis through creation.

Mae says,

“’I Wrote A Song’ is a track I wrote after the fallout from a relationship. I was hurt and also a little angry, so I thought, where can I put this negative energy and make something positive out of it? The song is less about revenge and more about empowering yourself. While I was recording the song, I envisioned me and my girls dancing to it on a Saturday night, and that’s exactly what I want people to do! To dance, sing, let go, and feel empowered after listening.”

The official music video for the track heightens the song’s carefree energy with a bright and vibrant ’90s aesthetic. Directed by AB/CD/CD (a duo known for their work with artists like Lily Allen, Franz Ferdinand, and Kasabian), the visual follows Muller as she bounces back from a breakup by literally stomping all over any lingering memories of her ex via some ingenious use of fantastically detailed miniatures sets. Intercut with tongue-in-cheek choreography, the video fuses magical realism and true-to-life emotion to wild and glorious effect.

‘I Wrote A Song’ follows on from Mae’s late 2022 single, ‘I Just Came To Dance‘, a gorgeous piece of pop escapism that premiered alongside its eye-popping video and the platinum-certified smash hit “Better Days” (a US chart-topping collaboration with NEIKED and Polo G).

A bold voice of a frustrated generation, Mae Muller makes pop music that packs a real punch. With a deft ability to celebrate the female experience and capture a generational mood, she has amassed a huge following, garnering millions of listeners. While a fierce feminism often informs her writing, her new music exposes a more vulnerable side as Mae explores love and loss, dating and relationships with fearless honesty, confronting her own experiences whilst also capturing the broader frustrations of young women today, “I feel like I’m slowly learning to be vulnerable. I can be strong, sassy, confident, and I can be sad and have my low moments: I’m still me.. It’s just as empowering to show both sides.”
