Fans of Lorde have found a new queen with rising pop artist Maude Latour! Bright and peppy, new single ‘Furniture’ marks a stunning return following the release of last year’s EP Starsick.

Finding a more energised sound, ‘Furniture’ deploys fun guitar riffs and restless drumbeats to create an atmosphere that does all to resist sitting still. With a deft knack for a catchy melody and an ever increasing prowess with a smart lyric, the new single is a palpable forwards step into Maude 2.0.

“This song actually saved me. I didn’t think my heart could actually break, but it turns out I’m human like everyone else,” shares Latour of what inspired the track. “I wrote this song at the lowest moment of my break-up, and the power and healing I had after creating it started me on a road to finding myself again. But the song became itself when it became the anthem that I needed. I remember waiting outside on a cold November morning to accidentally run into my ex. I was blasting this song, and suddenly I felt invincible. He and I had a conversation, we both cried, and he started to walk away. I was sitting on the steps to the library at Columbia University, watching him look back once more.

“But for the first time I wasn’t crushed as he walked away. I had a secret. I had this song,” she continues. “I put my headphones in and laid down on the concrete stairs. I started blasting the song and crying and laughing at the same time. This song was my healing, this was me. I hadn’t lost myself. Here I was, writing my world, writing my existence into the history of humanity, nothing was lost, nothing was in vain. This song hasn’t lost any of its power to me.”

‘Furniture’ is available now.
