Maya Jane Coles serves up album teaser with triple single release
Queen of underground electronic music, Maya Jane Coles, is helping us to start autumn in style by dropping a triple-whammy of new releases!
On September 1st 2021, the award-winning Japanese artist released not one, but three singles as a teaser for her upcoming album.
Night Creature, Survival Mode, and Need are the first tracks to be unveiled from Maya’s new record “Night Creature”, which will be released on October 29th 2021 via I / AM / ME.
Written, produced, mixed and performed by Maya, “Night Creature” features some amazing collaborations with guest artists including Julia Stone, Lie Ning, Claudia Kane and Karin Park.
Slick, atmospheric and mesmerising, Maya’s fifth studio album offers an antidote to the ongoing collective experience the world is living through; an homage to the seductive world that comes to life after darkness.
She says, “When it comes to my way of creating music, I have always been a creature of the night. My creativity usually multiplies in the peaceful hours when everything around me is stopped and I feel completely in my own world.
“So on the other hand, at the club, the night can turn into some of the most energetic and ecstatic moments. For me, “Night Creature” brings these moments together, crossing from darkness to light, from melancholy to energy, the music that I like to make the most.”
Performing in unique and exciting venues and spaces all over the world – from the Tate Modern gallery in London and the MOMA in New York to stadiums, hotel parking lots, bridges, deserts, fashion shows, mountains, mud fields, beaches, and, not to mention, the most prestigious clubs in the world – Maya continues to be regarded as one of the most enigmatic and exciting talents in the music industry.
As well as producing remixes of a large number of iconic artists including Depeche Mode and Ella Fitzgerald, her sound has, in turn, been sampled by pop super stars such as Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj. She has also collaborated with the likes of Tricky, Peaches, and Young M.A. on his own album.
As a creative team player, working together with other incredible artists formed a key element of the production process of “Night Creature”.
Maya explains, “The amazing vocal collaborators who have worked on the album take my music to another level in this work. It is an album that I have worked on for longer than any of the previous ones, so I am very happy to finally be able to bring this music to the world, hoping everyone will enjoy it as much as I do!”
