Maya Hawke shares new song 'Dark'.

Maya Hawke has officially shared the second single, 'Dark' - from her upcoming third album, 'Chaos Angel'. Alongside the track, she has dropped a music video directed by Alex Ross Perry.

About the song, Maya says: “‘Dark’ is a cut and dry love song about a relationship struggling to find its footing. 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.”
