Listen: Maxwell Young’s debut album ‘Daydreamer’.

18-year-old Wellingtonian Maxwell Young has just dropped his debut album ‘Daydreamer’, featuring a total of nine tracks which he wrote and produced.

Young shared via Instagram the following about the album's title track: “daydreamer is about me being a loser like jgl [Joseph Gordon Levitt] in [500] days of summer. it’s rly not a good person to be, mindset to have. manic pixie dream girls don’t exist. i’m trying to subvert that trope that messed me up as a little kid through my songwriting. big personal goal.”

The album sees fellow New Zealander Lontalius provide additional vocals on ‘Evergreen’, as well as feature from rising star Clairo on ‘Midnight’.
