Maya Hawke’s Release
Maya Hawke’s release of “Sweet Tooth” couldn’t come too soon. The beloved Maya Hawke from Stranger Things is back with another song in anticipation of her new album. Since the widespread release of the new season of stranger things, Maya Hawke’s music career has been boosted. You might know her as the beloved character Robin or the pop creator of the Blush album. Either way, we over here at Music Daily love to see all of the stranger things kids branching into the music world.
’Sweet Tooth’ was the last song written for ‘MOSS,’” Hawke explains. “The lyrics were written in Atlanta while filming, but Christian [Lee Hutson] and I recorded the first demo in Nashville. “When we finished the first recording session, I felt this eruption of joy, and I knew this feeling had to be on the record.”
In addition to Sweet Tooth, the single “Thérèse” was released in July. It has everything, from dreamy strings to heavy guitar solos, and beyond that, the new song is an ekphrastic poem. An ekphrastic poem is poetry about visual art, something that Hawke masters in her introspective new single about a 1938 oil painting by French artist Balthasar Klossowski (otherwise known as Balthus), titled Thérèse Dreaming. The painting is of Thérèse Blanchard, a twelve-year-old girl at the time, sitting in a chair, stretching, with her cat drinking milk beside her.
The Video for Sweet Tooth
Hawkes released a dreamy music video to follow the playful song about growing pains. Dropping the same day of the song release. It stars herself and her friends. Hawke explained how she explored and reevaluated aspects of herself as a grown-up through the process of writing the songs on “Moss.”
Maya Hawke Releases “Sweet Tooth” and it has a lively video with visuals and embraces the melancholic themes of the song. It follows Hawke visiting the dentist. They slip on a mask, putting her to sleep. She proceeds to dream about her friends holding a memorial for her on the beach.
“Sweet Tooth was born out of conversations with Maya about the song, the album, and the unique feel of sweetness, cavity, death, and joy,” said Celine Sutter, the music video director. “We discussed care, caretaking, and childhood adult friendships.”
