In Apologies from Men: The Album, Maul has taken infamous male apology statements and created animated videos of paper dolls set to original music. The album features the apologies of Louis CK, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer, Mario Batali, Russell Simmons, Dustin Hoffman, Charlie Rose, and an instrumental song from the men who have been accused but have yet to apologize. By carefully constructing the songs around the actual words and tone of the "apologies", Maul purposely highlights the flaws and ridiculousness of the statements. Each song is different, with a variation of dance tracks, piano ballads, and even a faux-Christian rock song. The album features additional singing talent from comedic musicians Alyson Greenfield, Jen Kwok, Lady Kate Weber, Alexius Smith, Chase O'Donnell, and Tahlia Robinson.
