CMAT Shares Newest Single '2 Wrecked 2 Care'

CMAT today shares a video for her new single, "2 Wrecked 2 Care," an Americana-goes-pop song about not being able to fall asleep that, according to CMAT is what "would have happened if Sheryl Crow ever had to work in a TJ Maxx." Since its release two weeks ago, "2 Wrecked 2 Care" has been picked up by Flood, Ghettoblaster Dork, DIY, Clash and others; been played by Matt Wilkinson on his Apple Music show, and featured in Spotify's New Music Friday UK and a number of Apple Music playlists.

The video premiered via The Fader and they say it's "it's all deeply camp and a lot of fun." CMAT told them: : "I worked out the concept for this video with the director, Avesta Keshtmand, outside a pub one day, and we had a lot of fun because it was basically just the two of us having cocktails and me showing her lots of different pictures of Miss Piggy on my phone. The most recent lockdown got me very into Jim Henson, and I was keen to do something inspired by his late 70's work on The Muppet Show. We also were very inspired by the YouTube show 'Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared', which was a viral tumblr phenomenon when we were both of tumblr age. (Deep shame lies around there)."

Watch the clip here:

"2 Wrecked 2 Care" follows February's "I Don't Really Care For You", her fourth single, which picked up plaudits from The Guardian, Dork, DIY and many others. UK radio support came from Steve Lamacq and Iggy Pop on 6 Music; Jack Saunders on Radio 1 radio plus Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music, with Spotify adding the song to a number of key editorial playlists.
