Mae Stephens, the rising star who took the music world by storm with her debut single “If We Ever Broke Up”, is back with a powerful new track that delves into her personal journey with ADHD. Titled simply “ADHD“, this funk-laden anthem is a celebration of individuality and self-acceptance.

Following the success of “If We Ever Broke Up”, which amassed nearly one billion audio streams and became a TikTok sensation in 2023, Mae Stephens has emerged as a leading voice in the alt-pop scene. Now, with “ADHD”, she continues to push boundaries and challenge perceptions with her candid lyricism and infectious energy.

“‘ADHD’ is a really important track for me,” Mae shares. “It’s about my process of understanding myself and embracing what makes me unique. I’ve always known that I learn differently to others, and that’s not a bad thing. With this song, I wanted to celebrate neurodiversity and send a message of love and acceptance to anyone who feels different.”

The track has already garnered acclaim for its addictive groove and empowering message, with DIY hailing it as an “addictive offering” and Official Charts, Dork, and Noctis Magazine offering their support. Mae’s vibrant and animated music video explores the inner workings of the neurodivergent mind, shedding light on common traits such as a short attention span and high focus.

As she gears up for the year ahead, Mae Stephens is set to headline her first show at Colours, Hoxton on February 27th, marking a milestone moment in her career. With over 10 million monthly listeners on Spotify and a string of successful festival performances under her belt, Mae is poised to make her mark on 2024.

But beyond the accolades and achievements, Mae’s journey is about more than just music. It’s about using her platform to inspire and uplift others, and to create a space where everyone feels seen and heard. With “ADHD”, Mae Stephens is breaking down barriers and paving the way for a more inclusive and accepting world.
