Maia, who performs under the name mxmtoon, is releasing a deluxe version of her latest album, rising, on September 16. It features two new songs: "plastic pony" and "kaleidoscope." With the deluxe LP's announcement, she shared "kaleidoscope." Listen to it above.
"Rising is everything I love packaged into a project, and what better way to expand and build upon that than by releasing deluxe tracks to go with the original twelve. I know that my sense of who I am is ever evolving, and i hope to get that idea across to the people that listen to my music as often as I can," says mxmtoon about rising (the deluxe). "
She adds that the two additional tracks "serve the function of building on more to the story of me. 'kaleidoscope' being about the wildly vast facets of self that we as people can inhabit, and 'plastic pony' covering the realization that life can sometimes slip through our fingers. both lend themselves to the narrative rising tells, while leaving the next chapter of mxmtoon open for exploration!"
