Mae Muller announces ‘vulnerable and empowering’ debut album

24 May 2023

Eurovision flop Mae Muller has announced that her debut album will be “empowering” as her “vulnerable” side is showcased.

The 25-year-old singer – who finished second bottom with the UK's entry 'I Wrote A Song' at the Eurovision Song Contest – will release the 17 track-LP Sorry I’m Late on September 15.

She said: “I’m so excited about the album coming out. I can’t wait for the fans that have stuck by me from the beginning to hear the record, and for those that have been so supportive on my Eurovision journey to hear more music.

“I’m really showing a different side of myself on this album: a vulnerable one, one that I haven’t spoken about before.

“I can be strong, sassy, confident, and I can also be sad and have my low moments, but I’m still me… it’s just as empowering to show both sides.”

The record will feature her Eurovision dance-pop break-up song – which reached number nine in the UK charts – as well as her previously released tracks I Just Came To Dance and Better Days, the later a collaboration with Neiked and Polo G.

Other songs on the album include Sorry Daniel, Bitch With A Broken Heart, Me, Myself & I, Tatiana (featuring Dylan), Somebody New, I Wish I Could Hate You, Little Bit Sad, MTJL, Breathe, Something Real, Nervous (In A Good Way), Porn Lied To Us, Miss America and Written By A Woman.

The tracks are described as exploring “love and loss, dating and relationships with fearless honesty” as well as “capturing the broader frustrations of young women today” and creating “a love letter to the multiplicity of women”.

London-born Muller also “thanked” fans on Instagram “for sticking” with her.

She added: “I can’t wait to laugh, dance, sing and cry with you to this album!!! i love it so much, almost as much as i love all of you.”

At Liverpool, Muller finished 25th with I Wrote A Song, claiming 24 points as Germany came below the UK, on 18 points.

Sweden’s Loreen, who previously won Eurovision in 2012, took home victory on the night with Tattoo.
