Premiere: Listen to History, a powerful new single from Melbourne's MAXON

She launches it November 22 with a special performance at the Paris Jazz Club.

History is the latest single from Melbourne songstress MAXON, a powerful new track in the vein of Meg Mac but with a bit more juice in the tank. It starts out very slinky and slow, before launching into some brazen chorus sections that showcase MAXON's deep, commanding vocal presence. The personal feeling within the track is reflective of the inspiration behind, as MAXON explains: "I have done so much growing over the past two years and I think History is simply a diary entry in a melody. This song is the first step I’ve ever taken towards bravery and self-acceptance. It’s long over-due and represents a major turning point in my life and I hope my career as well. I’m breaking free from a long standing history of self-doubt, inflicted upon me throughout my life, and I'm burning all those bridges behind me to focus on a productive future full of bravery and self-love. It’s extremely hard to live a full and happy life when a person you love is constantly putting you down. I’m learning to reflect those things now and accept everyone for who they are - because we don’t know what they’ve been through to get to that point. And in turn, accept myself and reward myself more for the progress I am making with my mental health."

Ahead of a huge single launch show on November 22 at Melbourne's Paris Cat Jazz Club, dive into History, below:
