The Maine has released an empowering new music video for “Am I Pretty?”. This is the second single off their latest full-length album American Candy.
Fans can watch the music video on their official YouTube channel here.
The song embraces one’s individuality and tackles issues such as self-esteem and social expectations within its satirical lyrics.
Lead singer, John O’Callaghan, describes the message behind the song: “You are beautiful because your eyes are different sizes and your lisp gets in between your tongue and teeth every time you try to say “something”. You are beautiful because the scar under your chin looks like a spider and because you have a massive fear of heights. You are beautiful because there never has been, nor will there ever be anyone else on this Earth like you. Because your flaws are like fingerprints and should be embraced just like the free will that resides inside. You are not beautiful because of the symmetry in the little squares on your telephone, you are beautiful because’you’ are the only “you” this place will ever know.”
“Am I Pretty?” is the latest single off The Maine’s highly-anticipated fifth studio record, American Candy, available now on iTunes: hyperurl.co/americancandy. The album debuted in the Top 40 on Billboard, and #3 Independent Albums. The band recently completed their free fan appreciation tour in the US.
