The Maine Releases New Song “Loved You A Little” featuring Taking Back Sunday & Charlotte Sands
- American alt-rock band The Maine teamed up with American rock band Taking Back Sunday and American singer-songwriter Charlotte Sands to release a new song “Loved You A Little”.
This marks the first time The Maine, Taking Back Sunday and Charlotte Sands have worked together.
The song is the first single since The Maine's eighth studio album “XOXO: From Love and Anxiety in Real Time”, which was released in July 2021.
It was written by John O'Callaghan, Jared Monaco, Kennedy Brock, Pat Kirch and Garrett Nickelsen. Produced by John O'Callaghan and The Maine.
The accompanying music video was directed by Guadalupe Bustos.
The Maine frontman John O'Callaghan said, “This song is for anyone feeling like they wasted their time on a feeling. Adam and Charlotte both gave that sentiment more energy than I could have ever imagined and now we get to share it all with you.”
- Taking Back Sunday frontman Adam Lazzara continued, “It's been a privilege to have been able to see and hear the growth The Maine have shown throughout their career, and even more to have all the while call them friends. I've always been impressed with how focused and hardworking they are. When they reached out about 'Loved You A Little,' I was excited because there was a global pandemic and I needed something to do. What makes me proud of being a part of it is a little of the same things I admire in them rubbed off on me. In a way It helped to remind myself of who I wanted to be when I'd have been hard pressed to feel any further away from that.”
Charlotte Sands added, “It was such an honor to be a part of “Loved You A Little” and I am still pinching myself at the idea that I'm singing on a song with two of my favorite singers and bands of all time and they've both been and continue to be huge inspirations for me as a writer, performer, and artist. John and Adam are two of the best vocalists in existence and I'm thankful to them for trusting me with this song. I hope you love it as much as I do.”
