Maiah Manser Releases New Song “With A Smile”
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Maiah Manser released a new song “With A Smile” on October 6, 2023 via Arista Records.
The song is the first single off of her upcoming EP “Fourth Wall”, which is expected to be released in 2024.
She teased the song on TikTok, which has accrued over 30 million views and 3.5 million likes.
Maiah Manser shared on social media, “'With A Smile' is the first song off my upcoming EP 'Fourth Wall'. This will be a world built around the obsession with fame, success, entertainment and how far we go to obtain it. I think it's so unbelievably meta that the first song from this EP went mega viral!”
The track was written by Maiah Mari Manser and Josh Leibsohn. Produced by Joza.
Maiah Manser said of the song, “I wrote 'With A Smile' about my experience first coming to LA, club culture, and the unrealistic gender standards of being a dream woman. 'She's a dreamer, teaser..she's an angel, sinner…eyes like a shooting star'. This picture I'm painting is not reality, this is a dream. The 'siren' call at the end of the song is actually the realest moment of pure unbridled rage, to let go of everything desirable I thought I had to be.”
- The EP is her first project in two years since the 2022 EP “third degree”.
She said of the EP, “The concept of the EP will be about being a woman in the entertainment industry, breaking the fourth wall and the human obsession with fame and success.”
Alsso, she told Raydar Magazine about the EP in an interview, “Sonically, I decided I'm in my fast-beat era, and I think it will be that way for many releases beyond this EP. It will also be edgier, more cinematic, but forever ethereal. Lyrically and world-building-wise, the content deals with the human obsession of fame, success, and being entertained, which has been a fun and very new exploration.”
