Dropping in early April, the track is intense. While the opening verse could represent something from a horror film, this latest offering is actually significantly more radio friendly than Mariya’s other recent hits. In fact, it’s probably the most mainstream song we’ve heard from her since “Tick Tock“.
Discussing the new single with Ukrainian media, Mariya says “I do what comes from the heart, not from a desire to please somebody. I understand that you need to be yourself in any situation. I hope this can be an example to others.”
Filming the music video on a Bali beach over the course of two days, Mariya hoped to “reveal the power of female energy”. With her Sia-esque dancing and all that mud, she’s certainly succeeded!
The breathtaking clip was directed by celebrated filmmaker Alan Badoev, making “You Are Within Me” Mariya’s second collaboration with the director, the first being “In The Open Field“.
Going by the official storyline for the music video, the songstress enacts a “sacred ritual” in which she rises from the earth and becomes at one with water. Obvious, right?
The single has already topped the iTunes charts in Ukraine and is set to feature on Mariya’s upcoming debut album. People, get excited. Now!
