Today, multi-platinum rising pop star MAX has released his brand new single “Acid Dreams”. Nylon exclusively premiered the song yesterday HERE, lauding it “a true celebration of everything perfect about the one you love.” Listen to “Acid Dreams” now on all digital streaming platforms HERE and watch an animated video for the track below.
“I knew immediately that this was a special record when I wrote my first verse instantaneously in front of my wife while she was in the room,” said MAX. “The song just came together so quickly and naturally when my partner Ryan, from Party Pupils, sent me this idea that he, Alexander Lewis, and Felly worked on together. The beat and the bass just blew me away from the start. It’s definitely one of the most soulful tracks off the album.”
Featuring a guest verse from Felly and production by Ryan Siegel and Alexander Lewis, the track is filled with psychedelia-tinged synths and elements of soulful funk.
With the breakout success of his hit single “Lights Down Low”, MAX garnered a 2019 iHeart Award Nomination for “Best New Pop Artist” as well as a #1 song and multi-platinum certifications across the globe. His 2019 single “Love Me Less” is quickly on its way to repeating that, receiving critical acclaim from GQ and Billboard as well as cracking the top 25 at Top 40 radio.
Since the song’s release in April 2019, “Love Me Less” has continued to explode globally and amassed over 500,000 consumed sales worldwide in less than 4 months. The track has been charting on the Spotify viral and top 200 charts since its debut, as well as within the top 100 for both Shazam and Pandora for over 100 days. MAX recently performed the hit single on The TODAY Show and Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, and will be bringing another live rendition of the track to LIVE With Kelly & Ryan on July 25th.
Last week, MAX performed a stunning rendition of the National Anthem at Major League Baseball’s 90th annual All-Star Game to a sold-out crowd of 36,000 people as well as millions at home. He is currently in the midst of his completely sold out Intimate AF Tour, which will continue throughout the fall with upcoming dates in Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C. and more over the next several months.
