American singer-songwriter Maggie Lindemann first made her name as a pop girl and has since branched out into the alt. space. In 2021, the artist dropped her PARANOIA EP, featuring breakout tracks Knife Under My Pillow and Crash and Burn.

Since then, Maggie has released new music including she knows it, how could you do this to me? (feat. Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn), and break me! (feat. Siiickbrain).

Maggie explains the meaning behind her latest single, you’re not special: “I wanted the song to make a statement. Everyone has had to deal with someone in their lives who is two-faced – so kind to your face and mean behind your back. There’s always going to be someone judging you or hoping to see you fail, but rather than let those people get under your skin – keep doing you and pursuing your dreams.

“This song is an anthem for these people of Janus, maybe not the one they want, but it sure was fun to write!”

The singer’s upcoming record, SUCKERPUNCH, will chronicle a journey of self-discovery: “It's the journey from being upset to being angry to being hopeful – a hopefulness I want listeners to know exists for them, too,” Maggie shares.

SUCKERPUNCH will be out on September 16 via swixxzaudio and Virgin Music.
