Michaela May is on the cusp of releasing her new single ‘1954’.
The now Canadian-based singer is already making waves with the track, which is a straight out pop track that lyrically sticks its middle finger up to anyone who dares suggest you have to conform.
“1954 is a song that represents empowerment and strength in a world where people can and will criticize your every move,” Michaela says of the release. “I wrote the song out of frustration with old school societal norms that have no place in today’s culture. I wanted to write something that empowers people to live their life the way they choose.
“No matter what judgement or negativity someone faces, it’s possible to rise above it and (as cheesy as this may sound) just be who you are. I wrote the song in just a few hours and recorded the song the next day. It’s a defiant, sassy song and it embodies everything I have wanted to say for a long time!”
Michaela is a no-holds-barred pop artist and doesn’t want to pretend to be anything she’s not, citing both Madonna and Lady Gaga as influences.
“If I could have one sixteenth of those ladies’ careers I would be happy. I’m constantly in awe of their talent and I look to them as the benchmark for pop greatness.”
‘1954’ is due for digital release tomorrow.
