“nEw Me” by Anna-Rose Clayton

Anna-Rose Clayton’s newest release, “nEw Me,” features her signature powerhouse vocals and a catchy pop melody that’s sure to get you out of your seat and moving. We had the pleasure of interviewing Anna-Rose Clayton, and here’s what she had to say:

Q: What message are you hoping to convey with “nEw Me”?

CLAYTON: I hope that people will feel confident whilst listening to my song, stop pleasing people & I hope that people understand that even if you feel like s*** and you’re supposed to feel miserable, there’s still a side of you that’s a bad b*tch.

Q: What was your inspiration for the music video? And what did you enjoy the most about making it?

CLAYTON: I wanted to portray different versions of me, so I thought what better way than showcasing me in different outfits and looks. You can be a different you each day! I really enjoyed the process of making concepts and creating the looks, next to music I have a big passion for creating visuals and I would like to do that more and more. Further, we had a small crew which made it effortless, fun, and easy on the day itself

Q: I love how catchy and upbeat this song sounds! What was your creative process for this song?

CLAYTON: Thank you! The only thing I knew when stepping into the studio that day was that I wanted to make a housy song. I was writing a lot of sad lyrics and melodies during that time, so I wanted to make something that made me feel something else. The song was written very fast! From the first few lyrics, I knew what it had to be.

Q: If you could only listen to one album for the rest of the year, what would it be and why?

CLAYTON: Oef difficult, so many great albums! But I would say for me it’s one of Rihanna’s earlier albums, those songs hit different and you feel so balzy whilst listening like: ”Shut up and drive drive drive”

Q: What is one thing you wish you had been told before you decided to become a musician?

CLAYTON: That it can be hard on your mental state, I think people often have no idea how much time goes into it, how many times you have to reinvent yourself, and how much emotions are intertwined in the process. But I wouldn’t change it any other way, in the end, you learn so much that you can implement in a lot of different stages in life.

Q: What is one thing you are looking forward to achieving musically this year?

CLAYTON: My main goal is to release a lot of songs, create cool visuals, and to perform outside of the Netherlands, if I can achieve these goals I would be a happy girlie jumping around.
