OFF FORTHCOMING EP
THIS PLACE WOULDN’T BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU
LOS ANGELES (April 8, 2022) – Today, rising artist MASN releases his latest single, “Love Me For Me,” out now via RCA Records.
The message of “Love Me For Me” is one of acceptance, as MASN’s emotive vocals echo alongside a singular guitar melody, finding solace in his partner loving him for who he is despite his flaws and own anxieties. The song was initially teased to fans earlier this year on TikTok and quickly gained traction through its relatable lyrics and custom filter designed by MASN, resulting in nearly 50K creations on the platform.
“‘Love Me For Me’ is appropriately titled because the beauty lies in the simplicity of the song. It’s about having someone who loves you for you, unconditionally, despite your imperfections,” says MASN. “This is a song you would listen to with your person or while daydreaming about having that person, which many of us can admit to doing. Although simply said, it’s a very intimate and powerful song when felt.”
“Love Me For Me” is the introductory single off MASN’s forthcoming EP, This Place Wouldn’t Be The Same Without You, set for release on June 3. His first body of work since his debut project in 2020, This Place Wouldn’t Be The Same Without You serves as an exploratory journey of the multi-faceted experience of life. Examining the rollercoasters of love, sadness, grief, joy, devastation, and how each emotion shapes the space around them, the project serves as a reminder to each listener that they matter in this world.
21-year-old Utah native MASN exploded onto the scene in 2019 when his hit single “Psycho!” dropped. The track exploded online and had garnered over 100M combined audio and video streams worldwide and over 1.5M TikTok videos. Shortly after, he released his track “Val!um” followed by tapping rapper Trippie Redd for a remix of “Psycho!” which marked MASN’s first release with RCA Records.
MASN’s expansive creative palette distills into a dreamy melting pot of lo-fi beatcraft, indie experimentation, hip-hop fluidity, and lush pop, amplifying every side of himself within his songs. He released his debut EP, How To Kill A Rockstar, in 2020, featuring the singles “Hate Me!” and “Fire,” which received praise from Billboard, Ones To Watch, PAPER, and more. Last year MASN released a slew of new singles, including “Strawberry Huracan,” “Don’t Talk,” and “Self Sabotage.”
