Rising British recording artist and activist Mae Stephens builds upon the monumental success of her debut single ‘If We Ever Broke Up’ with the release of her latest track ‘ADHD’ – a lyrically powerful, self-reflective pop bop that sees the fearless singer take ownership of supposed “flaws” and embrace her truth.
Co-written by Stephens alongside Joe Kirkland, Pink Slip and Summer Overstreet, the super inspiring song serves as something of a rally cry for those living with the much debated, and often misunderstood condition that affects people’s behaviour.
Commenting on the single, Mae says via a press release: “‘ADHD’ is a really important track for me. It’s about my process of going through understanding myself, and how the word ‘disorder’ is the wrong term for it, as it’s my normality. To anyone with ADHD, you are seen, and you are loved.”

Of her life-changing 12 months, Stephens says: “Where do I even start. 2023 gave me everything I ever wanted. I have so many people to thank, from the people who supported me from the beginning to the fans that streamed the song to my family who have been the biggest support to me this last year. It has been one hell of a whirlwind and definitely a year I won’t forget.”
“2023 you gave me hope that in dark times you can push through and succeed to enjoy the simple things in life. But moving on 2024 is the time and place for some new tunes and a new turn in my musical journey. Expect some weird and wonderful surprises and maybe some hidden gems at the end. 2024 is going to be an incredible year but to send 2023 off with a bang. If we ever broke up… I’d be 100% be sad. Thank you 2023 you gave me my dream. Cheers!”
