 CMAT has turned into her mother – and she’s written a song about it. The poignant fist-pumper – the third single from the global pop star’s upcoming second album – features none other than John Grant on guest duties. 

CMAT on Where Are Your Kids Tonight?: “I wrote this song when I realised I had turned into my mother. It’s kind of inspired by this image i had of entering a waterfall-like portal from an Irish kids’ show called ‘Foreign Exchange’ where I’m looking at 1988 and 2023 at the exact same time every time I look at myself in the mirror. To quote a TikTok comment I saw recently: ‘The human experience is absolutely fucking wild.’

CMAT on working with John Grant: “I always knew this song was going to be a duet, and when I was writing it I always said to myself, ‘It would be so good if we could get someone *like* John Grant on this’, because a) his body of lyrics reflects my own life and experience more closely than anyone else working today b) I never thought we would get him. But I got him! And he is so sweet. His performance really adds the layer of profundity that I was looking for to carry off the two-ages-staring-at-each-other angle. Love him so much.”
