FG MUSIC: The Maine Releases New Music Video and a Justin Bieber cover!


The Maine is no stranger to the Philippines having performed a number of concerts here. Fans of the boys should be delighted to know that they have released new music and new music videos to go along with it.

The band recently released the music video for “Am I Pretty?” which is the second single off their latest full-length album American Candy. The video is now available via the Maine’s official YouTube channel, which you can also view below. American Candy is available now on iTunes. You can get the album here.

“Am I Pretty?” embraces one’s individuality and tackle issues such as self-esteem and social expectations within its satirical lyrics. John O’Callaghan, the lead singer for The Maine, has this to say about the song:

“You are beautiful because your eyes are different sizes and your lisp gets in between your tongue and teeth every time you try to say “something”. You are beautiful because the scar under your chin looks like a spider and because you have a massive fear of heights. You are beautiful because there never has been, nor will there ever be anyone else on this Earth like you. Because your flaws are like fingerprints and should be embraced just like the free will that resides inside. You are not beautiful because of the symmetry in the little squares on your telephone, you are beautiful because “you” are the only “you” this place will ever know.”

Recently, the band also released a cover to Justin Beiber’s “Love Yourself”, which is also the first single for their upcoming covers album titled, Covers (Side B). You can watch the video below.
