Soon after, Clara Mae signed to Big Beat Records and dove into crafting her debut EP, Sorry For Writing All The Songs About You. The conceptual six-song set unfurls the story of a turbulent relationship—from falling in love at first sight and breaking up to regretting the outcome and ultimately moving on. All six tracks are co-written by Clara and longtime collaborator Cassandra Ströberg.
Sorry For Writing All The Songs About You also features Clara Mae’s collaborative single “Better Me Better You” with Jake Miller, which the duo performed on the Elvis Duran Show and MTV’s TRL. The EP also includes breakthrough singles “I’m Not Her” (praised as “a pop anthem” by Culture Collide), “I Forgot” (deemed “the perfect anthem” for running into an ex-flame by Refinery 29) – both of which have amassed over 25 million combined worldwide streams. “Clara Mae has been putting in work” said Billboard, while Flaunt praised her as “the latest pop sensation on the rise.”
