“Her most empowering anthem yet” – TRIPLE J RADIO
Already a star in her native Australia, Meg Mac has set her sights on the UK with her new album, Hope. The first track is the synth-infused ‘Give Me My Name Back’, a song about reclaiming dignity and self-worth in the face of emotional and physical abuse and upon its worldwide release, Meg received hundreds of private messages of thanks through social media.
“There were lots of messages from people who had come out to their friends or their family. People feeling like, that was their way of gaining their identity and their name back,” she says. “There were also a lot of [stories about] abuse and victims who had come through sexual assault; I would be crying reading some of them.”
Directed by Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore, the video serves as a rallying cry about reclaiming identity, dignity and self-worth in a post-#MeToo era.
“This is a song for everyone who has lost an important part of themselves, which they need to reclaim in order to move forward with their life,” says Meg of the track. “It’s for the women who are standing up and speaking out, those discriminated against in the LGBTQI community, the indigenous people of Australia and the children abused by the church”
Meg is a future global star, breaking out of Australia, signed to (littleBIGMANRecords in Australia) and 300 Entertainment in New York.
