“My mind’s on fire so I ride my bike / I’m riding harder than a hurricane” chants Maude Latour in her new single “Ride My Bike.” Through velvety croons and infectious outbursts of energy, Maude gives us a taste of her ‘runner’s high’ that she experiences through cycling across New York. The video, directed by Tess Lafia, shows Maude in her happy state of flow where she leaves all of her anxieties behind. Watch below:

On the single, Maude shared: “’Ride My Bike’ is based off of a day that I was buzzing with stress and anxiety. I left my phone at home and ran away, hopping on a Citi Bike and riding with full force through Central Park and all across Manhattan. When I finally got home, my parents were furious, claiming that they had called all my friends and were worried sick. I’ve become a bit more considerate about my bike rides, but they remain one of my most sacred activities. When I bike, I feel truly alive. Spinning up and down the hills of Central Park and weaving down the avenues through Manhattan (which is dangerous! I don’t condone – please wear a helmet!) are the moments that bring me sanity. This song captures the sacredness of the freedom that comes from hitting a runner’s high. Please remember to go outside and break a sweat– it’ll remind you that you are so incredibly alive and breathing.”

Maude is currently a freshman at Columbia University where she is majoring in Philosophy and Political Science. She is planning to be the first president to perform at her own inauguration.
