Background[edit]

Talking to Polish pop culture magazine Luvpop about the album's title, Anne-Marie said: "I just feel like that's what I did on the album. I'm not a shy person anyway, I speak my mind a lot and I am not... I don't hold anything in, I am honest with people and open. And I've just feel that's what I've been like on this album, so it kinda makes sense."[6]

Singles[edit]

"Alarm" was released as the lead single from Speak Your Mind on 20 May 2016.[7] The single became Anne-Marie's first major worldwide hit, peaking at No. 16 on the UK Singles Chart.[8] The single additionally reached the top 20 in as Australia and Scotland, as well as the top 40 in seven countries.[9][10] It was certified Platinum in the UK, Australia, and Poland,[11][12][13] and Gold in the US and Canada.[14][15] The music video for the song, also released on 20 May 2016, was directed by Malia James and filmed in Mexico City. It is loosely inspired by Baz Luhrmann's 1996 film Romeo + Juliet.[16]

"Ciao Adios" was released as the second official single on 10 February 2017. The single became her first top ten hit in the UK, reaching No. 9, while also reaching the top ten in Belgium, Netherlands, Poland, and Scotland.[17] The single had moderate success elsewhere. The "Ciao Adios" music video was released on 9 March 2017 on YouTube and features Anne-Marie with her girl gang dancing in Marrakech, Morocco with plenty of colors.[18]

"Heavy" was released on 22 September 2017 as the third single from the record.[19] It failed to replicate the success of "Alarm" and "Ciao Adios", reaching the top 40 in the UK, and only charting in a couple other territories.[20] The music video for "Heavy" was released on 16 October 2017.[21]

"Then" was released on 15 December 2017 as the fourth single.[22] The single reached No. 87 in the UK charts.[23]

In the visual, Anne-Marie and a group of female friends host a house party. Marshmello keeps avoiding being asked to leave. However, as Anne-Marie attempts to kick him out, he keeps finding ways to get back into the house, which annoys Anne-Marie and her friends.[29]
