"Give Me More" is a song by British singer Tara McDonald. It was serviced to radio independently by Tara McDonald and her management team without a record label. The song was immediately playlisted by NRJ radio in France and Belgium leading to many record labels offering McDonald contracts. McDonald signed to Mercury Records and the song was officially released in 2012. Lyrically, the song discusses a sexual theme with much innuendo. The music video for "Give Me More" was released on through McDonald's Youtube channel. It was directed by Alex Ubeda and Tao Zemzemi.


Recording and release

McDonald co-wrote "Give Me More" with Maegan Cottone, Luciana Caporaso and Nick Clow and the song's producers Jerome Riouffreyt and Andras Vleminck. The song was recorded in Riouffreyt's home studio in Berlin and mixed by Grammy award winning mix engineer Wes Clarke in London.

Music video

The music video was officially released on McDonald's Youtube channel on 1 May 2012, directed by Alexandre Ubeda and TAO ZEMZEMI with editing & visual effects by DiX-STREECT. McDonald asked Alexandre Ubeda to direct the video after working together with Playboy France and also when he directed her in the "Dymanite" video, her collaboration with Sydney Samson. The video was shot at a private house in Paris owned by Paolo Calia (who was also the set designer for Italian director Fellini). McDonald was the first artist allowed to film in Paolo's house; he also appears in the music video around the table.


The video centralises around three themes: "give me more money", "give me more food" and "give me more sex". The look is inspired by Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland (2010 film) as McDonald is a massive fan of the director and McDonald wanted a theatrical video which is bright, humorous but also with a bizarre dark edge. The opening shot of the clip begins at a large table shot in black and white. McDonald falls asleep and wakes in an almost technicolored world full of interesting characters.
