This music video for her new single, “Wanted”

was shot over two days

on the small Mexican island of Isla Mujeres,

the video showcases Maclean

touring the streets of the city,

and spending time with the local children.

“’Wanted

is about a universal need,

speaking to the child in all of us

that is desperately longing

just to hear somebody tell us we’re wanted.

Somebody to tell us that we’re cherished

and that we belong,”

explained Maclean.

“To not be wanted based on your performance —

We all have those relationships in life

where we are loved based on how good of a friend we are

or how good of a daughter or son, sister or brother we are.

It’s conditional and it never seems to be enough.

This song is calling out to the outcast and saying,

‘You’re not unlovable.

You’re never too far gone —

in your worst moment,

in your loneliest moment,

you are still wanted,

just as much as the person that seemingly has it all together,

is loved by everyone and looks to have this perfect life.’

The baby that opens its eyes for the first time

and the hardened criminal

that gets sent to jail for the millionth time,

does God want one more, or less?

We are all the same,

we are all in need of Jesus

and we are all desperately wanted

by a Father that won’t stop until

He finds every child that is lost.”

Psalms 139:7-10

“Where can I go from Your Spirit?

Or where can I flee from Your presence?

If I ascend into heaven,

You are there;

If I make my bed in hell,

behold,

You are there.

If I take the wings of the morning,

And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

Even there

Your hand shall lead me,

And Your right hand shall hold me.”

 “I’ve been on the edge of my seat waiting to share with you my friends,

the ones that have been such a support and on this journey with me,

the heartbeat behind the song

and ultimately, this record,”

continues Maclean.

“My prayer is that every note reveals

the heart of God the Father

and that His Love does what it always does.

It heals, restores and makes new again.”

From the day you were born
And took your first breath
You opened your eyes and in came the light
He was watching you
But all of your life you couldn’t shake the lies in your head
Saying you’re a mistake
Oh, but you were made
By a God who knows your name
He doesn’t make mistakes

You are wanted
To every broken heart, He stands with open arms
You are wanted
To every searching soul, look to the rising sun
If you’re lonely, hurting, gone too far
To the outcast you come as you are
For you, you are wanted, you, you are wanted
You, you are wanted, you, you are wanted

Let this be the day that joy takes the place
Of all of the years that shame tried to steal away
He is calling you
Lift your eyes to see His face
Come run into the arms of grace

You, you have been marked
You’re set apart
And He calls you His
So you don’t have to search
Don’t have to look for where you belong

You are wanted!!!
