Platinum-Selling Duo Share Journey to Eagerly-Awaited New Music with Associated Press
Platinum-selling duo Maddie & Tae have been seeding fans with tastes of new music signaling a new chapter of fearlessness and sonic maturity, leading critics like Esquire to praise them for “their finest moment yet.” The duo has unveiled details with Associated Press for their upcoming EP One Heart To Another, available April 26th on Mercury Nashville. Featuring five tracks, predominantly co-written by Maddie & Tae’s Maddie Marlow and Taylor Dye, the highly-anticipated project represents stories of love, loss and redemption and is a snapshot of more music to come from the award-winning duo later this year.
“This is much more than just a new project for us. It has been our light at the end of tunnel for the past two years. It is about two best friends experiencing this highest of highs, the lowest of lows, and everything in between together. We hope our fans hear the vulnerability, heart break, strength, truth and passion we’ve poured into this. This is only the beginning,” states Marlow.
“The journey to create this project was long, but beautiful,” adds Dye. “We put our heads down and tried to be the best artists we could be. And to us that looked like writing lyrics from a very honest place and sharing them with the hopes that someone out in the world feels less alone. So here is One Heart to Another. From our hearts to yours.”
“Ushering in the new era” (Billboard), the EP features the flirty “Friends Don’t,” the woeful heartache of “Die From A Broken Heart,” which has tallied over 23 million streams already and “Tourist In This Town,” a song Music Row praises for its “spunk, vocal verve and tempo.” The swaggering kiss-off “New Dog, Old Tricks,” a winking, hip hop-inflected anthem that marks the first outside cut Maddie & Tae has recorded and vulnerable title track “One Heart To Another,” round out the boldly honest collection, which shows “a more sophisticated side” (Associated Press).
Maddie & Tae recently earned a Duo of the Year nomination for the upcoming 54th Academy of Country Music Awards making it their sixth career nomination from the ACM. Tune in April 7th for the broadcast live from Las Vegas on CBS at 8 pm ET/PT. The duo is also gearing up to hit the road as part of Carrie Underwood’s Cry Pretty Tour 360, kicking off May 1st in Greensboro, N.C.
