Maddie Marlow and Taylor Dye, known as Maddie & Tae, are gearing up to release their new EP, “One Heart to Another,” this Friday. The five-song collection features “Friends Don’t,” “Tourist in This Town,” “New Dogs Old Tricks,” the title track and their brand-new single, “Die From a Broken Heart.” The anticipated project, mainly co-written by the two, represents stories of love, loss and redemption, and is more than just a new offering from the duo.
“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, heartbreak, strength, truth and passion we’ve poured into this. This is only the beginning,” Maddie said. “Just going through what all we’ve been through to make all this music and to get here and to finally have it all coming together is surreal, and we’ve waited for this for so long. But, just telling on myself, I started getting teary-eyed when I saw the cover of the ‘One Heart to Another’ EP, because I was like, ‘Omigosh! It’s actually happening. This is not a false alarm! This is the real thing! ’”
The duo is gearing up to hit the road as part of Carrie Underwood’s “Cry Pretty Tour 360,” kicking off May 1 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The two are also featured on the soundtrack for the new film “Breakthrough,” with a song called “People Need People,” which they co-wrote with songwriter Jimmy Robbins. The soundtrack is available now.
