Maddie & Tae release sophomore album 'The Way It Feels'

Platinum-selling duo Maddie & Tae recently unveiled their eagerly awaited album, “The Way It Feels,” via Mercury Nashville. Following two critically acclaimed EPs last year lauded for “impressive fullness to the sound and style” (Billboard) while being “drenched in raw, vulnerable emotion” (American Songwriter), Maddie & Tae shared the final chapter with the release of their 15-song sophomore effort, “filled with glorious songwriting and harmonies” and pegged “an absolute delight” (Associated Press). Entirely co-written by Maddie & Tae with only one outside track rounding out the collection, the album was produced by Derek Wells and Jimmy Robbins and is available here.

Despite having to reschedule their headlining “Tourist In This Town” tour initially set to launch this month (new dates TBA), the duo set several appearances to interact with audiences to kick-off the release.

Tagged as “every bit the prolific and gifted singer-songwriters they were five years ago” (CMT.com), “The Way It Feels” is boldly honest and “highlights a different place in life for the 24-year-old singers” (US Weekly). Anchored by their Gold-certified single “Die From A Broken Heart,” which is inside the Top 25 at country radio with over 170 million streams and “Bathroom Floor,” a standout track MusicRow calls “feisty, rocking, empowering and clever,” the project is rounded-out with five never-before-heard songs. Ranging from the “terrific” (Associated Press) “Write A Book” to raw moments of strength displayed on “Water In His Wine Glass,” the duo’s artistry is on full display as they culminate their journey of love, loss and redemption.

Maddie & Tae first broke out in 2013 with their “Girl In A Country Song,” which took country radio by storm, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and quickly going Platinum. The duo became only the third female duo in 70 years to top the country airplay charts, also earning trophies from the Country Music Academy and Radio Disney Music Awards along with multiple ACM, CMA and CMT Award nominations. Receiving widespread praise from NPR, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post, Glamour and others, country music’s hottest stars including Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice and Brad Paisley have welcomed Maddie & Tae on the road, with the pair set to support Lady Antebellum’s 2020 “Ocean Tour.” For additional information, visit www.maddieandtae.com.
