Platinum-selling duoÂ Maddie & TaeÂ have been seeding fans with tastes of new music signaling a new chapter of fearlessness and sonic maturity, leadingÂ critics likeÂ EsquireÂ toÂ praise themÂ for â€œtheir finest moment yet.â€ The duoÂ unveiled details today withÂ Associated PressÂ for their upcoming EPÂ One Heart To Another, availableÂ April 26Â on Mercury Nashville. Featuring five tracks, predominantly co-written by Maddie & Taeâ€™s Maddie Marlow and Taylor Dye, theÂ highly-anticipated project represents stories of love, loss andÂ redemption and is a snapshot of more music to come fromÂ the award-winning duo later this year. Preview the EPÂ here.
“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 the highest of highs,Â the lowest of lows, and everything in between together. We hope our fans hear the vulnerability, heart break, strength, truth and passion weâ€™ve poured into this. This is only theÂ beginning,â€ said Marlow.
“The journey to create this project was long, but beautiful,â€ added 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 veryÂ honest place and sharing them with the hopes that someone out in the world feels less alone. So here isÂ One Heart to Another. From our hearts to yours.”
â€œUshering in the new eraâ€ (Billboard), the EP features the flirtyÂ â€œFriendsÂ Donâ€™t,â€ the woeful heartache of â€œDie From A Broken Heart,â€ which has tallied over 23 million streams already and â€œTourist In This Town,â€ a songÂ Music RowÂ praises for itsÂ â€œspunk, vocal verve and tempo.â€ The swaggering kiss-off â€œNew Dog, Old Tricks,â€ a winking, hip hop-inflected anthem that marks the first outside cut Maddie & Tae hasÂ recordedÂ and vulnerable title trackÂ â€œOne Heart To Another,â€ round out the boldly honest collection,Â which shows “a more sophisticated sideâ€ (Associated Press).
