Video: Oklahoma-Texas duo Maddie & Tae releases new EP 'One Heart to Another'
Platinum-selling Oklahoma-Texas duo Maddie & Tae are “setting the stage for a bright journey” (Sounds Like Nashville) with their eagerly-awaited new EP "One Heart To Another" available today via Mercury Nashville.
Featuring five tracks, predominantly co-written by Maddie & Tae - Maddie Marlow of Sugar Land, Texas, and Taylor Dye of Ada - and produced by Jimmy Robbins and Derek Wells, the highly-anticipated project represents stories of love, loss and redemption. Available HERE, the collection serves as a snapshot of more music to come from the award-winning duo later this year, according to a news release.
To accompany the new EP, the "Girl in a Country Song" hitmakers also released today the lyric video for the title track.
As previously reported, "One Heart to Another" offers the appealing lead-off single “Friends Don’t,” the quickly applauded new single “Die From A Broken Heart,” touting 36 million streams and fresh at country radio following undeniable fan and critical demand, and the recently released “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 collection, which shows “a more sophisticated side” (Associated Press).
“The amount of gratitude I feel towards our fans is indescribable,” said Marlow in a statement. “We’ve waited four long years to release new music, and so have they. This EP is not only a collection of songs to us, but a reminder that dedication, passion, and perseverance always pays off. This feels so surreal, and it’s only the beginning.”
“This collection of songs is our unfiltered story and we’re so proud to tell it,” adds Dye. “Over the past couple of years, we’ve experienced love, pain, redemption and everything in between. And we wouldn’t change a thing.”
Also as previously reported, the duo is gearing up to hit the road as part of Checotah native Carrie Underwood’s "Cry Pretty Tour 360," kicking off Thursday in Greensboro, North Carolina. The trek will include a Sept. 25 show at Oklahoma City’s Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W Reno, and an Oct. 24 engagement at Tulsa’s BOK Center, 200 S Denver.
