Two-time Grammy nominee Madison Cunningham today unveils a new song from her highly anticipated new album, Revealer. Listen/share ‘In From Japan’ HERE.
“I think ultimately this song is about being frustrated with the idea of purpose, and burdened by the sweeping questions that come with ‘No one’s holding you back now’ and all of the negative space that is left to make mistakes in,” Cunningham explains. “It very much reflected how I was feeling at the time—only able to speak in metaphors and having a hard time expressing what was so paralyzed in myself.”
“This was eventually recorded up at Flora Recording and Playback in Portland, OR with the great Tucker Martine,” she continues. “These were some of the most special musical memories that found me in a time where I really needed the space to sprawl out and throw paint at everything within sight, and that is exactly what we did.”
Revealer is set for release on 9th September. Pre-order/pre-save HERE.
Cunningham previously released track ‘Hospital’ from Revealer. Watch the recently released new performance video HERE.
Revealer finds Cunningham working once again with Mike Elizondo (Twenty One Pilots, Gary Clark Jr.) as well as longtime producer and collaborator Tyler Chester and Tucker Martine (Neko Case, Sufjan Stevens).
“To me, ‘revealer’ is the binding theme of the album,” says Cunningham. “The hand that slowly chips away at the mirror in which you see yourself and the world and replaces it with the reflection that is most true.” The album is full of confessions, intimations and hard truths—a self-portrait of a young artist who is full of doubt and uncertainty yet bursting with exciting ideas about music and life.
The Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter is fresh off the heels of a successful 2021 which found her opening for Harry Styles at his sold-out Madison Square Garden shows, writing an original song ‘Broken Harvest’ for NPR Morning Edition’s Song Project and later performing the song on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”
