Nashville-based singer-songwriter Madi Diaz has shared a new single titled ‘New Person, Old Place’. Co-produced by Diaz and Andrew Sarlo, the track arrives with an accompanying video directed by $eck. Watch it below.
Talking about the new song, Diaz explained in a statement:
This was a moment I realized I wanted to start to learn how to do it not better, not worse, but just different… and then something shifted. Something in my heart finally knocked loose and I was breathing deeper. It’s hard as hell, breaking patterns and unlearning all the old shit, trying to shut all the doors that I used to open to let all the same hurt happen over and over. I’m at least learning to find new doors. ‘New Person Old Place’ is a mantra. A line that I’m casting into the future so that I have something to guide me forward. It’s something of a reminder that if my heart is the house that I carry with me wherever I go, I can take it somewhere new, or I can do the same old thing I always do but backwards or with a cartwheel, and I can repaint and I can rearrange the furniture. I can clean the mirrors so I see myself true and clear.
‘New Person, Old Place’ follows Madi Diaz’s ‘Man In Me’, which came out last month and landed on our Best New Songs segment.
