Madi Diaz has today released a new single called ‘Hangover’, which arrives ahead of her performance at Newport Folk Festival as well as two shows opening for Harry Styles in August. Check out a Joey Broadnax-directed video for it below.
“I wrote ‘Hangover’ with Jesse Thomas and Drew Pearson when I was still feeling the lagging throws of heartbreak – the waking up in withdrawal, aching, reeling over a person and all the things that come after it’s over,” Diaz explained in a statement. “Sometimes it feels like you’re just stumbling around a city and in every corner there’s a memory. At every table in every restaurant some argument, on every street corner some kiss, at the 7 eleven some melt down. ‘Hangover’ is about bumping into that old feeling and reliving the less appealing side effects of not being in love with that person anymore.”
Diaz said she could only describe the accompanying visual “as full immersion light therapy. Joey conjured these huge flashing screens towering around me, making a space for me to get lost in performance and really feel every heartbeat of the song. We were in a world inside of a world. With 2 generators and 42 feet of LED walls, I’m sure it looked like we were throwing a mini warped tour in my backyard.”
Diaz’s most recent album, History Of A Feeling, came out last year on ANTI-. Check out our Artist Spotlight interview with Madi Diaz.
