Madi Diaz has shared the latest single from her upcoming album, a duet with Kacey Musgraves called ‘Don’t Do Me Good’. Following Weird Faith‘s lead single ‘Same Risk’, the track features album co-producers Sam Cohen (bass) and Konrad Snyder (percussion), as well as the Walkmen’s Matt Barrick (drums, percussion). Check out its Elizabeth Olmstead-directed video below.
“I wanted this song to feel like calling your friend,” Diaz explained in a statement. “That moment of needing to commiserate and to have that person say ‘yeah, I’ve been there’ and share that experience with you.” She added:
I am so happy Kacey said ‘yes’ when I asked her to sing on ‘Don’t Do Me Good.’ This song would have been so awfully lonely without her and I am so grateful I get to hear her voice on this with mine.
This song is about that person that we keep coming back to, no matter how many times they let us down. It’s about waking up every day and making the choice to love a person unconditionally while it’s simultaneously getting harder and harder to ignore that nothing is getting better in the relationship. It’s stubborn, it’s defiant, it’s hopeful, and it’s aggressively optimistic. It’s about being a bit of a masochist and being so in love with the hard work of loving a person that you don’t know how to walk away from them.
