PREMIERE: Madison Cunningham Is Back To “Pin it Down”

The singer-songwriter and guitar hero from the O.C. will roll out new album Who Are You Now this year.

Madison Cunningham will see you now.

The singer-songwriter is set to return with a new album, Who Are You Now?, due for release on August 16.

Who Are You Now is a question posed by inevitable change,” Cunningham says of the forthcoming full-length. “The transition from childhood to adulthood, as the two merge to form the people we are continually becoming. “Pin It Down” is one piece that makes up this ever-moving mosaic,” she adds about the first single.

It’s a song that many of us can relate to, as we attempt to navigate relationships in the increasingly murky chaos that is the modern world.

“As we find ourselves ‘growing up’ in one way or another, we often fail to notice these changes, only the effects they have on ourselves and those around us,” Cunningham says of the inspiration for her new tune. “Tracking down the source of the change seems nearly impossible, and can leave you helpless. ‘Pin It Down’ plays this feeling of helplessness out in a real-life situation, a conversation between two people who can’t figure out the issue, or choose to ignore it in hopes that it will disintegrate.”

“Pin it Down” arrives with a clever and conceptual music video “meant to depict the gnawing feeling that something about the house is off, misplaced, or wrong, when in fact the character has failed to find the source of discomfort because they have failed to search themselves,” Cunningham reveals. “As it is so often true in life, it is not the house that is changing, it’s the person.” Watch the video below.

Cunningham is taking this new artistic statement to the people for most of 2019, with a slew of live dates lined up and an enviable roster of acts: Andrew Bird, the Calexico + Iron & Wine tour, Amos Lee, and Lake Street Drive. See her full tour itinerary below.
