Madison Cunningham has shared her latest single “Hospital” from her newly-announced studio album Revealer, set for release on September 9 via Verve Forecast and Universal Music Canada.
The track arrives alongside a music video directed by Caitlin Gerard in which Cunningham finds herself trapped in a dollhouse, roaming a beach with an IV attached, hitchhiking, and more – all through an exploration of the depths of her own psyche.
“Hospital is written from this sort of half awake, slightly drunken, on the cusp of a nervous breakdown perspective,” Cunningham explained in a statement. “I think ultimately it speaks to the impossible condition of being sedated with information and trying to hold onto your sanity.” The singer continues to cite Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan as key inspirations for her music.
“Hospital” joins the previously released single “Anywhere” as the lead singles to Revealer. The album is said to build itself around internal explorations and confessions that address doubt and uncertainty through the lens of a young artist figuring out life and music as she goes along.
“To me, ‘revealer’ is the binding theme of the album,” Cunningham shared. “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.”
This fall, Cunningham will perform dozens of shows on her headlining tour in support of Revealer. Tickets are on sale now via the official Madison Cunningham website.
