Two-time Grammy nominee Madison Cunningham unveils a new song from her highly anticipated new album, Revealer. Listen/share “In From Japan” HERE.

“I think ultimately this song is about being frustrated with the idea of purpose, and burdened by the sweeping questions that come with ‘No one’s holding you back now’ and all of the negative space that is left to make mistakes in,” Cunningham explains. “It very much reflected how I was feeling at the time—only able to speak in metaphors and having a hard time expressing what was so paralyzed in myself.”

“This was eventually recorded up at Flora Recording and Playback in Portland, OR with the great Tucker Martine,” she continues. “These were some of the most special musical memories that found me in a time where I really needed the space to sprawl out and throw paint at everything within sight, and that is exactly what we did.”

Revealer is set for release on September 9 via Verve Forecast. Pre-order/pre-save HERE. Check out the webstore for an exclusive signed splatter vinyl HERE.  

Previously released track “Hospital” reached the #1 Most Added at both AAA and Non Comm radio. 

Revealer finds Cunningham working once again with Mike Elizondo (Twenty One Pilots, Gary Clark Jr.) as well as longtime producer and collaborator Tyler Chester and Tucker Martine (Neko Case, Sufjan Stevens).

“To me, ‘revealer’ is the binding theme of the album,” says Cunningham. “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.” The album is full of confessions, intimations and hard truths—a self-portrait of a young artist who is full of doubt and uncertainty yet bursting with exciting ideas about music and life.

Cunningham’s list of champions continues to grow including Harry Styles, John Mayer, Andrew Bird and Sara Bareilles. The artist first picked up a guitar at age seven, and by age twelve was singing and performing alongside her five siblings in church. By the age of fifteen, Cunningham realized songwriting was a passion she wanted to pursue, citing Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan as key inspirations.
