Madeline Kenney Announces New Album ‘Sucker’s Lunch’ & Releases First Single ‘Sucker’

May 19, 2020 10:53 am

Big news! Madeline Kenney is releasing a new album called Sucker’s Lunch – out July 31st! Today, we get to hear the first single, ‘Sucker’, and its music video, premiering on the The Fader. Watch the video HERE.

Pre-order the album & listen to the new single HERE

“When I lived in Durham, I found myself sitting in the sun on the porch with a musical hero of mine, who was worried about losing their healthcare and not being able to afford to tour,” Kenney said in an email to The FADER. “It blew my mind and broke my heart that such a genius had to struggle with uncertainty in trying to make their art. I wrote ‘Sucker’ when I realized that all of us continue to make art, and fall in love, and attempt things that logically could fall apart at any moment, but we are fools for the game and keep producing, keep pursuing. I asked Kurt Wagner to sing on the track because I feel like he is consistently brave in his songwriting (and I’m a HUGE Lambchop fan). When he sent me the stems, I drank a martini and cried.”

Madeline Kenney announces new 7″ split with Flock of Dimes

February 11, 2019 11:22 am

Jenn Wasner (of Flock of Dimes, Wye Oak) and Madeline Kenney have come together yet again; this time to release a 7″ split. Get a first listen of the songs via Stereogum’s premiere! “The Sisters / Helpless” will become available on all streaming services tomorrow + you can pre-order the limited edition 7″ via the Carpark shop or grab a copy on tour.

Madeline Kenney on working with Jenn: “Some strange twists of fate and good fortune put me in the orbit of Jenn Wasner’s musical genius for the entirety of 2018. Even after making a record, going on several tours together, and moving into the same house for a time, we just couldn’t bear the thought of our creative collaboration ending. We put these two songs together on the same piece of plastic — a kind of mirroring of how our musicality and personalities are truly two unique sides of the same coin.”

TOUR DATES
April 23rd – Los Angeles, CA – Moroccan Lounge
April 24th – San Francisco, CA – Swedish American Hall
April 27th – Seattle, WA – Fremont Abbey
April 28th – Portland, OR – Mississippi Studios

Madeline Kenney shares title-track from “Perfect Shapes”

October 1, 2018 4:59 pm

Madeline Kenney breaks down the meaning behind the name of her new album, Perfect Shapes. Check out the exclusive interview, along with the title-track, via Billboard.

“The phrase Perfect Shapes made me think of my own experience as a woman. We’re expected to be a ‘perfect shape’ in the media — there’s the idea of perfection or beauty, but inherently the ability to have children, that is something objectively I would consider is perfect. [It’s] like expectation to be something perfect when we already are.”

~~Album out this Friday. Pre-orders available now.~~

Madeline Kenney shares third single, “Bad Idea”

September 12, 2018 11:55 am

Madeline Kenney just shared the third cut from her forthcoming record, Perfect Shapes, out October 5th. check out the stunning, yet trippy, lyric video for “Bad Idea” via Consequence of Sound.

“The track winds tightly around taut synth lines, breathing and shrinking over a deceptively buoyant bass. Leaning more towards a dream pop feel than the previous singles, ‘Bad Idea’ finds Kenney wading through her own subconscious to reach conclusions for which she wasn’t even aware she was searching.”

Pre-orders are available on the Carpark shop. The limited LP will be pressed on coke bottle green vinyl, and will include a 12 x 12 lyric sheet, plus a digital download card. First 70 physical pre-orders will come with a unique 11×17 riso poster. You can also listen to the track across all streaming services.
