Spring may have come and gone, but that isn’t stopping Country duo Maddie & Tae from cleaning house!
The duo recently released the music video for their new song, “Spring Cleaning,” which is set to be included on their new, 8-track album, Through The Madness Vol. 2, releasing September 23.
During a recent interview with Audacy’s Rob + Holly, the duo revealed that organization expert, Marie Kondo, served up the original inspiration for the song.
“I was reading that book, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up [by Marie Kondo], and I was like, ‘How would you do that to a person or and ex, or somebody you don’t want in your life anymore?’” Maddie said of the initial inspiration for the song.
She added, “I had this bizarre idea to Marie Kondo somebody… And we came up with ‘Spring Cleaning’ and it was so fun.”
The track is the latest peek at the duo’s forthcoming album, Through The Madness Vol. 2, which arrives one week after the pair kicks off their headlining CMT Next Women of Country Tour Presents: All Song No Static Tour.
Touring looks different for the duo now since Tae is a Mom, but according to them, it’s been a smooth adjustment for baby Leighton Grace, who arrived months before her due date.
“She has already been on the road with us more than a couple time,” said Tae. “She’s like the most well-traveled baby ever. We’re trying to figure out if she’s broken the record for County fairs — we’ll see. She’s just the most chill baby, she’s very adaptable, which I think how she came into the world plays a lot into it. She’s just here to hang.”
Maddie & Tae’s All Song No Static Tour kicks off September 15 in Oklahoma City and runs through mid-October, wrapping in Grand Rapids, MI on October 15.
