Rising UK singer-songwriter Maddox Jones follows up his debut EP (Headspace) with a heartwarming new single, “World’s Gone Mad”. Written with Mikey Austin-Riley and David Crawford at the start of the first U.K. lockdown, “World’s Gone Mad” is the much needed comfort song for many stuck at home this winter, a reminder of those life affirming hugs so many of us have missed this year. Co-produced by Billy Lockett and Louis Souyave, the song is a heartfelt love-letter, expressing a realization that many of us have been experiencing this year: the importance of our relationships with our family, friends and loved ones. Combining a beautifully catchy chorus and piano hook with Maddox’s voice, the track has all the nostalgic reminiscence of an early Coldplay record.
“The song is about being there for each-other in these crazy times. We’ve obviously been going through a lot this year and I think what’s really kept it all together is having your friends around or having your partner and just holding each-other up.” – Maddox Jones
