Nashville-based singer-songwriter Madds Buckley has shared “DogBird”, the latest single from her forthcoming album My Love is Sick. The song serves as a follow-up to the album’s title track; with both songs, Madds draws inspiration from her own experiences and shares a vulnerable side that listeners might not have seen before.
“‘DogBird’ is the story of a failing relationship wrapped in the metaphor of a dog loving a bird, and constantly apologizing for following its instincts. A hunting breed still bound to its folk’s leash, and a bird, gentle and free,” Madds Buckley shares with us. “‘DogBird’ is a queer story at its core, about loving someone while fighting your upbringing, but is truly for anyone who’s ever become their own worst fear: hurting the one you love most.”
Madds will be celebrating her new album My Love is Sick with special album release shows this August in Chicago, New York, and Boston. Tickets are on sale now and available at maddsbuckley.com.
