Pop sensation Madison Beer releases her highly anticipated debut album, Life Support, including new anthem, Blue. It’s catchy and unique in sound. The lyrics are carefully crafted, it pushes the boundaries of accepted lyrical norms from female singer songwriters in pop in the same way as Rina Sawayama’s SAWAYAMA or Hayley Williams’ Petals For Armor do. Strong vocals drift over a production, packed with great melodies and uplifting choruses.

“Writing songs is like therapy for me.” says Madison Beer. “That’s why this album is called Life Support. It helped me get rid of the darkness and see the light. My inspirations sonically are really diverse. I guess I’m not an easy artist to pigeonhole, and a lot of these songs are like nothing I’ve ever attempted before. All of me is laid bare on this album; it’s been a really fulfilling experience to create something that feels so true to myself. Making music taught me a safe way of being vulnerable. It forced me to put my feelings into words, to hold a mirror up to myself and translate that into something tangible. There was a time in my life where the promise of going to the studio was the only thing getting me out of bed in the morning. I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s my lifeline. I can put something into a song and then let it go, send it out into the world. When fans tell me I’ve put a voice to something they’ve been feeling, it’s as affirming for me as it is for them.”

Madison brings music that’s innovative and fresh to the scene. She conveys a message of inspiration. Blue is brilliantly produced, one of the most creative songs of February. Listen below!
