Madeline Hawthorne’s new album Tales From Late Nights & Long Drives is out everywhere today. The new collection of songs was produced by the famed Ryan Hadlock (Zach Bryan, The Lumineers, Vance Joy) and recorded at Bear Creek Studios near Seattle, WA. Ahead of the release, Hawthorne shared the songs “Night Ride,” “Where Did I Go Wrong,” “Neon Wasteland” and “Chasing The Moon” The album has garnered attention from outlets like MAGNET, Relix, Americana Highways, Bozeman Magazine and more.

This is my record coming out of the pandemic, stepping onto the stage with more miles under my boots. This collection of songs is the result of taking a leap of faith to branch out on my own and give everything I have to a career as a songwriter and performer. It is moments from the pandemic that would in turn shape me into the woman and artist that I am today. It is stepping away from the process that I used to write my album Boots, giving into the moment and the melody to tell a story. The album is me, but not fully. It is like 11 different versions of me; a woman I could have been, a woman that I have perhaps thought I was, and a woman that I hope to be someday. I hope listeners enjoy the journey. Play it in your car this summer while going on your own adventures. Spin that vinyl in your favorite listening room, or blast that record on 11 in your kitchen and dance around the house. Thanks for listening.” - Madeline
