Madeline Hawthorne has shared “Night Ride,”  the third song to be shared off her forthcoming album Tales From Late Nights & Long Drives. “Night Ride” instantly intoxicates as she urges, “Roll me up like a joint and smoke me.” She remembers, “It’s about the time I had with my husband during the pandemic. It’s rare we get that much time together without a million things to do. It was a silver lining to an incredibly challenging period.”

“Night Ride” follows the releases of “Where Did I Go Wrong,” “Neon Wasteland” and  “Chasing The Moon.”

Hawthorne’s new album Tales From Late Nights & Long Drives is due out everywhere on June 14 and was produced by the famed Ryan Hadlock (Zach Bryan, The Lumineers,  Vance Joy) and recorded at Bear Creek Studios near Seattle, WA.  Pre-orders for the album, and merch exclusives are available HERE.

This summer, Madeline will tour the Northwest and Rocky Mountains, making stops at venues and iconic festivals like Live Oak, High Sierra, Under The Big Sky and more.  She also recently landed a supporting slot for Paul Cauthen on July 19.

Obsessed with music since her childhood on the East Coast, Madeline planted roots in Bozeman, MT during college and never turned back. She honed her talents through countless backup and band gigs before going solo amid the Global Pandemic. Balancing Americana, roots, folk, and rock, she introduced herself on the 2021 LP, Boots, co-produced by Brad Parsons and Tyler Thompson in Pittsburgh. In between, she shared the stage with everyone from Jason Isbell, Lukas Nelson, Josh Turner, and Kip Moore to Sierra Hull, John Craigie, and Nathaniel Rateliff. Plus, she wowed audiences at festivals such as Treefort Music Festival (ID), Americanafest (TN), WinterWonderGrass (CO), Pak City Song Summit (UT), Roseberry Music Festival, (ID), and more. Earning acclaim for tracks like 2023’s “Neon Wasteland,” Relix applauded her “powerful and unbridled singles.” Beyond features from,, and more, No Depression also raved, “She’s been crushing rootsy tunes.”
