Madeline Kenney – “I Drew A Line”

Madeline Kenney – “I Drew A Line”

Last month, Madeline Kenney announced a new album, A New Reality Mind, with the lead single “Superficial Conversation.” Her follow-up to 2020’s Sucker’s Lunch is out at the end of July, and today she’s sharing another new track from the album, the grooving and multifaceted “I Drew A Line.”

“I’ve been thinking a lot about the stories I tell myself to keep plodding along, and how those stories can obfuscate certain realities,” Kenney said in a statement, continuing:

Stories not only set limits but also set us up for the most frightening awakening when life starts to contradict the story. When I went through a breakup I realized that the story I had been living out was much different in the plain light of day than what I had constructed out of fantasy. I think it’s very human to tell stories, and I think it can protect us, but what if we don’t need protection? What purpose does the story serve then?
