Maddie & Tae can finally share the second installment of Through The Madness, a collection of songs that aim to serve as “beacons of hope” through challenging times, no matter what listeners are going through.

Through The Madness Vol. 2 made its debut on Friday (September 23), following the first volume that released in January. Maddie & Tae’s latest 8-track EP includes previously-released tracks “Every Night Every Morning” and “Spring Cleaning,” among others that are sure to become quick fan-favorites. The award-winning duo’s Maddie Font exclusively confirmed the project’s release date to iHeartCountry earlier this year, and noted that two of the tracks would release ahead of the full EP:

“All of these songs were written – no pun intended – through the madness of the past couple of years,” Font said in a statement shared by the duo’s record label on Thursday afternoon (September 22). “And I feel like all of these songs are kind of little beacons of hope that even in the hard times and just through it all, that there is still hope and there’s still good things to look forward to. So, yeah, I love that all of these songs belong together.”

Font’s duo partner, Taylor Kerr, added that she hopes “that fans feel seen and loved and encouraged on whatever walk they are walking through. I think this volume has a song for everybody, hopefully to get them through their days.”
