Maddie & Tae (writing Die From a Broken Heart) OC: (Maddie) …special here. :39
TAE: “We wrote ‘Die from a Broken Heart’ two weeks after an actual break up that I had gone through. But I’m so, I don’t know. It’s hard for me to really dig into my emotions in the midst of my emotions. I’m more of like an after the point, and then I can kind of revisit it and work through everything. But I turned off my emotions for the most part during that writing session just to look at it from a logical and practical standpoint, just so that I wasn’t a mess during writing it. But that was probably the hardest one just because I felt everything that the song says.” MADDIE: “I knew she did not want to write a breakup song that day, but I was like ‘there’s something so special here.”
