Maddie & Tae

Current ACM Awards Duo of the Year nominees Maddie & Tae unveiled the official music video for “Bathroom Floor” today on CMT and on Viacom’s Times Square billboard. The video for the song “everyone needs to hear” (Seventeen), featured on the pair’s upcoming sophomore album THE WAY IT FEELS out on April 10th, also premiered across all CMT platforms – watch HERE.

Picking up where acclaimed music video “Die From A Broken Heart” left off, which had the best first week video debut by a country female act in 2019 and is approaching the Top 30 at country radio, “Bathroom Floor” opens with the same characters chronicled throughout last year’s “revealing” (PEOPLE) video. In the brand new video for the song Billboard describes as “a somber tale of a girl struggling following a split, the upbeat music and the duo’s powerhouse vocals help convince a friend to ‘get up off the bathroom floor,’” Maddie Marlow and Taylor Dye succeed in the ultimate girls’ night out, healing heartbreak and moving forward with blasts of confidence and moxie.

Award-winning duo Maddie & Tae are drawing praise for their new music “anchored around their stellar vocal pairings and some of the tightest harmonies on Music Row” (Rolling Stone) with a “sound that’s identifiable while still representing a distinct step forward” (Billboard). Their highly anticipated sophomore album THE WAY IT FEELS is set to release on April 10 (Mercury Nashville), featuring the GOLD-certified single “Die From A Broken Heart.” Maddie & Tae first broke out in 2013 with their brilliant “Girl In A Country Song,” which took Country radio by storm, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and quickly going PLATINUM. The duo became only the third female duo in 70 years to top the Country Airplay charts, also earning trophies from the Country Music Academy and Radio Disney Music Awards along with multiple ACM, CMA and CMT Award nominations. Receiving widespread praise from NPR, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post, Glamour and others, country music’s hottest stars including Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice and Brad Paisley have welcomed Maddie & Tae on the road, with the pair set to support Lady Antebellum’s 2020 OCEAN TOUR following their headlining TOURIST IN THIS TOWN TOUR.

Audio / Maddie & Tae talk about writing the song, “Bathroom Floor.”


Maddie & Tae (Bathroom Floor) OC: (Tae) …exactly. 1:33
MADDIE: “It was a crazy day because we, I was having a really, really rough emotional day the day we wrote ‘Bathroom Floor.’ I had some just crazy stuff going on in my personal life, and so I walked into the writing room bawling crying for something totally separate, and we wrote a song about that. And it was super somber and just really therapeutic, and then after it was just such a healing experience and we were thinking about this. I had this title ‘Bathroom Floor’ for probably a year, and I texted Tae and I was like ‘Hey, I wanna write Bathroom Floor with you and Josh one day. I think it’s gonna be a really sad, somber song.’ That’s how I envisioned it at first, and then that day for some reason, we had already written this really, really sad somber song, and then we kind of started talking about Bathroom Floor, and I was like I’ve always wanted to write that with y’all. And Josh kind of started this groove that made it sound like, happy, and we were like oh my gosh, this could be a really empowering anthem type of song. ‘Cause we hadn’t written that yet. ‘New Dogs, Old Tricks’ was kind of our girl anthem before Bathroom Floor, and now it’s like we finally wrote our redemption song ourselves, which is a really powerful moment for us but we kind of tapped into experiences both of us had had. We got really drunk in Jamaica one time and were on the bathroom floor ,and then my bachelorette party I was really on the bathroom floor. Oof. It’s kind of just a song to hopefully empower women that are going through the ‘Die From a Broken Heart’ phase, to go, ‘Hey, bathroom floor’s right here, girl. You gotta go live it up.” TAE: “Silver lining, it’s coming.” MADDIE: “Yes.”
