Today, rising independent pop singer-songwriter Madison Beer released ‘Dear Society’, the first single off her debut album, due out this summer. The catchy single, co-written by Madison, is accompanied by a vintage, yet futuristic video, co-directed by The Young Astronauts and Madison. ‘Dear Society’ explores the constant pressure to be perfect in today’s society.
“’ Dear Society’ is my letter to our culture expressing the pressure I feel from everyday life in today’s world.” Says Madison. “I know this is such a common struggle for so many people in my generation and I want this song to be an anthem for my fans so they know they are not alone; we are all in this struggle together.” Shot with a grainy, vintage aesthetic, the video mix’s elements of cult thrillers and psychological horror as it subtly shares the songs deeper message about the harmful effects of societal pressure.
Recorded in LA, Madison wrote ‘Dear Society’ with Elizabeth Lowell Boland, Leroy Clampitt, Timothy Sommers, and Jeremy Dussoliet. It is produced by Big Taste and One Love. Recognized by Billboard on their 2018 “21 Under 21” roster of the most promising young talents in music, Madison proves that she is in control and has never been more confident as an artist. ‘Dear Society’ follows Madison’s ‘Hurts Like Hell’ ft. Offset, (which has amassed 115 million+ streams), and debut EP ‘As She Pleases’, (which has amassed 500 million+ streams), released in 2018. After selling out her first ever European and US headline tour last spring, Madison will hit the road again, both in the US and Europe, this fall.
