Los Angeles-based project Drugdealer shares the new single "Madison," their first musical offering since their 2019 album Raw Honey. Led by frontman and primary songwriter Michael Collins, Drugdealer expands on their 1960s and 70s-inspired sonics with the new song, which features a newly discovered vocal range from Collins and pays homage to musicians like Van Morrison and Nick Lowe. "Madison" is the first taste of new music to come from Drugdealer in 2022.
Speaking about the new song, Collins says “"Madison" was the first song I wrote in the period after Raw Honey. I hadn’t been feeling very confident about my voice for a while, when a chance encounter with an older artist, Annette Peacock, happened. She helped change my perspective, and style. She told me I wasn’t singing in my correct range, to modulate it up. She was right and it shifted my perspective on singing.
"Madison" is the first time I felt like I was hearing what I really sounded like, after years of defaulting more towards numerous collaborators who I knew had their voices. It was pretty surreal and I’m really thankful for her advice.”
