Madi Diaz has announced the release of her new album ‘History Of A Feeling’, which is due to arrive later this year.
The Nashville-based singer-songwriter’s new album, which she started working on three years ago with co-producer Andrew Sarlo, pulls from a range of folk, country and pop influences, such as Patty Griffin, Lori McKenna, PJ Harvey and Kathleen Hanna.
According to a press release, the album will hear Diaz cycle “through the full spectrum of emotions as she comes to terms with the dissolution of a meaningful relationship”.
“The bulk of this music came from dealing with a kind of tsunami clash of compassion, both for my former partner while she was discovering a deeper part of her gender identity long hidden, and my own raw heartache over having lost the partner I knew,” Diaz said in a statement.
She continued: “I felt so torn through the middle because half of me wanted to hold this person through such a major life event, one that is so beautiful and hard, and the other half felt lost—like I had lost myself in someone else’s story.”
Set to be released on August 27 via ANTI, you can pre-order ‘History Of A Feeling’ here.

Diaz has accompanied the announcement with the release of a new single, ‘Woman In My Heart’, which she has said “came out in a sort of waking dream” while she “was actively learning how to part with someone”.
“It was hard enough not to miss/hurt/hate/fight/fuck/feel/get over them, and, what was even harder, was the love we had felt more and more like a mystery and the pain was the only thing coming in clear,” Diaz added.
It follows the release of recent singles ‘Nervous’, ‘New Person, Old Place’, and ‘Man In Me’.
