GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter and performer Anderson East returns to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” today to perform his new song “Madelyn.” Watch/share HERE.

“Madelyn” is from East’s widely acclaimed new album, Maybe We Never Die, which is out now on Elektra/Low Country Sound—stream/purchase HERE. Collaborating once again with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb along with longtime bandleader and now co-producer Philip Towns, Maybe We Never Die takes the Alabama born, Nashville-based artist’s seductively vintage voice in a decidedly fresh direction. The 12 tracks flow together with an overarching sense of urgency but maintain distinct musical boundaries.

In celebration of the new music, East recently performed on “CBS Saturday Morning” as part of their “Saturday Sessions” series and is currently in the midst of his extensive “Maybe We Never Die” headline tour. Upcoming stops include Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium (two nights, one sold-out), Denver’s Gothic Theatre, Minneapolis’ Fine Line, Chicago’s Vic Theatre, Atlanta’s Variety Playhouse, New York’s Webster Hall, Philadelphia’s Union Transfer and Boston’s Paradise among many others.

Critical acclaim for Maybe We Never Die

“‘80s pop-infused elixir…his hefty vocals seem only more urgent in this subdued setting, evoking the raw desire that accompanies new love”—NPR Music

“mixes immersive, polished production with the easygoing soul of his voice”—Rolling Stone

“a timeless quality that sounds like something out of the 60’s, but at the same time, you’ve never heard anything like it.”—Southern Living

Maybe We Never Die is fit for dancing through the end of the world”—Forbes

“allows for East’s enviable vocals to shine…Maybe We Never Die explores uncharted sonic territory while intentionally honing his craft as a storyteller and songwriter” —American Songwriter

“East’s effortlessly smooth vocals still take the spotlight, but this time they feel elevated further by this richer, intricately crafted soundscape.”—Nashville Scene

“East chooses to eschew the tried-and-true in favor of new textures and sonic influences that take him away from straightforward roots-based music and into the realm of ’80s and ’90s R&B…he pulls this shift off with aplomb.”—No Depression

“Mixing classic undertones and an energy rush, the Alabama native blends smoky R&B and soul with a sleek modernity, and a seductive strut”—Nashville Lifestyles

“His bluesy, evocative voice has an old soul quality that is perfect for bringing these heartfelt songs to life.”—Sounds Like Nashville

“strong ’90s neo-soul, hip-hop energy”—Westword

“a real-deal talent. And a legit threat (voice, looks, presence) to be a major star”—

“The heaviness of the synths crashing up against the more organic instrumentation, the crickets chirping into the night, and the rawness of East’s voice, makes the whole thing bigger and brighter…to take such an intimate and undefinable feeling and make it tangible, as if you were there, is magical.”—Atwood Magazine

“a body of work that is both intricate and intimate”—Pulse Music Magazine

Reflecting on the album, East shares, “I wanted to create something unique with this record. A piece of music, that as a whole, knew where its footing was but yet still attempted to see what was behind the curtains. I’m very proud of what it took to make and its ultimate outcome. I am very grateful to the wonderfully talented humans that lent their gifts to make it what it is.”

Maybe We Never Die is East’s first new music since 2018’s breakthrough album, Encore, which featured the Grammy-nominated #1 AAA radio single, “All On My Mind.” Heralded by critics, The New York Times praised Encore as, “…an often lustrous revisiting of raucous Southern soul, rousingly delivered and pinpoint precise. He has a voice full of extremely careful scrape and crunch, but his howls never feel unhinged,” while Rolling Stone declared, “On Encore, East’s influences meld seamlessly, stacking the album with Stax-worthy R&B grooves, gospel-blues ooohs and aaahs, surging keys and blasting brass.” Known for his magnetic live performances, East and his band have performed sold-out shows worldwide and have been featured on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “CBS This Morning Saturday,” NBC’s “TODAY” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” PBS’ “Austin City Limits” and more.
