American Idol winner Maddie Poppe just released a new song. The winsome “First Aid Kit” written by Connor Pledger and Asia Whitacre and released on Hollywood Records and 19 recordings is the singer’s next single after last year’s “Keep on Movin’ On” and her American Idol winner’s single “Going Going Gone.”
“I’m very proud I get to call this song mine,” Maddie wrote on Twitter, “I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did making it. Excited for you all to join me on this new chapter of music! #FirstAidKit.”
The singer also announced her next single, “Little Things,” will be released on March 1st, and that she has plans to release a full album on May 17th.
“I’m really excited to release ‘First Aid Kit’ because it feels like it’s authentically me. It’s about finding someone who helps you heal from a broken heart and learning to love again,” explained Maddie. “I love the message of this song, and it feels incredible to release something that I feel such a personal connection to. It’s very heartwarming”
On upcoming single, “Little Things,” Maddie says: “This is a special song- it was written specifically for me, inspired by my relationship with Caleb.” Maddie began dating fellow Idol contestant, Caleb Lee Hutchinson while filming the show, and shares that he has been a big source of inspiration for her music. “I couldn’t believe how much every word rings true to my relationship and how it feels when we’re apart.”
