Madi Diaz Duets with Kacey Musgraves on New Single “Don’t Do Me Good”: Stream

Madi Diaz has teamed up with Kacey Musgraves for a new single titled “Don’t Do Me Good,” which is out now. Along with the release, Diaz has also unveiled details for a 2024 headlining tour.

“Don’t Do Me Good” is the second single from Diaz’s forthcoming album, Weird Faith, due on February 9th via ANTI-. Musically, it is fairly sparse, with a piano and an airy drum kit carrying most of the arrangement. Overtop, however, Diaz’s and Musgraves’ voices come together to create a crisp, smooth blend of melodic harmony.

Tonally, Diaz wanted the song to “feel like calling your friend” to commiserate, and having “that person say ‘Yeah, I’ve been there,’ and share that experience with you.” Lyrically, she was inspired by the dynamic of a struggling relationship. “This song is about that person that we keep coming back to,” she said. “No matter how many times they let us down. It’s about waking up every day and making the choice to love a person unconditionally, while it’s simultaneously getting harder and harder to ignore that nothing is getting better in the relationship. It’s stubborn, it’s defiant, it’s hopeful, and it’s aggressively optimistic. It’s about being a bit of a masochist and being so in love with the hard work of loving a person that you don’t know how to walk away from them.”

To that end, Diaz expressed her gratitude for having Musgraves on the track. “I am so happy Kacey said ‘Yes’ when I asked her to sing on ‘Don’t Do Me Good,’” she said. “This song would have been so awfully lonely without her and I am so grateful I get to hear her voice on this with mine.” Watch the music video for the single below.

Weird Faith will drop on February 9th, and will be available in digital, CD, and vinyl formats. Pre-orders are ongoing.
