Today, indie-pop artist Jena Rose has released her latest single, “Mad Man.” The track is an intoxicating blend of relatable lyrics and bright vocals over synth-pop production. “Mad Man” captures the drama and toxicity that come with putting yourself in an unhealthy situation with relatable lyrics and a catchy melody you won’t be able to forget.
“‘Mad Man’ was written by myself and produced by Adrian Newman,” says Rose. “The song talks about being in love with, well, a ‘mad man.’ This ‘Mad Man’ can be your girlfriend, boyfriend, friend from school, teacher, mom, dad, or anyone you feel you can relate it to. I know we’ve all been in an unhealthy situation where someone is pulling you down and inhibiting your full potential. When I wrote the song, I included multiple religious words/lines that help stress that this person plays the role of the devil. I was watching The Handmaid’s Tale at the time so I might’ve unintentionally used that as a reference!”
The 18-year old opened for Echosmith on their Inside a Dream Tour” in 2018 and most recently joined Aly & AJ on their “Sanctuary Tour.” Rose’s debut EP, Reasons, came out just last year and yielded two Billboard Dance Club Chart entries.
