Maddie Poppe Announces New Single “Keep On Movin’ On”
Maddie Poppe was crowned the new American Idol earlier this year and casually dropped one of the best winner’s singles in the franchise’s 16-season history. Penned by Julia Michaels, “Going Going Gone” is an instantly catchy country-pop concoction that oozes youthful restlessness. The track made an immediate impression, climbing all the way to number three on iTunes and racking up a couple of million Spotify streams. With that kind of momentum, it will be interesting to see how her next single does.
Written by Jarrad Kritzstein, Brandon Lowry and the always-great Hillary Lindsey (she has penned hits for Carrie Underwood and Kelsea Ballerini), “Keep On Movin’ On” will arrive on October 26. Maddie revealed the striking cover art on Instagram this morning and it finds her staring serenely at the camera in a frilly, high-collared blouse. If those songwriters and her outfit are any indication, the breakout star is sticking with her country roots — hopefully with a splash of pop thrown in. See the full cover art below.
