Sleeve Notes podcast: Maggie Lindemann talks through new EP ‘PARANOIA’, track-by-track

In our new podcast series, our favourite musicians share the real stories behind their new music.


Today marks the release of Maggie Lindemann‘s debut EP, ‘PARANOIA’. The Texan-born singer has already seen huge success. 2016 single, ‘Pretty Girl’ – a track celebrating the many facets of womanhood – boasts 76 million views on YouTube and a casual 728 million streams on Spotify.

But until now, fans haven’t had a full-length release from Maggie. ‘PARANOIA’ is eight new songs of pop-punk and emo brilliance from the 22-year-old artist. And as a special treat for fans, Maggie has talked through the meaning behind each of the tracks in our Sleeve Notes podcast. In between each song Maggie will reveal the inspiration behind some of her most honest work to date: songs such as ‘GASLIGHT!’, ‘LONER’ and ‘CRASH AND BURN’.
