CMAT announces second album ‘Crazymad, For Me’

She’s also returned with another new track - the aptly-titled ‘Have Fun!’

DIY’s favourite Irish cowgirl CMAT has returned with news of her second album, ‘Crazymad, For Me’.

The news of her newest full-length follows on from her recent single ‘Whatever’s Inconvenient’, which landed just last month and will continue on from her 2022 debut ‘If My Wife New I’d Be Dead’. The twelve-track album is set for release on 13th October via AWAL.

Speaking of her new record is, CMAT has described it as “an abstract break-up album - about what happens when you are still angry about something that happened 10 years ago”.

The tracklisting for ‘Crazymad, For Me’ - which includes the aforementioned ‘Whatever’s Inconvenient’ - is as follows.

1. California
2. Phone Me
3. Vincent Kompany
4. Such A Miranda
5. Rent
6. Where Are Your Kids Tonight (feat John Grant)
7. Can’t Make Up My Mind
8. Whatever’s Inconvenient
9. I…Hate Who I Am When I’m Horny
10. Torn Apart
11. Stay For Something
12. Have Fun!

Today, CMAT has also shared another taste of the new album in the form of the album’s closer ‘Have Fun!’. “This is a song about ring necked parakeets that are wild in London, but it is also a song about getting over a breakup and moving on from an emotional stalemate even when you don’t, or can’t, forgive the other person’s actions,” she’s said of the track. “I suppose it is a song about how things in life are never satisfying, and don’t make sense, but they exist anyway and we have to make the best of it. And have fun!”

Check out the glorious video for ‘Have Fun!’ - which was shot in Paris and Dublin by Collective Film - below.
