Maddie & Tae have premiered the music video for their new single Friends Don’t.
Directed by TK McKamy, the video was shot in Nashville and shows both Maddie and Tae flirting with love interests as they try to figure out if their friendships could become something more.
“To us Friends Don’t feels sexy and confident, but with a dash of that uncertainty you have at the start of a relationship because you don’t know if the other person feels the same way you do,” shared Dye. “We wanted to play off that push and pull we’ve all felt before.”
“We both got to do a little acting and play out separate storylines with a love interest,” added Marlow. “It was pretty outside of the box for us to act, so we just tried to have fun with it.”
Friends Don’t was written by Maddie and Tae along with Justin Ebach and Jon Nite. The song is gaining traction at radio and recently was added to Amazon Music’s Best Country of 2018 So Far playlist.
The track is the first new music from the duo since the release of their debut album Start Here in 2015. That album spawned the Platinum hit Girl in a Country Song, which topped the US Country Airplay chart.
