After spending 2023 on a sold-out global headline tour, Maggie Lindemann is kicking off 2024 with the release of the emotionally charged track 'hostage'. Over a haunting beat, the new track explores the intricate theme of feeling trapped in your own mind despite being in a good place in your life. The accompanying music video actualizes the mind-f*ck nightmare.
On the new track, Maggie states, “‘hostage,’ for me, is like peering through a window into my own mind. It's about being caught in this strange limbo where everything around me, externally, is going well, but inside, there's a relentless storm. The song is a cry for that person who can calm the turmoil inside me, a plea for solace amidst my own mental chaos. It's raw and real - it's a journey so many of us silently go through."
Maggie elaborates on the inspiration behind the video, “The 'hostage' music video is like a visual echo of my inner turmoil. Waking up in this empty, enigmatic house, I'm lost in a loop of my own nightmares. It's a journey of frustration and isolation as I find myself trapped, trying to reach out to a world that just doesn't respond. The video mirrors the song's themes of feeling captive within your own mind, yearning for an escape. That Rapunzel moment? It's a surreal, haunting representation of longing for a freedom that feels just out of reach."
In 2022, Maggie released her debut album SUCKERPUNCH to glowing critical acclaim. V Magazine praised, “Lindemann is in the driver's seat of her own career 'SUCKERPUNCH' serves as a triumphant response to the music executives who stole her sound, as she comes into her own both as a musician and as a person.” She then embarked on a sold-out headline tour in 2023 – putting on iconic performances across the Australia, US, UK and Europe. Most recently, she closed the 'SUCKERPUNCH' era with the release of her world tour concert film – which has live footage from her performances at NYC’s Irving Plaza, Slam Dunk Fest, Rock am Ring, Rock im Park, and more.
