If you’ve been following Madison Beer for a while then there is a strong likelihood that you know that not only is she an incredible songwriter but she is also ridiculously intelligent with her social media educating me on multiple occasions. She manages to demonstrate all of that into one song today titled Stained Glass which was luckily released after she performed it on an Instagram Live and her fans loved it so much they an left unprecedented number of comments demanding the song be released on her labels Instagram. Fans, they get stuff done I’ll say that much!
“I wrote Stained Glass at a time where I was really struggling mentally,” stated Madison. “This song was my message, not only to the public, but to those around me, to be more gentle on people and not judge them so hard, because you never know what someone’s been through. People sometimes assume that I’m ok, when I’m not; people don’t really see the parts of me that are the ugly, sad or depressed, they only see the sides they want to see, or the sides I feel comfortable to show because of the scrutiny that I’ve been under in my life.” She continued, “The stones lyric in the chorus refer to the traditional metaphor for people’s words and the lyric saying ‘I just might break’ is where I have finally shown my vulnerability in its absolute form.”
As usual Madison’s vocals are flawless with them commanding your attention and enthralling you from start to finish with the ominous yet passionate soundscape only helping to enhance that further. Lyrically the track is quite poetic with them all coming from her own personal experience and it’s shown perfectly through the vulnerability she’s demonstrated throughout the single. She’s truly on fire right now.
