Maddox Jones Follows Up Debut EP with the Heartwarming New Single, “World’s Gone Mad”
Rising UK singer-songwriter, Maddox Jones, follows up his debut Headspace EP with a heartwarming new single, “World’s Gone Mad”.
Written with Mikey Austin-Riley and David Crawford at the start of the first U.K. lockdown, “World’s Gone Mad” is the much needed comfort song for many stuck at home this winter, a reminder of those life affirming hugs so many of us have missed this year.
Co-produced by Billy Lockett and Louis Souyave, the song is a heartfelt love-letter, expressing a realization that many of us have been experiencing this year; the importance of our relationships with our family, friends and loved ones. Combining a beautifully catchy chorus and piano hook with Maddox’s voice, the track has all the nostalgic reminiscence of an early Coldplay record.
Premiered by UK music blog New Boots, the music video was directed by Rhys Dunstan at Maddox’s house in between lockdowns in the UK.
“The song is about being there for each-other in these crazy times. We’ve obviously been going through a lot this year and I think what’s really kept it all together is having your friends around or having your partner, and just holding each-other up.”

After a career of playing in bands and collaborating with other artists, Headspace EP is Jones’ first ever solo release. This new creative process allowed the talented singer-songwriter to channel his deepest emotions, developing a vulnerable body of work while exploring a more diverse sound palette. The result is a personal journey through hedonism, love, loss and the pain of growing up, all echoed by Jones’ honest vocals.
