Maddox Jones – World’s Gone Mad
Rising UK singer-songwriter, Maddox Jones, follows up his debut 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.
“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.”

Maddox Jones is already on his way to becoming a household name having already received praise from the likes of SPIN, American Songwriter, BBC, Record Of The Day and iHeart Radio with his debut EP, Headspace climbing its way to #4 on the iTunes UK Singer/songwriter chart and the title track rising to #11 in the Music Week commercial pop club charts. “World’s Gone Mad”, is a track influenced by the hardships our world finds itself in, but with an eye on the positive and should raise a much-needed smile.
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.
