Experimental Artist Mappe Of Returns with New Single “Ladybird”

NASHVILLE, TN – Canadian experimental artist Mappe Of has just release the ethereal new track “Ladybird”. The stunning self-produced song is the
newest music from the creative mind of Tom Meikle, who says the song deals with human’s “complicated relationship with animals.” “Our partnership with certain animals is a beautiful representation of what is possible when kindness rules…”

“Ladybird” serves as a stand-alone track bridging between Mappe Of’s captivating 2017 debut album, A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone (Paper Bag Records) and the highly-anticipated sophomore album to be released later this year.

A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone received high praise from the press, including NPR MusicStereogumConsequence of Sound, PasteAssociated Press, The Globe and Mail and more. (See Highlights)
