The Madden Brothers Have Two Tracks With Pharrell
After leading pop/punksters Good Charlotte to three top 10 Billboard 200 albums in 2002-07, The Madden Brothers (twins Joel and Benji) blast back with “Greetings From California…,” due Oct. 7 (Capitol). Retro-soulful lead single “We Are Done” is already bubbling under at top 40 and alternative radio, with major-market play from KIIS and KYSR Los Angeles.
The album includes two notable co-writes: the brothers penned “California Rain” and “Abbey” with their friend Pharrell Williams. “We went to see Pharrell because he’s someone we really love and respect,” Joel says. “Benji brought an acoustic guitar and Pharrell recognized that we wanted to make classic, California rock & roll and drew comparisons to the Eagles, which inspired us even more. We wrote ‘California Rain‘ together that night.”
