Madame Mayhem returned this week with her latest single and its companion video.

The singer-songwriter (a.k.a. Natalie Ann Cohen) debuted her new single ‘Cruel Heart‘ Friday along with its companion video. Produced by Johnny K (Disturbed, Finger Eleven, Sevendust), the song features a musical arrangement that easily lends itself to comparison to works from Sevendust. The song was co-written by Cohen and Keith Wallen (Breaking Benjamin).

Cohen talked about working with Wallen during a recent interview.

“This was one of the first songs Keith Wallen and I wrote together,” she said. “I always have such a great experience co-writing with Keith. I remember listening to this demo on my way home after we finished writing and just getting so excited to share it. I have been patiently waiting for the right moment to release this single and I think now is as good a time as any! This song is near and dear to my heart and I am excited for the world to hear it!”

She added, “I performed this song live on tour a few times prior to recording it, which only makes this release even more special because of the excitement the crowds had for “Cruel Heart” hearing it for the first time as an unknown song. I remember having conversations with fans after the shows about how much they connected with it, which means so much to me! I hope the song continues to connect with people through this release.”

Wallen performed the guitar line and backing vocals for ‘Cruel Heart’ while Jason “JBomb” Harrison handled drumming duties for the composition.

The debut of Cohen’s new song comes less than six months after she debuted her cover of Aerosmith’s hit song ‘Livin’ on the Edge.’ The cover is available to download here.

Cohen’s take of ‘Livin’ on the Edge’ came, at the time, came more than three months after the debut of her then latest original single, ‘Breaking Down.’ Wallen and Harrison also took part in that song’s creation along with Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Sons of Apollo, Mr. Big).
