hey, hey all... matt here,

exciting stuff in this email. so i'll get to it:

part of the fun of making a record, for me, is finding a title and coming up with the album cover. as a music fan/nerd, these things are what cement the album concepts AND give the songs a thread to hang from... for the listener, it's one more level to dream on. i mean, i STILL stare at the cover of 'the joshua tree' when i listen to it... it's such a crucial part of the experience. can you imagine it without that cover??

so, that said...

i am SUPER PSYCHED to be unveiling to you all, first, the cover and title of my brand new record, Last Of The Great Pretenders.

the photograph has been a favorite of mine for years. it was done by an incredible artist called mr. toledano. i was over the moon when he gave us the go ahead to use it. check out more of his work HERE.

MORE IMPORTANT/FUN STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW:

Last Of The Great Pretenders is being released in the US on JULY 16th! (international release dates coming soon.)

iTunes pre-order, as well as my webstore pre-order will be available starting MAY 21st!! so, that's about it for now.

more exciting news to come (this may or may not include news about a music video premiere, a tour, & more)!!! hope you dig the title and the cover as much as i do!

talk soon,

matt

I didn't like Mission Bells as much as I should've but, since Matt is one of my favorite singer/songwriters.. I'll check it out.

I wasn't big on "Mission Bells" either, but I'm not worried. Modern Love was one of my go-to records during the summer of 2011, and I suspect this will be no different.

So I guess he didn't want to name this record, "More Songs for Taylor Swift to Steal."

(looking forward to this though, loved Modern Love)

I was at The Point show he recorded live and released.. so many bits were cut from that because they were so vulgar and hilarious! Dude is one of the best entertainers doing it right now.
