“I Never Miss You Until I Know You Won’t Be Coming Home.”
Matt Corby has us happily ‘all fired up’ today with news of his long-awaited sophomore album, upcoming live dates and the launch of a brand new single. If anyone has ever had the pleasure of witnessing this man’s unbelievable vocal chords live, then you will understand just how exciting this is.
Quite a transition from the drifting kaleidoscopic universe found in previous single, No Ordinary Life, Matt’s new song is a beautifully understated piano ballad, heartfelt and timeless in it’s delivery. Having recently become a new Father, it’s clear to hear the change in the Australian artist, as he reflects on his new found responsibilities, both on a personal and musical level. What definitely hasn’t changed though, is his enchanting ability to enlist us into some breathtakingly blues-tinged euphoria.
From futuristic jams to old soul crooning, these first tasters show ‘Rainbow Valley’ to be a lushly multifaceted collection of songs, a reflection of the continued change that comes from such a joyous new stage in life. I honestly cannot wait to hear more. The new album will be released via Atlantic Records on November 2nd. Tickets for his UK shows in January go on sale Friday 14th September.
Go ahead, close your eyes and unwind your week with this bare-boned beauty. Watch All Fired Up filmed live from his home studio lawn below.
