Music News | Mar 6th, 2024

Mat Kearney / Andrew Belle / Filous @ Playstation Theater, NYC (38)

Mat Kearney has been releasing some catchy singles lately and he announced a new full-length self-titled album. The new album will be out May 17th. Besides that, he also released a huge tour in the Fall as well.

The album was produced by Kearney with help from Micah Tawkls (Hayley Williams, Liza Anne, COIN) and Marc Scibilia (Breland, Robin Schultz, Teddy Swims). You can hear the new single Palisades today as well here. “Palisades” is the third single to be released ahead of his self-titled new studio album, following “Headlights Home” – which was released in January and “Good Thing Going On” released in February. Written and recorded over the past couple of years with the help of some talented friends, Kearney counts this new album as one of his most personal releases and sees it as a reflection of his two-decade long career.

Mat wrote to his fans in his latest newsletter:

It’s time I let you in on the secret of what I’ve been working on for the last 2 years. My self-titled ‘Mat Kearney’ record is coming out May 17th. I got a text from my long-time band member Phil Moore saying, ‘this record feels the most like the guy I’ve been hanging out with for the last 10 years.’ I think that sums it up. I wanted to make something honest, warm, raw, that felt like a big hug, the soundtrack for a drive into mountains, and beach hang with friends. I spread my wings and took on more of the production. Some songs I did start to finish alone. I also collaborated in ways I haven’t before. My favorite Nashville band The Brook and The Bluff played on a handful of songs. It was the first time I felt like I was in a band. I tried to keep it simple. Real instruments and honest performances, like how I started out. I keep playing this record in my car which isn’t normal for me once I complete a project. I hope that’s a good sign and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Love, Mat
