Matt Maltese releases a new romantic album called 'Good Morning It's Now Tomorrow'
Like so many others in 2020, Matt Maltese found himself stuck at home and dreaming of an escape. Having first established himself as a songwriter with a knack for dry one liners and a keen eye for self deprecation Maltese has spent the years since releasing 2018 debut Bad Contestant searching for something more like sincerity. A year later he released follow-up album 'Krystal' and now comes third album 'Good Morning It's Now Tomorrow' , his most genuine project to date. It’s an album filled with romance and light-hearted ruminations on both love and the future, as well as continuing his search for something bigger than normal life.
“A lot of this record is escapism,” he explains of the album, written and recorded between his London home and Echo Zoo studios on England’s south coast during the U.K.’s year-long lockdown. “I’ve had to find more meaning out of the small parts of life. I want this record to celebrate the theatre in all the small things. It’s so cheesy to say it, but I think life is best when you try to make the ordinary extraordinary.”
Where once Matt would have stared impending doom in the face and found a way to make fun of himself for basking in its darkness, Maltese is now more determined than ever to look to tomorrow and find a positive way forwards. “It’s a real coping record,” Maltese says of making his most optimistic work during “the worst period” of global unrest his lifetime. “The pandemic made me very aware of the small things and the important things. It made the past feel even further away which is why I think the album is so hopeful. It made me realise which relationships and connections are real and a true source of joy. It made me latch onto those things more than ever.”
