Matthew Good has announced the release date and title for his forthcoming album, Something Like a Storm. The new album will be available everywhere on October 20, 2017. Fans who preorder the album on iTunes or in Matthew’s official store will receive an instant download of “Bad Guys Win,” “Days Come Down” and the single “Decades.”
“The theme of the album is one foreboding, of the gathering of socially divisive storm clouds, from the perspective of the personal to wider frames of inclusion,” Matthew says of Something Like a Storm. “The title comes from a demo originally recorded years ago. Given that it was roughly 20 minutes in length, and comprised of movements, I’d only written the first five lines of lyrics which are now the first lines on the album. Musically, the song on the album doesn’t include anything from the original demo.”
In the lead up to this announcement, Matthew has released a number of videos on his social channels, including one of the first live performances of his single “Decades,” taped at the Danforth Music Hall on his recent Beautiful Midnight Revisited tour. Those in attendance on this tour were treated to a sneak peek of both “Decades” and “Bad Guys Win.”
Matthew also participated in the Warner Music Canada 5Q4 series, in which he speaks about the process of recording “Decades.”
Matthew Good has been prolific in the decades since the release of his debut album. His eleven studio albums have combined for nearly one million albums sold in Canada alone. Matthew has also been nominated for 21 Juno Awards including a Rock Album of the Year nomination for Chaotic Neutral, his most recent studio album.
