Matt Maltese has shared his first track of 2018!
‘Greatest Comedian’ is the first single to be taken from an upcoming debut album, which is due early this summer (!!!) It’s been produced in collaboration Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado and Londoner Alex Burey, it might be his most ambitious track to date.
Speaking of the track, Matt said: “when I was working with Jonathan Rado, coming to end of recording the album, I played him it and he was like (in strong LA accent), “We gotta record that record”. And then he made it into what it is now. It’s definitely a kind of anomaly on the album but it’s the song I always wanted to to be able to make. My close, sometimes sardonic friend listened to it the other day, and she heard the first five seconds and went, “Hello 2002”. I thought - yes I’ve done it”.
As well as a show at Peckham’s Safehouse tonight (6th March), Matt’s announced a show at London’s Scala, which will take place on 6th June.
