With his hotly-anticipated third album ‘Good Morning It’s Now Tomorrow’ arriving on 8th October via Nettwerk, Matt Maltese is giving us our latest taste of what to expect, sharing new gem ‘You Deserve An Oscar’.
“We all put on a brave face in this life, and this is a song for everyone who still carries on despite the misery and chaos,” Matt says. “The greatest actors aren’t in Hollywood - they’re the people walking by you on the street, pretending everything’s ok.”
Speaking to us for our August issue about his forthcoming album, he told us, “It sounds quite hopeful for how hopeless everything was. I just had this thing in me that I wanted to write songs that were peaceful and made me feel more peaceful. The record - although it’s definitely dark and melodramatic at times - a lot of it is about trying to be OK with things. It’s almost like the songs were what I wanted to be at times.”
