Mercury Records signing Matt Walters (left, relaxing casually on the ol’ two seater) will release his debut album ‘Farewell Youth’ early next month and to launch it into the musical ether, he’ll hit the stage for one-off live launches in both Sydney and Melbourne.
His first ever long player comes almost two years after the release of his debut EP ‘Echo On’ and is the latest chapter in the realisation of a dream that began a few short years ago when he was signed on the spot by Mercury Records A&R chief Peter Karpin.
To celebrate the album’s release, the gang at Universal Music is giving you the chance to get your greasy mitts on a track called ‘Horses’ by signing up to Matt’s official mailing list (HERE).
In the meantime, however, lock May 06 in your diary – that’s the release date for ‘Farewell Youth’ – or catch him live at one of the two album launches;
May 11 : Sydney (The Vanguard)
May 12 : Melbourne (Northcote Social Club)
