Matthew Good Working on New Album

Published: 2008-05-01
Although his last record came out only last summer, singer-songwriter Matthew Good has already written new demos for his next record. The follow up to 2007's Hospital Music will be the Canadian artist's fourth solo album and Good is ready to go into the studio for recording, mixing and producing. After those steps are completed, Good also has to find an outlet to release the finished disc, as he is no longer with label Universal Music Canada, the record company under which his previous solo efforts were released.

Good hopes to go into the studio by fall of this year to record the songs which he tells Chartattack are more symphonic than usual though the elements of rock he is known for are of course present too. No other details are known about the forthcoming release.

However, Good will be starting a full band tour later this month across Canada. Twenty-six dates across the country have been set, beginning on the 20th of May and ending on the 12th of July. Good's last tour was a solo acoustic one so this time around, he will be playing songs from Hospital Music as well as his previous work with several musicians in tow. Since the announcement of tour dates this past February, quite a few more have been added.
