October 9, 2021 BY Nettwerk

Matt Maltese’s new album is out today. Good Morning It’s Now Tomorrow has been the subject of glowing praise from the likes of MOJO, DIY, NME, Under The Radar, CLASH, and more. To celebrate the release of Good Morning It’s Now Tomorrow, Maltese will play a sold-out intimate album release show at the Laylow in London, before embarking on European, UK and U.S. headline tours in 2022. Maltese recently announced his 2022 album release tour in the U.S. including dates at The Roxy in L.A. and Elsewhere Zone One in New York, which you can find below.

Written and recorded between his London home and Echo Zoo studios on England’s south coast during the UK’s year-long lockdown, Good Morning It’s Now Tomorrow sees Maltese embrace positivity and romanticise the quotidian across swooping love ballads and rich instrumentation.  “A lot of this [new] record is escapism,” says Maltese. “I’ve had to find more meaning out of the small parts of life. I want this record to celebrate the theatre in all the small things. It’s so cheesy to say it, but I think life is best when you try to make the ordinary extraordinary.”

Themes like the banality and loneliness of life have consistently weighed heavy on Matt Maltese’s songwriting, none more so than on the dystopian single “As The World Caves In” from 2018 first album Bad Contestant – a song so impossibly on-the-nose for the past twelve months of the pandemic, it could have been written three weeks ago rather than three years back. During the process of moving our lives online, things have had a strange way of coming full circle; with “As The World Caves In” undergoing a major resurgence, ringing true for a new legion of young fans on TikTok where it soundtracks over 80k videos (he also has upwards of 340,000 followers on TikTok alone) and has found fans in online megastars like Doja Cat and Charli XCX in the process. As a result, Maltese is now reaching an audience bigger than ever before on streaming platforms. Exactly 12 months ago, “As The World Caves In” was being streamed roughly 13,000 times daily on Spotify, now the single has over 142 million streams and Maltese’s monthly listeners have jumped from 160k to 3.5M. Good Morning It’s Now Tomorrow is Anglo-Canadian Maltese’s first full-length release since his acclaimed 2020 EP madhouse. The singles “queen bee” and “hi” from madhouse were heavily supported across BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music, Radio X, and more. madhouse followed Maltese’s album debut Bad Contestant (2018) and sophomore release Krystal (2019) in registering critical praise.
