To coincide with the tour, Matt Maltese has today shared “Smile in the Face of the Devil“, a stripped-back, piano-driver song that features nothing but his enchantingly melancholic vocals. The eccentric lyrics brings you on a journey of Matt’s whimsically quirky world and makes for a somber yet endearingly uplifting song. The new song is taken from his upcoming stripped-down EP Quiet Recordings (out 8th April on Nettwerk) that also features “quiet” versions of four of his much-loved previously released singles.
