Australian songwriter and producer Matt Corby has announced his new album, ‘Everything’s Fine’ on March 24th via Communion.
Corby has also shared his latest new track, ‘Reelin’, which reflects on the push-and-pull dynamic of long-term romantic relationships. The album is Corby’s first in five years and was recorded at his Rainbow Valley Studios with Chris Collins (Gang of Youths, Middle Kids, Skegss).
In a statement, Corby said “I’m at a really beautiful point in my life. I’m accepting all this stuff: the good and the bad, but particularly the bad. Which is kind of great. It’s a good thing to come to that point. Life isn’t always magical, but the moments that are, well you really value them. I think this record is about that, about managing your actual reality. Sometimes I have those moments when you realise: well I’m still breathing, you still have the gift of life, so everything is fine I guess?”
The album was written during the recent global touring pause. On the day he had planned to begin writing his next record, Matt’s home was inundated with flood waters. His family moved into Rainbow Valley Studios, where he juggled familial responsibilities with his creative pursuits – a one-of-a-kind pressure cooker circumstance that would galvanise his artistic evolution.
To promote the album, Corby will return to Europe for a run of one-off live dates. The shows include London’s Omeara, Nalen in Stockholm and Zonnehuis in Amsterdam. The full listings are as follows:
26 – Nalen, Stockholm
28 – Zonnehuis, Amsterdam
31 – Omeara, London
