Matt Corby has revealed his second new song of 2020, the sun-drenched and optimistic ‘Vitamin’.
The song was conceived before the global pandemic hit, during a time when the Australian multi-instrumentalist was focusing on writing and production. ‘Vitamin’ was self-produced by Matt with the help of Matt Neighbour. “I was originally going to put these songs in the storage lockup until a new album was ready, but with the extended period of time off the road I was able to dive in and bring them to light” explains Matt, who believes the pandemic did not affect these songs, but that we will see the true impact on his future releases. “Not even being able to hang out with your mates who you would usually collaborate with has been funny. Making music completely on your own with not even one other person to bounce off has been doing funny things to me.”
‘Vitamin’ is an exploration into addiction with an overwhelmingly positive message. “It’s about the things that stop you from seeing the big picture, what’s truly important and the people around you that make life great” says Matt “It’s about valuing ideas when they come, and that only comes from being ready to receive those ideas and be conscious for moments and pull your creative mind into building something real.” Matt explains as he reveals that his ‘vitamins’ are the things that nourish his creative process, and something he strives for.
As well as working on his own music, Matt has recently been collaborating with The Riot, Great Gable and a local musician to him, Budjerah.
Matt had to cancel a North American tour due to the pandemic, but will continue to tour when the time is right. He is currently working on a new album.
