New Scott Matthews single, ‘My Selfless Moon’, is the first to be taken from his forthcoming album, Restless Lullabies, in which the Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter has boldly reincarnated the songs of its electronic predecessor, New Skin, with an equally audacious offering of the purist acoustic soundscape that has long been coveted by fans.
On the new single, Matthews explains, ‘Dealing with a tone of fragility, I wrote the chorus line, ‘I bend, I bow more weak than strong. Carefully the fragile break, tender from the night, I’m her fear; I’m miles from moonlit sky, guiding her blind’. It takes strength and resilience to carry the burden of belief and hope when sometimes you can’t see it for yourself but somehow the strength you need can come from those that don’t have any left to give.’.
Matthews’ new album Restless Lullabies was mastered by Miles Showell at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, who praised it; thus, “It is not over emphasising things when I say that Scott’s forthcoming album is among the very best records I have worked on in my whole career”.
