NEW ALBUM: MATT SIMONS | IDENTITY CRISIS
Matt Simons has a unique ability to reach a global audience, with an accessible sound that still feels personal to each of his fans worldwide. He has released his fourth studio album entitled "Identity Crisis" via [PIAS] Recordings Holland. Offering a wide range of styles, while all tied together with Simons’ unique pop sensibility, the ten-track collection features some of his recent hit singles, including "Better Tomorrow," "Cold," and the album’s title track. The latest preview of the release comes from "In Case You Missed It." Teaming up again with "Better Tomorrow" producer Hampus Lindvall (Zara Larsson, Icona Pop, Sigala) and long-time friend Chris Ayer. The single covers familiar themes in Simons’ refreshingly honest songwriting. The songwriter says: “It’s about the dance people have to do when exploring a new relationship. Are they not responding to messages because they are going through something that demands their attention, or are they not that into you?” Matt will support the album release with an extensive tour supporting classical crossover titans 2Cellos, who embark on their last ever tour of the US and Europe. Hitting some of the world’s biggest arena venues from L.A. to Paris, London to Berlin and many cities in between, this is the biggest tour Matt has undertaken to date. Simons grew up in Palo Alto, California as the grandson of two opera singers, a story of humble beginnings. With four full albums, three EPs, and 17 charting singles since his self-released debut, "Pieces," in 2012, Simons is an unassuming, natural performer and shares himself confidently and gently captivating the crowd with his authentic persona.
