New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Brooklyn-based pop prodigy Matt Simons has announced his new 12-track album, 'After The Landslide,' out April 5th via AWAL. This release marks the Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist's third full-length and his new song "Open Up" is out today.

A West Coast talent who first found success in Europe, Simons' two studio albums to date - 'Pieces' and 'Catch & Release' - have seen him reach huge audiences worldwide. His biggest hit to date, "We Can Do Better," boasts over 200 million global Spotify streams, spent 2 months in the Top 10 European Airplay chart and peaked in the Top 5 US Triple A radio chart. His collaboration with LA-based artist Amy Kuney (AMES) on "Amy's Song" and its moving video featuring the LGBTQ+ community spreading the message of love, and equality, illustrates a deeper side of Matt's songcraft and further bolsters his burgeoning career.

'After The Landslide' is his biggest, most ambitious, most personal record yet. With nods to both Bon Iver, and Springsteen, it's a record that approaches some of The Big Themes in our lives - love, loss, grief, and the power it takes to get through it all. Matt's piano-rooted melodies ally themselves to lyrics that speak plainly, sometimes starkly, about important events in his life, and with these he crafts songs that make the personal 'universal.'

Matt will tour in Europe this Summer, including a coveted support slot for Ed Sheeran at Firenze Rocks in Florence. A full US tour will be announced later this year. 'After The Landslide' artwork was created by acclaimed Australian Illustrator Karen Lynch.

Matt Simons on 'After The Landslide':
"I chose After The Landslide as the title track because for me, it encapsulates what the whole album is about more than any other. This record is about a quarter-life crisis. It's about "blowing up your life," starting over and all the cathartic yet terrifying things that go along with it. I wrote these songs at age 29 (in a much more settled place) but in order to do so, I had to dig deep into what I remember feeling in my early 20s. I didn't have a lot of direction, I was just starting out in Brooklyn, fresh out of a big breakup and had no idea what I was doing with my life. As scary as that was it also came with a lot of freedom. I tried to capture those feelings and experiences on this album."
