Virgin Records today announced that Matt Goss, the dapper British crooner, will release his first US album, Life You Imagine on April 29th. The Caesars
Palace headliner will perform on The Queen
Latifah Show on 3/14 and join a distinguished list of performers like Mary J. Blige, Lionel Richie
and Rod Stewart
when he performs his own exclusive HSN Live concert special on 4/20 for lifestyle and entertainment retailer HSN.

Matt's repertoire features modern classics inspired by timeless themes, which prompted Billboard Magazine to write that the album is "a mix of big band swing and contemporary-sounding soul that pays respectful homage to the Rat Pack
era." Esteemed producer, Ron Fair (Lady Gaga, U2, Christina
Aguilera) and Matt meticulously recorded the album over two years' time with a full band, a sixteen-piece brass section and thirty-two strings at the iconic Capitol Studios in Los Angeles.
Goss says, "After nearly three years of making the album with Ron, it's truly an amazing feeling to be releasing it in the US. My wish is that it becomes the tapestry of people's lives."
Last month, Goss released a sneak peek of what's to come with a four-song EP prominently featuring the romantic single, "I Do." In response, Idolator confirmed, "The suave Brit has reinvented himself as an old-fashioned crooner and brings major Rat Pack
realness to 'I Do.' SheKnows.com added, "It's hard not to get caught up in that sultry voice, sexy accent and sweet, retro music. We think you'll fall pretty hard, too, once you take a listen."
"We're excited to be the U.S. launch partner for international superstar Matt Goss," said Andy Sheldon, Chief Creative Development Officer, HSN Entertainment. "Matt's soulful voice and sophisticated style is sure to resonate with our customers and I can't wait to introduce them to this amazing talent."
