Matt Maltese announces new album 'Driving Just To Drive'

Following on from the release of his highly-praised 2021 LP 'Good Morning It’s Now Tomorrow', Matt Maltese has now announced his plans for a new studio album, arriving in the Spring.

The new full-length 'Driving Just To Drive' will include the previously shared effort 'Mother', is being previewed by the record's title-track, and is set to be released on the 28th April via Nettwerk.

Speaking about the new release, he said, "I think getting older and busier, you can sometimes create a rewards-system in your brain, where every action needs to have a reason for doing that action. But there’s also a whole new fresh load of doom out there that sometimes can put our obsession with personal ‘growth’ into perspective. I often live in a building-block mindset where I need to do this thing so I can do that thing and that means I’ll have a chance at that other thing. In the meantime, there are all these uncontrollable (and maybe even unchangeable) realities, like a wealth-bias financial system and an exponentially heating world, that could render all the productivity pointless.

"I thought a lot back to being younger and how much more I used to do things just to do them. Playing on a playground as a kid or just going for a drive and listening to music in the car. I used to love stuff with no sense of an outcome, with no sense of self-imposed necessity. I think it’s important to have some of that in our lives."
