Matt Maltese unveils new single 'You Deserve An Oscar'

With his early-awaited new album set to land in the coming months, Matt Maltese has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'You Deserve An Oscar' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Shoe' and 'Mystery' in previewing his third LP 'You Deserve An Oscar', which is out on the 8th October via Nettwerk.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “We all put on a brave face in this life, and this is a song for everyone who still carries on despite the misery and chaos. The greatest actors aren’t in Hollywood - they’re the people walking by you on the street, pretending everything’s ok. The song is both sincerely congratulatory and self-deprecating about the movie-esque roles we all play in everyday life by just pretending things are ok when they’re not. We all act to a certain extent I suppose, and this is kind of a hug of appreciation for those that do it so convincingly. I’d like it to be the kind of song people can sing to themselves as a kind of comical but genuine form of self-appreciation”
