Matthew E. White announces new album 'K Bay'

Following up the release of his highly-praised collaborative LP 'Broken Mirror: A Selfie Reflection' alongside Lonnie Holley earlier this year, Matthew E. White has now announced his plans for a new solo album, arriving later this year.

The new full-length 'K Bay' marks his first solo effort since 2015's 'Fresh Blood', is being previewed by the new lead single 'Genuine Hesitation', and is set to be released on the 10th September via Domino Records.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, "For me, one of the most exciting production techniques from this record was this idea where I’d record the song twice. First, in a more traditional, band-in-the-room, work out the parts and sounds, nail it, kind of way. Secondly, I would distill the concept of the song one way or another into an instrumental composition. I had a much larger band (based off of Miles Davis’s On The Corner bands) play this kind of new-music/improvisational piece at the same tempo as I had recorded the first, more ‘normal’ take. The goal was to be able to cut across between the two pieces, and/or layer them and have them fit together in wild ways. To a large degree it worked, which was pretty exciting for me. The intro to ‘Genuine Hesitation’ is an excerpt from the much longer improvisation based instrumental."
