Matt Nathanson news

Matt Nathanson’s ninth studio album, Last of the Great Pretenders, will be released on July 16 (see track listing below).

Produced by Nathanson with Mike Viola and Jake Sinclair, the album's first single is "Mission Bells" - already #12 on the Triple A radio chart. He describes “Mission Bells” as “a love story via a street fight.” Set against a San Francisco backdrop, the city serves as the locale for several songs on the new album.

The video for “Mission Bells" is now on Vevo and pays homage to Alfred Hitchcock. 

Also based in San Francisco, Nathanson's 2007 album Some Mad Hope (his first for Vanguard) yielded the hit single “Come On Get Higher,” which has sold more than 2 million copies, as well as subsequent hits “Car Crash,” “Falling Apart” and “All We Are.”

Modern Love, his previous studio album, debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and topped the iTunes Pop Chart. It featured the hit singles “Faster” and “Run” – the latter featuring Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush.
