Today London-based indie pop artist Matt Maltese released “Good Morning”, his latest single from his upcoming third LP, Good Morning It’s Now Tomorrow, which will be released on October 8 via Nettwerk. Written during the quarantine, the latest Maltese record finds the writing of indie pop songs in its layers again appreciating loneliness and sadness, but now it finds new hope and escapist optimism in the middle.
“It’s a record of how to keep up,” Maltese explains. “The pandemic made me very aware of the little things and the important things. He made the past feel even further away which is why I think the album is so hopeful. It made me realize what relationships and connections are real and a real source of joy. It made me catch on to those things more than ever. “
“Good Morning” is no less moving and jangly than the rest of the album’s singles so far, featuring a rising pop chorus and endless sweet melodies. Looking just below the breezy vibe, the circumstances of her writing come in big 一 “Good morning / It’s April something / Heavy clouds with a chance of crying /‘ Hi ’said the Queen to the nation / Million dead and the music is playing. ”As the song unfolds it becomes not only a stellar pop anthem but a tribute to both the tragedy and the beauty found in a new day.
The Maltese says about the track, “This song is a kind of ode to the readiness of the morning. I wrote this in the first lockdown when things were awfully endless, and you notice how life, even in a different form, is still going on and has as ordinary moments as it was in the previous life as well. All the time during the times people say ‘good morning’ when things are shattering. Every day is a new day and that new day can be big or torturous, but this world continues to move forward no matter what it is and we smile and drink coffee and say good morning to people. There’s something so English about her ordinariness too that I think is the reason why she sings more in an English accent. And I think this is also kind of a statement of support for someone you love and an acceptance that can always be tough but that’s good. The darkness never disappears but you can learn to live with it, happy. “
