Matt Nathanson has announced he will be opening for Maroon 5 and Train on the second leg of their
co-headlining North American tour this summer. The string of dates, kicking off August 28 in Louisville,
KY, will follow the June 21 release of Matt’s new album, Modern Love. The new album’s first single
“Faster” is already making waves at radio, currently in the top ten at Triple A and Most Added at Hot AC.
Fans can catch Matt on tour now with Sugarland.

Modern Love is the follow up to 2007’s Some Mad Hope, Nathanson’s break-through album boasting
platinum-selling singles “Come On Get Higher” and “Car Crash.” With eleven of the twelve tracks
licensed for film and television, the power of Nathanson’s songwriting and the connection his music
establishes with listeners is undeniable. The success of Some Mad Hope and “Come On Get Higher”
gave Nathanson a sense of accomplishment and confidence that allowed him to take a new approach to
Modern Love, taking bigger risks and diving deeper into his vast array of musical influences. The writing
process started by exploring songs that were more physical and groove-based, drawing from influences
such as Depeche Mode, ACDC and Talking Heads. By the time the eleven songs, written and produced
with his longtime collaborator Mark Weinberg, were completed, Nathanson was marveling at the new
territory they had covered. From the “Depeche Mode groove” in “Mercy (Less Drowning, More Land)”
to the ecstatic opening track and first single “Faster,” to the soaring “Run,” which features Jennifer
Nettles and Kristian Bush, Modern Love is a luminous and bold departure.
