Multi-platinum selling artist Matt Nathanson is releasing his new album, Modern Love, next Tuesday, June 21st on
Vanguard Records. The album is streaming in its entirety now on AOL Music here: http://music.aol.com/new-
releases-full-cds/#/6. Fans can also visit mattnathanson.com to hear Matt’s living liner notes for each song on Modern
Love.


In honor of release week, Matt will be performing single “Faster” and the album’s title track “Modern Love” on
Jimmy Kimmel Live! next Wednesday, June 22nd. Matt will be accompanied by a full horn section for both songs. You
have likely already heard first single “Faster” which is climbing the radio charts and is currently Top 5 at Triple A and
Top 30 at Hot AC! Fresh off the road from a nationwide tour with country superstars Sugarland, Matt recently
announced plans to join Maroon 5 and Train on a U.S. tour later this summer. Full tour dates are below.


Modern Love comes on the heels of 2007’s break-out success Some Mad Hope, which catapulted the San Francisco-
based Nathanson from darling of the touring circuit with a devoted cult following to a bonafide hit maker and one of
the premiere songwriters on the music scene today. The album boasts the Top 3 single “Come On Get Higher,” which
has sold over 2 million copies to date. Known for his legendary live shows that are both wildly funny and emotionally
provocative, Nathanson took a year off the road to record Modern Love – the first break he has taken from touring in
his 15 year career. 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, AC/DC and Talking Heads. “That was a sexy
song and it connected, people got it,” he says of “Come On Get Higher.” “So we started with the idea of keeping a
groove steady the whole way through a song. I wanted things to breathe and hang off these songs in a way that defied
the fact that they were written on an acoustic guitar.” 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.
