Matthew Sweet will release a new studio album, Tomorrow Forever, in June.
The 17-track long-player is a follow-up to 2011’s Modern Art, although he did issue Under The Covers Vol 3 with Susannah Hoffs in between.
You can preview the new single Trick on Spotify right now and the album can be pre-ordered on 2LP vinyl and CD. Tomorrow Forever is the first album recorded after Sweet moved back to Nebraska and features guests such as Rod Argent (piano on a couple of songs), the Bangles’ Debbie Peterson and Jayhawks’ frontman Gary Louris.
The album was originally funded by Kickstarter, where if you pledged $10,000 you could get Matthew to “produce/engineer/mix a song from his home studio with you” and “spend 2 days with him in the studio!”
You can even get a sneaky look at the packaging thanks to a couple of images posted on Sweet’s Facebook page (see above).
Matthew Sweet will tour in the USA this summer/autumn and Tomorrow Forever is released on 16 June 2017.
