Matt Cardle announces new album and live dates

Matt Cardle returns with new album ‘The Fire’, the follow-up to his platinum selling debut ‘Letters’, released 29th October on So What? Recordings.

He’s also unveiled the record’s lead single ‘It’s Only Love’ (October 29). Which can be listened to here

Speaking about the single, Matt says, ‘“When I started writing the track with Paul (Statham) we immediately started to feel a bit of an 80’s vibe, so we just ran with it! Big vocals, big drums… it was great fun to write,”

‘The Fire’ was written and recorded in London, Toronto and Los Angeles, and features co-writes with Eg White, Steve Booker, James Walsh, and Paul Statham. 29 year-old Cardle produced the album and plays most of the instruments himself. Lead single ‘It’s Only Love’ will also be released 29th October.

One of a very elite group of male solo artists with a platinum-selling debut album, Cardle has sold over 2 million singles and albums combined. Following a sold-out 23 date tour earlier this year, he will embark on a short UK tour culminating in an album launch show at The Scala on Tuesday 23rd October.
