Aqualung, in the shape of singer-songwriter Matt Hales, follows the huge success of last year’s self-titled debut album with the October 27th release of a new album ‘Still Life.’
The album includes his current release Brighjter Than Sunshine, released October 13th.
Amongst the other songs waiting to be discovered on ‘Still Life’ are ‘Another little hole ’ (“It's about the fact that the clock's ticking, I guess. And regardless of whatever’s happening, good or bad, there's only so long it's gonna go on for"), ‘Easier to lie’ (“About how hard it is to be good”) and the sublime closing ballad ‘Good goodnight.’
With ‘Still Life’, Matt Hales has propelled himself to the status of one of Britain’s strongest songwriters. With a big push planned for America, it’s only a matter of time before Hales is recognized as a major global talent.
