LISTEN: Matt and Kim Release First Single, “Get It,” From Upcoming Album

New Glow will be released on April 7 via Harvest Records

It’s been three years since we last heard new music from Matt and Kim, but today that drought is over with the announcement of their fifth full-length album, New Glow. To accompany the news of LP, the Brooklyn-based, high energy, alt-indie-pop-rock duo released the upcoming album’s first single “Get It” via a lyric video directed by Matt Johnson himself.

The single features a heavier, hip-hop inspired sound than we are used to hearing from the duo, and Johnson promises that New Glow will showcase a new side of Matt and Kim that they are very excited about:

“Anyone who has seen us knows we love any style of music you can have fun and get wild to. I’m not sure we were able to put that diversity on any of our albums the way we did on New Glow. While there are definitely songs that will feel familiar to people who know our stuff, there are also songs like ‘Get It,’ which have always been part of who we are but went unrecorded to this point.”
