Recommended: mat Kearney + RAC, "Memorized"
In anticipation of the release of his album, CRAZYTALK, Mat Kearney released his 4th single from the album titled “Memorized”. Best described by the artist himself, CRAZYTALK “mixes his most timeless songwriting to date with a wide, genre-bending set of interests. There are organic instruments, electronic samples, chill house grooves, tropical sounds, and collaborations with DJs like AFSHeeN, filous, and RAC all glued together by an emphasis on ageless hooks and thought-provoking lyrics. The result is one of the most adventurous, nuanced albums of his acclaimed career, filled with EDM drops one minute and acoustic guitars the next”(from his site). Kearney is also set to play at this year’s Pilgrimage Festival in Franklin, TN alongside artists such as Jack White, Chris Stapleton, Maggie Rogers, Hozier, Brandi Carlile and more. Check out the line-up HERE.
CRAZYTALK is set to drop May 4th.
