The always enthusiastic Brooklyn pop duo Matt and Kim have a new album on the way: New Glow, the fifth LP from Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino, looks to be an exhilarating effort as always. “Anyone who has seen us knows we love any style of music you can have fun and get wild to,” Johnson said in a press release. “I’m not sure we were able to put that diversity on any of our albums the way we did on New Glow.” The first song they shared from the album, “Get It,” makes this willingness to get weird clear with a supremely catchy, hip-hop inspired beat.
“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,” Johnson said.
The new song comes with a lyric video made up of footage from some of their favorite live shows, which Matt and Kim helped edit. “Going through that footage really made it hard to believe how lucky we are to have the best fucking job in the world,” the singer noted. New Glow will really start shining when it drops on April 7.
