Matt Malone Comes Back With His Sophomore Album, ‘The Frontlines’
Matt Malone has released his latest project, ‘The Frontlines,’ which is now available on all streaming platforms. If you’re looking for a folk-infused pop-country ballad, then this is for you. Matt Malone has appropriately demonstrated all the essential elements of country music here, bringing an authentic approach that is manifested exceptionally well. ‘The Frontlines’ was recorded at Torreón Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bill Palmer. Utilizing raw emotions, Malone collaborates with pedal steel player Jon Graboff (Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, Willie Nelson, Norah Jones). “The Frontlines” is kind of a continuation of his debut record, “Handle.” The 2020 8-track album “Handle” conveys the phase of breaking up, while this 2022 “The Frontlines” is a reflective one, tackling the chapter of starting over.
