Australian folk singer/songwriter Matt Corby is back after two long years of silence. His new single “Monday” was shared with fans via SoundCloud and premiered on Triple J on October 1st. Though it sounds rich and full-bodied, it is exclusively made of sounds produced by Corby’s body and voice. No guitars, not even a kick drum.
This new song is the first taste of Corby’s forthcoming debut album, which was almost fully written and recorded in the coastal town of Berry and will be dropping early next year. The young musician explains that “Monday” is “a song about being able to appreciate where you are, being mindful, and thinking that maybe you don’t need much to depend on or define yourself by, you just need to enjoy the fact that we all get to share this single lifetime together.”
