American Songwriter Premieres Matt Pond EPK Video; The Lives Inside The Lines In Your Hand Out February 5 on BMG

By on December 7, 2012

Matt Pond will release The Lives Inside The Lines In Your Hand on February 5 via BMG. American Songwriter just revealed the album’s cover art and premiered an EPK video that was filmed at the cabin in the woods where Lives was recorded. In the video, Matt discusses the making of the album, touring with a broken leg and how that affected the songs on Lives. Head over to American Songwriter or YouTube to watch the EPK.


The lead single from The Lives Inside The Lines In Your Hand “Love To Get Used,” is available now as a free download. The track initially premiered on Rolling Stone as Daily Download and is also available to post and share via SoundCloud. “The song specifically references the explorer side of my family,” says Pond. “An endless loop of pride and regret, battling through a history of late nights.”

 Matt Pond will be playing a series of acoustic shows which will take place in Florida this weekend. Additional Matt Pond just announced an extensive winter tour in support of his forthcoming album. Matt Pond will tour across North America supporting Jukebox The Ghost. The tour will make stops in all major cities including New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Washington D.C. and more. Tickets are on sale now. More info is available on the Matt Pond website


Matt Pond has already accomplished what few rarely do. A career musician with a die-hard following that continues to grow with each album, and a resume that includes the title song for a motion picture soundtrack, a long running Starbucks holiday commercial (featuring “Snow Day,” airing now) with a hook that’s always stuck in our heads, selling over 100,000 albums to date; his success is matched only by his prolific outpouring of talent. But Matt takes those things with a grain of salt, in Lives he shows us what’s really important.


With the new album, Matt Pond is stepping forward with striking honesty and humbling optimism and delivers his strongest work to date. And with this transformative record comes some distinct changes – removing the ‘PA’ that has accompanied his name for nearly a decade, his first official ‘solo’ release, and partnering with new label and longtime publishing partner, BMG.
