Hailed by American Songwriter for “(creating) a sound unlike much else out there,” 2019 saw Matt Maeson arrive at the forefront of American Alternative music with his critically acclaimed breakthrough debut album, BANK ON THE FUNERAL, highlighted by the RIAA platinum certified single, “Cringe,” which spent four consecutive weeks atop Billboard’s “Alternative Songs” chart after a steady 25-week climb. Maeson then made history with the platinum certified “Hallucinogenics (Feat. Lana Del Rey),” which spent three weeks at #1 on the Alternative chart while also proving his first multi-format hit by topping Triple A airplay charts nationwide. The triumphant success of “Hallucinogenics” affirmed Maeson as the first ever male solo artist to earn two #1 Alternative hits from a full-length debut album and only the fifth male artist to accomplish that achievement following iconic superstars Beck, Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel, and Morrissey. Moreover, Maeson joined Cage the Elephant and Bush as one of only three artists in history have had two number #1 Alternative hits on their debut album.

Currently boasting over 1B worldwide streams and close to 130M video views, the Nashville-based musician now returns with his long awaited sophomore album, NEVER HAD TO LEAVE, a revelatory body of work that embodies a newfound hopefulness while reinforcing the raw intensity and unapologetic truth-telling that have defined Maeson’s music from the very start. Mainly produced by his longtime collaborator James Flannigan (MARINA, Broods), NEVER HAD TO LEAVE came to life in a series of free-flowing, highly experimental sessions in Nashville, Los Angeles, and Maeson’s former homebase of Austin. The album’s chameleonic and combustible sound is enhanced by such musician-friends as drummer Rob Humphreys (Karen O, Jacob Banks) and guitarist Brennan Smiley (The Technicolors), resulting in an eclectic, frenetic collision of rock ‘n’ roll, folk, and irresistibly gritty pop. Marked by the restless creativity that has long fueled his musical output, NEVER HAD TO LEAVE serves as a thunderous meditation on beginning anew after a long period of struggle and self-destruction, once again providing an essential outlet for artist and audience alike.
