    Northward bound with Matchbox Twenty. The band announced the release of its hugely-anticipated new album North, scheduled to arrive everywhere on Sept. 4.

    North marks Matchbox Twenty’s fourth full-length studio recording and first all-new album in a decade. "The title refers to us finding our way," says Matchbox Twenty’s Paul Doucette. "We went into this record with a lot of material. Many different songs that could have taken us in many different directions. It sort of overwhelmed us for a bit. But, at a certain point, we figured it out. We figured out where North was." The album's electrifying first single, "She's So Mean," is slated to be unveiled in June.

    NORTH sees Matchbox Twenty driving their pop-rock sound further forward; magnifying the indelible melodies, crafty lyricism, and glorious hooks that have always defined their multi-platinum body of work. The band—Rob Thomas, Paul Doucette, Kyle Cook and Brian Yale,– lived together last Summer in a house in Nashville where they all collaborated on the new material before once again joining forces with the Grammy Award-winning producer Matt Serletic at his Emblem Studios in Calabasas, California. The result of their labors stands among Matchbox Twenty's finest, with songs like "Overjoyed" and "Put Your Hands Up" marked by the band's instantly identifiable sonic approach and unadulterated high spirits.

    '90s nostalgia in full effect.

    Are you heading North?
