"Faster," the debut single from Matt Nathanson's forthcoming album Modern Love, is the most added track at Triple A radio for the third consecutive week! The early success has also secured the track a Top 15 spot on the Billboard Triple A chart. "Faster" is available now at all digital retail outlets. Modern Love will be released on June 21st. In honor of the single's release, Nathanson offered fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of "Faster" here.
Known for his legendary live shows that are both wildly funny and emotionally provocative, Nathanson took a year off the road to record Modern Love – the first break he has taken from touring in his 15 year career. The writing process started by exploring songs that were more physical and groove-based, drawing from influences such as Depeche Mode, AC/DC and Talking Heads. By the time the eleven songs, written and produced with his longtime collaborator Mark Weinberg, were completed, Nathanson was marveling at the new territory they had covered. From the "Depeche Mode groove" in "Mercy (Less Drowning, More Land)" to the ecstatic opening track and first single "Faster," to the soaring "Run," which features multi-platinum country duo Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, Modern Love is a luminous and bold departure.
