Let’s get back to where honest music lives, where a perfect drum beat and soulful croon single-handedly stir up deep-rooted memories, and sound familiar and timeless on the very first listen.
That’s where Matt Andersen‘s “Let’s Get Back” takes me. Producer Commissioner Gordon’s simple, succinct rhythm is the song’s heartbeat, but Andersen’s booming, giant voice, hardened and weathered from worldwide touring, is its soul. Summoning the ghosts of gospel and blues legends, Andersen sounds like he’s writing and performing on a whole new plane.
“Let’s Get Back” is from Matt Andersen’s forthcoming eighth full length, Honest Man, due February 26 from True North Records.
