When I was interviewing local filmmakers Colin Cunningham and Madison Graie earlier this month I used Matthew Good as an example of an artist that has had great success with iTunes since they were excited about their short film’s premiere later this month. As it turns out Matt has done it again with his latest digital release.
Through hard work, self-promotion, and the power of the internets, his latest album Live at Massey Hall has climbed the iTunes charts, just days after becoming available.
October 7th iTunes Release: The entire album will be released internationally and the first 12 tracks will be available in Canada.
October 7th Physical Release Pre-sales: Pre-sales for the limited edition double CD will begin on October 7th through the Matthew Good online store. Note that the store is able to take international orders.
November 4th Physical Release: 10,000 limited edition double CDâ€™s will be released at retail in Canada. Availability of the vinyl release will also be available on the online store and at retail. The remaining 8 tracks will also be available on this date on the Canadian iTunes store for $6.99.
You can listen to some preview tracks on his site but if you are familiar with any of his music or live shows over the last decade, you certainly will not be disappointed with this 20-song, double-sided gem.
